Curious about what fantasy and science fiction might look like in poetry? Check out my collection, titled Under Every Moon. Published as a mainstream work, it nonetheless has Christian concepts deep in every poem (if you look hard enough).
This is not greeting card verses. I write in a variety of forms, rhymed and unrhymed, from the very old split-line skaldic and balladic forms to more contemporary free verse to prose poems (including a reprint of "Shell" first published in The Cross and the Cosmos ezine) and prosetry (reprint of "The Bravest Fell", ditto 1st publication with TC2).
"Explore edges where the mundane and uncanny converge, where ordinary and extraordinary intersect, and where reality and fantasy sometimes collide. Hear the voice of sand, of birds, of the tarot's charioteer, of the crone who spins and weaves dreams and nightmares. Feel the talismanic beat of a drum, heart, or hoof; find a name, witness ghosts dancing, and learn secrets of the sea—Under Every Moon"

It was fun to pull all those poems together even though writing them spanned a number of years. LOL The hardest part was finding the dates for a couple first published before Y2k so the acknowledgements would be correct.

Update: From Charlie Dawg Press, Under Every Moon is now available in both print and Kindle versions on Amazon and CreateSpace.
My techno-beast computer is being uber-glitchy about adding links today, but I'll add them as soon as it decides to mind its manners. In the meantime, it comes up when you type in the search field there: Under Every Moon by G.L. Francis.
