Jim Morrison, poet?

Oct 24, 2011 Full story: Examiner.com 26

Last week Daniel Nester's essay on whether Jim Morrison was a great American poet or not has been going around the internet, and while I thought it was going to lead to the usual conclusion, that Jim Morrison's pretensions at being a poet were greater than his ability, it didn't, but it still instilled in me the urge for a response.

Jim Morrison was a great beat poet and a voice of a generation. I'm a Neo Beat poet my book "The Poetic Dialectic" should come out in January if I have no disputes over the contract and is somewhat modeled after the Lords & The New Creatures by Jim Morrison but it is a completley current take on it.

Give Us and Hour for Magic

We of the Purple Glove

We of the starling flight in Velvet Hour

We of arabic pleasures breed

We of sundome and the night

Give us a Creed to believe

A Night of Lust

Give us trust in the night

Give of colors hundred hues

A rich mandala for me and you

And for your poor body and head

a Pillow and a bed

Trouble Decree

imho, anyone who debates whether or not Jim Morrison was a poet isn't looking closely enough at the work. The real question is, how important a poet was Jim Morrison? doorsgoldmine.com

Relive the night shadows
Of unspoken passages
The eyes
Of the golden girl
Shimmering
Her soft long hair
Blowing
In breeze
Of quiet midnight
The death
Of beautiful young love
Into the mind
Of a frightened child
A dream
A door that crossed through time
Of crawling snakes,
The evil that men do,
Onto the unborn,
A mother or girl doomed...
She told of a place so far away
Where there was no pain
She spoke softly
In the moonlight
And the sea washed away all the fear
She ran towards the reef
In beyond the rocks
And she...
Disappeared forever.

The cold winter of graves
The stones within the path
Death, where doors open
A retreat from the pain
Her blue eyes melting
Her breasts against the storm
As the man walked through...

The faces of the long dead
The ghosts of forgotten soldiers
Their guns blazing
In the darkness
Of evening and final quest
A gate towards roads where no one follows
She held me close
Her soft cries broken by whispers
Her fragile hands held on
Like memories
Shattered within cold hills

I rode the death horse
Into the sky,
Over the pointed mountains
And the clouds blanketed me
And her head turned back with sudden peace
For we knew we were no longer of this world

The eyes frozen
Of misty tears
Under the frost
Into the ice
Of frozen lake
Of winter's glare
Glass shattering
Like life's awakening
The man went down to the path
Of quiet forest
In his backpack he had her head
And he had cut her throat
Her eyes dead
Ghosts of tomorrow's secret dreams
Buried in cystal stones
The unlocked doors within
The visions
Of the headless witch in black lace
Burning fate
Of the children
Of the enchanted moonlight
Of laughter within firestorm
Blood
Skin
Salvation
A simple twist
Like slaughtered prey

Thank you, sir.

Believe it or not, I made them up for this thread.

I was trying for a Jim Morrison style and it just flowed out rather well.

I wouldn't normally post my poetry on a thread, but it just came to me.

I've always loved The Doors lyrics and music. The Doors still inspire me.

I wouldn't bother with that chat. I checked it out and its just a big unorganized mess. The adult one is also mostly creeps and people looking for kids. Honestly, i'm not being sarcastic or trying to be funny. That is literally all I saw there, when I was able to tell what was going on. Most of it was just people saying random stuff with no response, which is normal for a Chat Room, but at least most other ones have a designated topic. This was just generic "Adult".

Oh and you don't have to sign up to use it. As soon as you load the site, you are in the chat room. Everything is all the same color too, so it's very hard to read.

Sounds pretty dreary.

The Google Group alt.arts.poetry.com ments that I've been a regular on for about a decade has some lively moments, and the topics are wide-ranging.

I'll get back here with a link shortly.
