Amused

sometimes I wake

and catch her scent

                  my Muse,

I named her Misty,

for she’s mystical

            and mysterious

she conjures words

      as

         drops

of rain

        inky syllables

brush my

                  nose

and I’m enamored

but no more than her

 she winks / I stare

we’re frozen in time

and maybe in space

for she’s all around

like a thousand angels

giggling, composing their song

I hum along

then snatch their pen

they laugh again

say I’m

        aMusing

and we’re both amazed

how the

           story

                  unfolds.

Written for dVerse Open Link Night inspired by Ingrid’s prompt I missed on Tuesday Poetics: Who’s your Muse?

  1. Love this, Tricia! How you wrote it and the rhythm, it reads like a dance between you and your muse. I especially loved these lines:

    “For she’s all around

    Like a thousand angels

    giggling, composing their song

    I hum along

    then snatch their pen

    they laugh again

    say I’m

    aMusing”

    So well written. ❤

    • Thanks so much, Lucy! I finally got to join the live to read this only to have my internet cut out once in the middle of it, but eventually got back in there to reread it. I’m never moving my laptop upstairs again!

    • Thanks, Merril! I will never try to move my laptop upstairs again after it cut out! Our router is in the basement so I guess that was the issue. I enjoyed writing this one! 💗

  2. I absolutely love this 😀 and can picture her so clearly in your words, Tricia especially; “she conjures words as drops of rain/ inky syllables brush my
    nose and I’m enamored,”… sigh … as am I 💝💝
