Joyful Muse~



 Poetry is….
One of those moments
  Fixed in a stream of flying….
'Lonely wakeful night'
'Grey dark clouds; continual rain outside'
'a dressing gown hung on the door'
'a clock ticking    … and his confused longings ' 
'Frosty beads poised on a chilled mojito glass'
'Me, warm after a bath…luxurious, scented bedroom'
'The feel of the soft pillow on my face'
'The muffled sound of a t.v downstairs'
“things have ends(or scopes)…and what follows
….assist comprehension of process” Ezra Pound
Every poet finds his or her own muse
- that irresistible silhouette
      draws a verse-maker towards the
    accessible, obtainable, understandable light
It’s an invitation to connect…
   with the fluid world;
Prosaic otherwise…
Words go hither and thither
   do most of the writing,
        or  to get it to the point
     Working on a poetry
          is pure JOY…

  5. It is nice when they have a mind of their own,
    and you are just racing to keep up with them, trying to absorb all
    the detail. A moment of flight, indeed.

    One of those moments
    Fixed in a stream of flying…. even if you'd ended the poem there I still would feel completed sated. So lovely

  7. Amen. When I cannot write, it is usually reluctance to hold something still from the streaming. When I can, much joy follows.

  9. This is a wonderful read and I have to agree the second paragraph is inspirational in itself as the reader conjures up a story behind each set of words.

  10. Yes, poetry is definitely an invitation to connect; and I am so happy to have connected with you. (Smiles.) And, yes, we each find our own muse...or perhaps it is the same muse that we call by different names!

  16. It was pure joy to read this poem. I like its sensitivity and, of course, it resonates with me - that pure joy of writing a poem.

  17. I like your reference to the quotidian aspects of life representing joy....soft pillows cocktails, hot baths ,muffled tvs but my very favourite was the dressing gown hanging on the door...it add a humanity to the whole piece....really enjoyed this one !
