Just over 50 years ago, the Beatles arrived in North America. Seeing them on the Ed Sullivan show was just the start of a long musical journey for many of us who have followed the 4 singers for all their years as a group, and for their solo careers as well.


After attending a performance of their music in the show “Let it be” last evening, I know why their music has stayed fresh for so long. This seemed to be a perfect fit for a prompt at a new poetry site  that has presented a challenge to use 6 listed words in a poem. Here is the one that I wrote, with the 6 words bolded.



at a Beatles tribute concert

that they are still the best

from the first to the final tune


their songs pushed some borders

stretched the edges of rock

with their freedom to sing and compose


Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Each day, I see “Imagine” on the mantle, and I do just that. Have a great week!
