Dr. Charles A. Stone is a resident of San Antonio, Texas. His poetry has been published in various journals and anthologies, and he even has won some prizes for his work. He writes about love, the sea (including beaches), parallel universes, science, wildflowers, childhood, the passage of time, the environment, cooking, and whatever else captures his attention (including twisted nursery rhymes). He would never be accused of following rhyme and rhythm too closely, though he has experimented with form and classic meter. In this latter regard, he has devised a form (trimeric – rhymes with limerick) of which several examples constitute one of the pages on this site.

Dr. Stone posts a poem every week – they appear under the Weekly Poems button to your right. They will be retained there for a month and then archived under the heading corresponding to their main themes. You may comment on the poems during their month of posting; once archived, comments are more difficult. If you feel compelled to contact Dr. Stone for other reasons click on the contact button to the right. Your comment may populate on the Archives page – so be it. Remember, though, that comments may be visible to the public (at the good doctor’s discretion), so don’t be scatological!
How about Honors and Awards?
Dr. Stone has received sufficient things of this sort to encumber this page were they to be listed individually.
