Moon Muse
(a Quadrille with all the words as of 3/2/18)

Full moon murmurs,
My heart leaps. I rise,
her poem burning inside.
She begs,
With a bounce in my step,
I hurry outside.
Last season’s leaves crunch
beneath bare feet.
I find my rock in moon’s brightness,
sit, pen in hand, listening

    Yes, we have but to listen.


  2. Well? Lol! I would love to have the moon as a writing partner but it’s always silent to me. However, as a subject I’ve written so much about the moon what would I do without it? Lovely work.

    Sometimes it takes that extra bit of mood (moon) setting to get creative juices flowing. Nice.

    So smooth and captivating I didn’t realise the hefty restrictions you wrote with. And how true is this about writing — the proactive wait, the leap of faith to pen, the expectation for the unexpectable muse …

    Poetry is the best form of lunacy sometimes.
