THE PRINCE OF PURPLE

Beneath the opal white moon, the crying doves shed their precious tears,
Causing the purple rain to fall, melting at the lavender notes of musical dreams,
Camelot’s illusionary ivory towers of brilliant colors, seemingly fades unto the
Violet shades of gray, as the minstrel’s music grows silent for the last time!
The pied piper’s fluted guitar, remains stilled in the silence of a generations
Mind, the world weeps in fuchsia stained technicolor for their slain prince
Of rock in roll, plays now within the heavenly band beyond, rocking the
Ages, lost amongst the spiritual stardust from which creations mystical
Legacies are born!
In reverences musical temple hall of fame, another name is added 
Amongst the universal giants, that have crisscrossed humanities 
Triumphant vast historical tides, rolling ever onwards within the waves
Of the timeless rebel, jamming with the beating rhyme of the 
Human soul forever!
Gentleman’s coterie of lace and satin’s refinement, is this instrumental
Conductor strumming, at the inner finite strings vibrating within the
Harmonic orchestra of an eclectic mind, a whispering dreamer whom
Heard an expressionistic tempo hidden within the color purple,
And thus wept in the violet rain!
A flickering candle quivers within the moistures clouded wake,
The concert master stands alone at the center of the musical hurricane,
Untethered from his slave marked chains, the band leader strikes against
His podium of freedom at last, rock-n-rolls final creshando, echoes
Within the winds of destiny, carried upon the voices of his generation!
Legends burnt ashes rise above this fiery phoenixes’ resurrection, 
For in truths resolve this singing firebird’s melody, shall play forever 
Onwards, as the doves cry in flights eternal soaring!
Where has the musical voyager gone, the visionary fuchsia master,
The soul captain hailing the distant shores of rock nirvana,
By playing mystical notes of color illusions, on the blank canvas
Of the horizons musical sheets, beyond mortality’s everlasting
Window of social acceptance!
Let the elegant birds of peace fly forth, with their wings appendages
Extended upon the breezes of this artistic grand master, set blazing
In lavender flames, quenched only the falling of the purple rain!
But even then harken, listen my generations of rock fans,
Can you not hear the wailing guitar, of the musical force, known
 As prince the visionary revolutionary!

    I have often came here to read your poems, but found them daunting. Yet this poem is so brilliant despite I know very little about Prince. As for th operation, don't be afraid. I did it in 1999 and am still around. We die when we must, buta good surgeon will work miracles. Afterwards you must follow his directions because you will have to diet a bit and walk everyday. You will be in my prayers.

    Hi Cheryl, this so well written, only wish Prince could have read it, he would love it. I am not a Prince Fan, in fact I don't even know what he sang and what he sounded like, so I am no judge but It is sad that he has passed away at such a young age, but they all do in that business, it is either do or die.......take care my dear friend.....Vera

    Hi Cheri I have heard of prince and think i even listened to his music once, never done much for me. I am more of the folky type music. Still in the end he is only another human being, doing all the necessary things like the rest of us do.People are just people, we all gotta die one day. I enjoyed your poem my friend...Peter

    So Sad Cherl, He's on my playlist at home. I wonderful tribute. To The Prince of Purple. In which is one of my first and all time favorite colors. I'm adding this wonderful poem to my favorite list. In my eyes, he was the most talented artist in the world. I still Love Michael more, but he does not compare to the artist Prince ever was.... a perfect 7.... LINDA
