My Brother Loved Hendrix - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Can I reach for you like a palm tree?
Moonlight on this sea of dreams
He had a letter in his fatigues
Dead at twenty two
My romance is heavy
My poetry edgy
The cold wind never seems gone
Baby maybe some things don’t go
I just can’t shine like the dawn
Too many clouds
The letter in his pocket was from me
I loved the way Hendrix played the blues
All these stairways crossing
These young graves
Wait a minute some things wrong
We all know some things wrong
Machine Gun gritty as a battlefield
My brother loved Hendrix

    I really Like the part about { all these Stairways Crossing } Makes me think of How Many Stairways to heaven their are. I for one believe Followers of Many Religions. Will find their own Unique stairway to Heaven. A Benevolent; Compassionate; Loving, and empathetic God would surely understand our many different perceptions of Religion. and our plethora of strategies to get there. three quills up for this poem: -) (Report) Reply
