Let’s Rev Muse Motor!

My Pens & Reference Books for Poem-a-Day


Let’s rev Muse motor

April soon takes eager wing

Flare those twitching quills

Buckle seatbelts, Passion drives

(Hoping I come through alive!)

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Let’s (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles might include: “Let’s Get At It,” “Let’s Have Fun,” and/or “Let’s Poem.” So let’s see what we can come up with for this first day.”



Background Magic (Twiglet)

It’s in the dusk clouds

Hurrying to leave day, or

Take their place, night’s stage

Lavender-gray felt pieces

Soft blown on whispering breeze…


Oft’, in pear-shaped moon

Played like mandolin by Muse

Songs of heart, soul strummed

Background magic worn as cape

Sapphire, silver silk threads sewn

Twilight Chirpers


Some twilight birds chirp

Don’t care about early worms

They like the nightlife

My kind of feathered kinfolk

Night brings Muse, poets’ magic

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?
