The Monolith – a science fiction poem

A single monolith stands guard on a far moon to guard a planet from invasion, left by who? This science fiction poem tells the story.

The Woman and the cat – a fantasy poem of loneliness cured

This fantasy poem about finding a stray kitten on the street saves a lonely woman from her isolation, and brings the cat and her together as a family sharing their mutual love.

The Dance – a fantasy poem of romance

“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.

The Christmas Tree – a fantasy holiday poem

The Christmas Tree is an inspirational Holiday poem written especially for the Christmas Holiday. Not my usual poem, but it expresses the importance of family and faith, and the love of God. Bets are on that at the end – you shed a tear of joy. It’s a beautiful Holiday, and best fantasy poem.

Enon Bo Sheeki — a fantasy poem in allegory

This somewhat tongue-in-cheek fantasy is really an allegory of a young man finding his manhood and confidence as he journeys the river of life, and finds himself.

The Flower – a fantasy poem in allegory

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.
