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.
Star Bender is a free verse metaphysical poem about a conversation that takes place in a millisecond of thought, within a dream, between an earth mortal, and a Supreme Being, the “Star Bender”, traveling between the stars. The conversation asks and answers the eternal question of who we are, and what is our future. It is not my usual poem, but I consider it a best fantasy poem, nonetheless.
As the two dominant races of a planet prepare to come together in total war, the metaphysical guardian of the planet, the Time Lord, intervenes and saves the planet from destruction. A fantasy poem with deep metaphysical meaning written in free verse that spans a hundred years, and one of my favorites. A best fantasy poem.
