A drive through the open desert
Route 66
Into the horizon
1964 Buick Electra 225
Sixty-nine miles per hour
Top down
You - with your shades on
Head back
Taking in the twilight
Scarlet hue
A crimson glow
As if heaven were ablaze
From a battle between the gods
The Lizard King
Is singing to us

"Waiting for the Sun"

Ahead
Parked beside the road
Is a blue bus
Deserted by occupants
Footprints into the sand
Pants and shoes
Along the trail
A cactus stands five feet or so
Just above the crest
Bras and panties
Hanging from it
Like Ornaments
Naked children
Crossing the threshold
Into the kingdom
Of Morrison
In search of the Electric Shaman
Who died in 1971

Or did he?

Dead at 27
In a Paris bathtub

Should I wake you

From your dream
To see
The oasis
Beyond
Or dismiss
this as a mirage?

(1943-1971)

Jim Morrison said "real poetry doesn't say anything, it just ticks off the possibilities... opens all doors you can walk through any one that suits you. If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it's to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel"

The moniker "Mr. Mojo Risin'" was an anagram -- a rearrangement of the letters in Jim Morrison.

Tributes

The Doors got their name from the from two quotes from famous writers. One by Aldous Huxley that states "When the doors of perception are cleansed, things will appear as they truly are." The other quote coming from the mysterious William Blake, "There are things known, and there are things unknown and in between are the doors."

Blake
(1757-1827)
