Poetry Magnum Opus



Recommended Posts

The earth was dreaming about a moon not yet

born, when I entered its dream as a ghost

with the moon in my eyes in silhouette

held by the creator who joins me to toast

the birth of a new moon that dreams of a

sun collapsing. The earth, moon and sun dream

in unison giving me form, I whistle

forever sounds of fire dying, embers teem,

welding an impulse within the progeny.

Paintings and compositions allude in

multitude to resurrection. Adroitly

the creator completes his masterpiece, herein

a man on a cross. I will bring my progeny

to fruition and amend an impulse eternally.

Progeny and adroitly? Masterful rhyme.


And "moon not yet born?" Ooooo, very nice.

Remarkably vivid and musically lovely. You have great vocabulary. I love the use of "progeny," but I think you should use it only once in this poem, either in L9 or L13. A one-syllable synonym would work well in the other line or even two syllables like you have: "within its fruit," or "within my issue." .
