 I love an ancient work for its novelty.... albeit I don't post as often to              this blog
 
the consideration that it's still here has its own attraction so bouncing back and forth here
 
After all Here for the time being is described a s a satellite

this poem (was)is from a small? series  You were..I am writing , it refers to stories in the different books that were not included in the official list which makes up the volume, or canon of the Bible. o r in your most recent book of which blogs re numerous ...

 

Other gospel stories, like those of Mary, and doubting Thomas, Judas , Pilate,  gave me the idea of trying out these poems which are like conversations between the characters and myself and the ideas most of us are familiar

 

                                 and so let us say

 

Mary called Joseph he's at the temple what do I do
   Joe said beats me I'm rough at the shop
 
call the big One ask her view down at Delphi
 
 where the Gentiles go 
when they are not sure the course of 
a planet or a prophet
 
& her love grew big as
if she carried her belly with his desire
 
his love grew each word growing world on world
wolves gathered to hear him speak
lambs and lambs of god  an
they were very fine an antique
 
 you might say and the fiddler carried the tune
