“The Dance” is a poem of romance almost like a short love story. Written in free verse, it is a fantasy or reality we all have wished for — here symbolized by a romantic dance to a Sinatra tune, between an older, but still very much in love couple. And as they dance, it seems to bring all of that together. So, this fantasy poem, one that I consider a best fantasy poem, and poem of a long and close romance.
A somber poem to honor Chris Kyle, an American Hero, who served four tours in Iraq, and to all other fallen American Heroes, who gave their all in service of their Nation.
A fantasy story , in allegory, of a beautiful, but shy woman, trapped by her own loneliness, who meets a man, purely by chance, and of the relationship that builds between them. A personal favorite, and a best fantasy poem, although one of romance.
The Yellow Ribbon is a story originating in Civil War that has morphed many times since. My version is close to a popular song, and tells the story of a man on a bus, just released from a long jail sentence, who does not know if his family wants or will accept him back. If they want him – he has instructed them to tie a yellow ribbon around the big oak tree that stands beside the road just before the village. If he doesn’t see it – he will just ride on. A best fantasy poem.
