Poetry Magnum Opus

If I spoke to E.T.


Recommended Posts


Test the confluence of
Consciousnesses with bird
Song. Symbol of a cross,
Is he the guest of 
Another race who mine
The material of dreams,
A man who
Both drowns and rises
At the same time from
Quantum streams.
Intimate about autumn
Winds praying at
Cemetery gates for immortality.
Does the earth sleep
And roar in the lion's dream
For it's reflection to be restored.

Hi Barry,  As usual you offer mind-boggling imagery, uniquely you.

This is my favorite part, but admittedly it took me a couple reads, I think because of the Caps at the beginning of each line.  Normally I just ignore that.  You do it all of the time as do many.   It is a preference.  But, on this image I kept stumbling, the Cap on "The" had me stopping there which messed with the rhythm and meaning in the image. Just thinking out loud.  Anyway, this image just opened so many other thoughts.  It is really lovely.
