R EASONS for it happening ?

U NDERSTANDING WHY ?  So we ditch

M USIC ~ Hobbies ~ Friends & Family

S EEKING to Renew ~ Refine & Restore OUR PITCH ! 

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love A & B ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

 

Because our Poetry is a bit PREDICTABLE ~ *OUTBACK* gave

us a CHALLENGE !  To post *HORSE LATITUDE* by the Doors

as our VIDEO and interpret it and post a POEM (from our own}

Experience) based on it ! The video explains the literal meaning of

*HORSE LATITUDE* and why it was necessary for the Spanish

Sailors to jettison their valuable HORSES they were shipping to

The West Indies. Each Horse required 4 gallons of fresh water

per day to live. At a personal level the lyricist JIM MORRISON

(1943 - 1971) felt that His Poetry & Music & Friends etc had 

to be jettisoned to lift HIM  out of His Doldrums. He was the

Lead Singer of the DOORS (1965 - 71). JIM was found DEAD

in his bath in PARIS 3 July 1971 ~ He was 27. The Death 

Certificate ~ saidHeart Failure ~ There was no autopsy.

JIM is regarded as one of the most iconic and influential

FRONTMEN in Rock History ! Rated 47th in Rolling Stones

list of *100 Greatest Singers of all Time* & 22nd in Classic

Rocks Magazine *50 greatest Rock Singers*. Morrison was the 

embodiment of the *Hippie Counter Culture Rebellion*. In 1993

he was inducted into the *Rock & Roll Hall of Fame* in Cleveland 

OHIO as a Member of the Doors. Which I (BRIAN) have visited !

    Nice job on the challenge. We should all set challenges of music videos & lyrics & interpret them...we will get some weird ideas & understandings from them.

    I get messages from fans telling me about my lyrics & am often surprised what my words meant to them especially when I had a totally different meaning in my head,

    regards

      HI UNSUB ~ BRIAN HERE ~ PLEASED YOU ENJOYED IT ! We have lots of Dialogues with *OUT* who feels Angela & I are a little narrow in the SUBJECTS we choose so he challenged us to use *HORSE LATITUDES* as the basis for our next Poem. The Doors disbanded (1973) ten years before I was born but I was familiar with some of JIM MORRISONS Poetry and have visited the DOORS site in the Cleveland (USA) Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ! JIMS poetry is capable of interpretation on several levels. When I make a comment on New Members Poetry ~ I do attempt a bit of analysis ~ which sometimes draws a different conclusion from that which the writer intended ! Thanks for your comment !

      Blessings & Peace to You & Yours

        B&A,

        that does bring me onto a subject worrying me of late. Where have you buried your good friend Mr O.

        You say you have lots of dialogues with him but he's nowhere to be seen. Do you have his contact details as I'm a little worried about his absence.

        Thanks,

        Unsub.
