Dear Lucas,

Poem Commentary

In a time when Christ wasn't instilled but rather shown by the ways of my parents like Beacons truly do, we treated each other like brothers and left no one behind, where have those days gone? If we look inside we may find this one truth....The more religious a society becomes the less Christianly and Spiritual we are......This one's for you Lucas, It could have been me if I'd grown up in this day. May we all find true enlightenment in the soon coming age.

Dear Lucas,

Nothing mattered but the vision
School provided no division
of the circle we esteemed.

No bullies, there was no us and them
the heart of man hadn't grown so dim
Friendships , blood brothers strong & true.

Beneath the surface of society
where none but us could see
magic from springs of knowledge we drew.

Initiation into the unknown
Into Helios unblinded we had flown
what happened to those days?

In an age, flowers of columbine
what's your's is your's and mine is mine
greed and power has lost the Way.

insideme, I like the subtle mysteries surrounding Lucas and I enjoy the brotherhood as theme here. There is so much truth here. ginga

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
