Poetry Magnum Opus

Outside a church girl with permanent

mine deep scratches on her face

silently sells me matches-I light a match

and through the round church window

I see a crucifix propping Gods eye open-

the earth his spinning eye-the cross and eye

bridging time-humanity's leap into a new religious

paradigm-cross and earth meet- man's divine

awareness is compete.That night I light two

matches beneath a full moon and place my

hand beneath the flames and see God the

hooded falcon and Jesus his falcon-they cannot

see the fire in the eyes of each other.

Dreams were my bird of pray as i slept-

I was drawn to a wilderness where Christ

wept nails and howled beneath a full moon

the wind caressed my wings and his hair

he looked into my eyes and intoned a prayer

and hail-stones came down onto the plains

and bounced off my bedroom window pane

waking me-in the mirror I could still see the

figure of Christ preserved within my eyes..

intense poem and i have to honestly say your visuons you atr having are very strong unique experiences. crying nails is one of the most originaal lines and images i have read in a poem. it makes me think we are pelted fom the sky with nails coming out of his christ's eyes like lightning striking people on the ground from up above when he rose and how he will return. much enjoyed.
