The Poison – a fantasy poem

The Poison is a fantasy poem of the poisonous lies spread by the court of a queen to protect their influence by breaking up the romance of the queen and a brave knight, leaving the queen romantically alone for the rest of her days.

The Dance – a romantic fantasy poem

“The Dance” is a fantasy 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. A best fantasy poem, and poem of a long and close romance.

Cinderella – fantasy poem

This fantasy Cinderella poem is a full version of the story where I was careful to include all the Disney characters, fairy god mother, mice, evil step sisters, grand ball, prince, and glass slipper.

The Flower – fantasy poem

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.

So Long Ago – fantasy poem

A woman, lost at sea on a ship much like the Titanic, the love of her husband never wanes until he grows old and ghost-like, they are reunited. A very ghostlike feeling permeates this entire fantasy poem and love story. I consider it a best poem.

The Dream – a fantasy poem

Eery and dreamlike – this fantasy poem tells the story of an older, but still beautiful woman who lives alone, but is guarded by the ghost of a past love.

Alone – fantasy poem

A fantasy poem, in allegory, of a beautiful woman who makes a choice to reject a great love, and pays for it in growing lifelong isolation. A best fantasy poem.
