jesus's real face

The real face of Jesus

Oh Christianity!

a long history

forever arcane to us

mostly fantastical

no son of god he

a mere mortal, Jesus!

A coterie

of twittering friends

are we

writers

painters

bloggers

poets

story tellers

a mere clique away

whose only notion of

war

is the one she’s having with

Ephebe?

I wouldn’t  lichen

that to any Greek god;

it’s just some

parasitic type of

Like a Master’s

craquelure

the beauty

Helen of Troy

raised a few

a thousand ships

but on the face of it,

that’s just a

figurehead

has launched

one thousand ships,

started wars,

Oh Sun God

you who warms

my very soul

and imbues

evening skies

with purple

orange yellow;

heavenly hues

Funny how a scurrilous remark like

“my god’s words are more powerful than your god’s words”

can start a war that lasts for thousands of years!

    Hi Anne,

    Love your verse , thought these might bring a smile.

    Re the Cougars

    The craquelure of Madam Cougar

    would

    surely scare

    the modern day

    ephebe away

    and re Helen

    T’was surely more that figureheads

    that Helen roused

    I espouse

    Keep at it ,

    John

  3. So popular is Helen of Troy. I wonder if she was as beautiful as thought. I class Sophia Loren as the most beautiful woman of our time. Maybe she will be classed the same in centuries to come.

    Beauty certainly is in the eye of the beholder, Rita, and ideas of beauty change so much over decades let alone thousands of years. I do agree with you about Sophia Loren!
