The Canvas
By Bobbie Troy

I stood in front of
the empty canvas
bravely thinking that I could draw
even though my pencil had
never nurtured life or
still life for that matter

I looked and looked
and confusion reigned
where to begin?
but even more importantly
where to end

By Bobbie Troy

give me a castle
but take away
the moat

No Grave to Visit
By Bobbie Troy

I understand
that he wanted to be cremated
and his ashes strewn in the woods

but what shall I do with myself
when I have no grave to visit?

Bobbie Troy maintains her sanity and perspective on life by writing poetry, flash fiction, and original fairy tales with a 21st century twist. Her work appears in many online and print journals. Her poem, Dear Diane, was nominated for a 2010 Pushcart Prize (; her fairy-tale play, Sasha and the Tree of Sorrows, was produced in March 2011; and her poem, Dear Diane (Letter 2), was nominated for the 2012 Best of the Net. Bobbie also served on the Editorial Board for Saltain, a collection of poetry by Alice Shapiro. As a latecomer to the published author scene, Bobbie is proud of the fact that her first poem was published at the age of 62.
