Photo of the day: BEATLES INFLUENCED 1973 POETRY “SUNRISES”

SUNRISES - Copy

Photo of the day: SUNRISES – Part of Mondays on Memory Lane, a few weeks ago I found my junior high school poetry project from 1973 (see Jan. 20, 2014 post for the story) called “Reflections on My World“. There are twelve poems, here is the fourth “Sunrises” heavily influenced by listening to the awesome Beatles 1969 song “Because” on my  ’Abbey Road’ album over and over again with my giant headphones on in my room.

 SUNRISES

Isn’t the earth beautiful?

Just sitting here alone

getting high.

That beautiful sunrise,

isn’t it beautiful?

The sunrise, reaching,

so far and wide,

Into so many lands –

Waking all the lands of God.

Isn’t is beautiful?

I wish it could last

forever.

Just sitting here,

getting high.
