Once a great guitar contortionist
alluded to the Axis
He provided peculiar clues
to a mystery that still hadn't been solved
Were we too caught up in a druggy haze
to see that Jesus Saves
Purple melodies dripped into tie-dyed brains
only to be erased by L.S.D. trips
Believing to be believed
Maybe the drugs made you feel
But really were we ready
Ready to understand this Gypsy
and his blissed out harmonies
Wanting to take us to a distant multiverse
Were we ready?
It's o.k. what he left behind
is as Bold as Love
Jimi Hendrix (you are loved more than ever)
hells yes man. this rocks. i love the creative 'ness' it makes me see this poem. it dances in my mind. this is truly poetry right here folks. and Jimi Hendrix is the man. i have a guitar pick with a picture of his hand on it and his signature on the other side. yes. this is amazing. love it b
i love the color imagery you use 'purple melodies.....tie died brains...' i'm very fond of color imagery myself, however, i cant seem to capture it quite so neatly as you did. sweet.
Hell yeah, I wasn't around to appreciate Hendrix in his time, but his legacy remains as inspiration and just friggin AWESOMNESS> A ten from me, because I love your style and I friggin love Jimi Hendrix!
I really like how you played on the words 'dripped' and 'trips' in those two lines, that's pretty sweet.

What a shame to have lost such a great musician as Jimmy Hendrix. He is well remembered even by the young. My children enjoy his music, how sad to have been lost in the haze of drugs. Jimmy along with other greats left just too soon. Jimmy may have left us but he lives on in his music and that we can always enjoy. --Melvina--
