Office of Muse

Corner office, where Muse resides

(To best of my understanding)

Perhaps he lives in old lighthouse

Or sandcastles, maybe he operates

Kaleidoscope, then slips among green

Mute-leafed plants, swims ‘tween seashells

Lights votive candles…does he hold bulging

Gunnysack of petite Dream Maker?

For certain, he breathes!

Warm spirit directs windchimes’ waltz

First, soft suggestion, then quickening

Rush of color-strung Capiz-shell notes…

Transported to intangible world, pen

Speeds with hummingbird wings to catch

Whooshing words, heartbeats’ substance…

Adorned, as by plumeria lei, this glimpsed

Glory e’er nearer Heaven’s front porch ~

Why would I leave the office?

  1. Zelda, love this idea of the Muse weaving in and out of your wonderful space! Seems like your a natural to write Ekphrastic poetry (based on art/photo etc.) Also, please explore the writers digest site and consider joining us for April Poem-A-Day, a really fun way to stir up the muse with so many other folks. A well managed site– no negativity allowed!! I, too, have shell jars, and a similiar table space… with a few stems of wicker wafting essential oils… Please do consider posting with us on PB, love your lines and voice //color-strung Capiz-shell notes// windchimes’ waltz//hummingbird wings to catch whooshing words,// – some of my favorite lines!

    • Hi Pat 🙂 Thank you for your warm and enthusiastic comment. I’m so glad you enjoyed my poem–and thanks much for telling me about the April Poem-A-Day! I’m a bit concerned about how frequently I can participate at PB–and reciprocate comments–due to my cataracts; but I’ll offer my best efforts. Thanks again, wonderful to meet you 🙂
