Poetry Magnum Opus



Recommended Posts

The cold earth released Lennon

Jesus removed his bullets and

compared their wounds, measured

cadences of earthly and heavenly

sounds. John busked on heaven's

streets, Jesus wandered earthly



God filled John's busking

hat with coins and his wounds bled

music, Jesus' divinity receded

and he was led to a desert where

he sang Beatles songs, he held the

desert in his hand.


Every earthly note slipped through his fingers

with the grains of sand and every

note poured through Lennon's wounds.

God was allured by these Earthly notes,

he and Lennon co-wrote and floated

their songs across the universe.

Hi eclipse,


This is one of your best-honed poems, again ripe with imaginative insights. I am a little less sure than ususal of the poem's thrust. Is this the universe where the Beatles really are bigger than JC?

I read it as the spirit that John and Jesus shared--I hope.

An unusual conjunction of JC and JL but fine imagination applied we can rely on from you eclipse. Kudos for the leaping of that imagination. Frank
