Welcome Home, Muse!

Updated on March 3, 2011

It has seemed to me,

Long years agree,

My Muse had gone astray.

Inspiring rhyme,

My love sublime,

Had wandered far away.

At a loss,

As a ship, wind-tossed,

My pen, it yearned to write.

But the words were gone, and

My pen yearned on

For my Muse had taken flight.

As it is clear

To a writer dear,

A Muse-less heart is hollow.

My heart was sad

And my pen was mad

But the words refused to follow.

Though many things

Inspiration brings,

My pen was poised but dormant.

My heart would burn

For the tides to turn,

But my brain was locked in torment!

But then, one day,

In a hapless way,

I met a fellow poet.

Upon reading his work

I began to smirk

And my Muse returned to show it!

I've alot to say

And a debt to pay

For the smirky inspiration...

The Muse I lacked

Is no longer sacked,

Now it's on to publication!

      W.K. Muse is a funny thing, tempermental, elusive at times and quirky. Mine is, anyways. I am just so grateful for the gift that so often just flows through my pen. When the ink runs dry, I get frustrated. I am grateful for your gift as well. Its powerful stuff!

      I am humbled by the fan mail you left, especially coming from a professional talent such as yourself. I am so looking forward to sharing more of your work

      You took the words right out of my mouth...I often joke about my own Muse but the truth is...I would be lost in space without the wonderful Muse that guides my hands. Beautifully, beautiful!
