Long Ago God

I remember when you were god
when you were Samson and Solomon
that whenever I looked at your face
you were a pyramid,
abutting the sky and luminescent like Polaris
with showers of light coloring your shadow
It was then
that the mere hint of your voice
ended my day-long aches
and it was then
that a gingerly touch from your hands
turned erstwhile gloom into blue sky
I remember when you were god
You were the breath of the Nile
flowing, flapping your wings
and generating perfection
It was then
that I cherished the day
when, I too, could approximate you
I remember when you were god

Digression I suppose, but this reminnds me of John Lennon...

God is a Concept by which we measure our pain
I'll say it again God is a Concept by which we measure our pain

I don't believe in magic
I don't believe in I-ching
I don't believe in Bible
I don't believe in Tarot
I don't believe in Hitler
I don't believe in Jesus
I don't believe in Kennedy
I don't believe in Buddha
I don't believe in Mantra
I don't believe in Gita
I don't believe in Yoga
I don't believe in Kings
I don't believe in Elvis
I don't believe in Zimmerman
I don't believe in Beatles
I just believe in me...and that reality

The dream is over
What can I say?
the Dream is Over
Yesterday
I was the Dreamweaver
But now I'm reborn
I was the Walrus
But now I'm John
and so dear friends
you'll just have to carry on
The Dream is over

:))

Whoa! Yopur digression put me into another.

>I was the Walrus

Imspired me to play with my li'l imagination on the poem The Walrus and The Carpenter

'Imagine' that Walrus and Carpenter are mapped to God/Satan or Heaven/Hell and Humans the Oysters.

-----------------------------
And thick and fast they came at last,

And more, and more, and more—
All hopping through the frothy waves,

And scrambling to the shore.

Thanks for that comment to trigger this.I hope you are not a dreamer.

Who is the anonymous poet?

Paddy said...

[Anya] If I knew the author's name then it wouldnt be anonymous, right?

Primalsoup said...

Ah, hail Lewis Carrol! :)

And surely it's not so bad, to be a dreamer! :)

A friend of mine is going thru this phase where he's reading all these books that prove Jesus was a mere mortal, like the rest of us - not God...this post reminded me of his ramblings on the subject!

It's a well-written poem...sad you don't know who is the poet...

Paddy said...

[Bonnie] Agreed!

[Gee] Mortal or Immortal..Thats an infinite question.The reason I dont have the authors for these poems are because a certain guy was posting these in emails to a certian girl and the headers/footers were missing in the emails and hence I present them as it is..

some body in the interview asked me,do u believe in god.
i said "does this make any difference if i don't? "
the sarcastic bugger said "ya it does...we dont want DEMONS in our company " lol....lol.....lol....
DEMON....i wish if could be one
but alas DEMON has more power than god...thats why he succeeds in his plans.
dont belive in bible/god/demon/hitler/tarot/jesus/allah/...what ever
find the demon in you...make him work positively for u...its tough but u gotta try.
