    John, where are you in
    our infinite Universe?

    Your various baptized rhythms
    and melodies are dispersed
    across the cosmos.

    Your magical melodies
    are still giving the people
    joy and hope.

    John
    Jazz
    Jupiter
    Mars

    A man immortal whose music
    and mind mean more than our celestial stars.

    John Coltrane
    Collected but never insane
    A brain of the bounds of
    our galaxy

    John represents mastery
    and tenacity at their finest

    John's world was life minus
    chaos, mayhem, war,
    starvation, and shattered
    dreams

    This is why he created
    A Love Supreme.

    Thanks

    Thanks to you all.

    I appreciate your comments about my piece.

    Means a lot to me.

    John Coltrane is my favorite musician. His style of jazz revolutionized jazz music and brought a whole new energy to the jazz music movement.

    Brother blakverb I got into jazz music heavily not too long ago. It has replaced rap as my favorite form of music. I listen to it just about every day. i'm gettin' edumacated on jazz bro!
    :) ha haaaaa. :)

    We could probablr build on jazz for hours man. Word.

    Peace and Power people,
    Jazz Soul a.k.a. Universoul

    reply

    indeed it is Triniti, indeed it is. :)

    i'm fortunate to have jazz to ease me and inspire me.

    it's the perfect kind of music for a person and poet like myself
    who is so moved by it's freeing and creative energy.

    thanks :)

    universoul aka jazzsoul

    peace and progress always
