From fairly innocuous opening lines I had no idea where Muse would take me - the middle and end of this poem was a surprise to me, see where it takes you.
The Quest - 29 Mar 10
Aurora paints the sky Dawn lifts the veil The sun peeps between Misted trees New day
Birds serenade As animals scurry Returning to their rest Shake the dew From grassy banners
Feeling the early fire Of the day Touch my face Pull the sleep From stagnant corners Of my mind Awake my body Propel me into action To try to find me Amongst The remnants Of old me Shattered pieces Discarded Scattered across the lawn Or hung to dry Like tattered clothing On leafless bushes
Will I find me? I have no idea But still... I quest
Now written, I ask Muse what it means but all I get is an enigmatic smile...
Is all there really is Being in this moment Of eternity
The garden of memories Where we cherish the ones We want to keep
Harvesting the seeds To plant for The dreams of tomorrow
This poem has a very different feel to the preceding ones and even though the sequence is now complete [the final two poems will be posted over the next two days] I am not certain where it is taking me...or what it is showing me.
Just before midnight Muse prompted me to write, I took up pen and paper and words flowed. It was only when I actually read what I had written, that I realised that the nine lines were not a poem but the titles for nine poems.
Another 'song cycle' was being birthed, I present the first of this sequence here, now.
Chrysalis - 06 Mar 10
Been sleeping So many years Waiting... Waiting till the time Was right
Around me Time passed Not fast enough And I watched As trees Sway And shiver With each passing breeze
Tides came and went Sometimes leaving Traces on the sand For all to see Sometimes Only for me The shadows Of the passing days Remain Still I slept
I have no idea how long this sequence will take to complete - I am just going to let it flow.

A quote I found...
"It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else."
I must be braver than I thought.
