Something I listened to just before turning off my computer triggered this poem and I sat on the edge of my bed and wrote the first two stanzas, the third came through as I was writing them up before posting the poem to Muse.
Siren Song - 27 Dec 10
The siren's Wordless song Enflames the passion Within my Soul Draws me on Into her world Takes me On a journey Far beyond My imaginings
She stands before me Sylph-like Reaching out Inviting Enticing Teasing Taking me Into her secret night To dream So deep
Waking into a day Dark Without her presence To brighten my life I walk through The world Alone... I crave the night
I craft the words when Muse says "Write..." and sometimes unexpected things appear...
This poem was inspired by something I wrote in an e-mail - just a few lines but I was certain that those lines were a part of something bigger. I took it away and let it grow till it was ready.
Whisper Goodnight - 12 Dec 10
Playing Through our afternoons Watching the sun Reflect in the stream Beside the branches From the trees Feeling a gentle breeze Shake the leaves
Ripple the water Drift the clouds Shake the webs in the grass Move our dreams
Sunset into the ocean Waves brushed gold Into a symphony of light And shade Mottled thoughts echoed As night draws on
Moon glows Silver shadows Hang from the trees Ghosts of the day
I whisper a fond goodnight Into your late evening And leave a little kiss To follow you into your dreams Let the veil of stars Hold you as you sleep And bring you To your new dawn Where I will be waiting For you My love
I'm rather pleased with this - hope you like it too.
This poem grew without any inspiration from external sources initially - it just seemed to flow.
Muse Songs...Poet Sings - 04 Dec 10
Take my words Feel them Let them grow within you Let your love And warmth Feed them... For me
In your hands My love You shape my thoughts Weave the words Tease me With ideas Images Feelings Show me places From which I...
Let me hold you Mould you Please your senses Take you From here To the land Where you will birth The words for me
Poet and Muse:
Within us Whispers of the Heart Shout loud Echo through And ignite our love... The song grows
When I say "initially", I mean that I was just about to write the final stanza when I received a tweet from a friend incorporating the line "Whispers of the Heart" and it called me to insert it into the poem. So I would like to thank Pat Hammett [@Wild_Petals] now, for her unintentional piece of inspiration - thank you.

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