Muse

by Jay Davenport

Softly, she speaks to me,
A whisper of whimsy dancing on the
Fragile wind of creation.
Her voice is the pain of loss, and
Hope for the future.

"Create for me", and I cannot resist,
She but whispers and I am hers.
My heart, my mind, my soul; all
Within her gentle power.

"Sing", and I follow,
Words flowing onto paper, perfectly
Harmonious with her, she gazes upon me
Beautifully, affectionately, serenely.

"Dance", and I arise, taking her hand,
Emotions flowing through me.
A kiss, an embrace, just long enough to
Make me want more.

"Rest with me" she bides, slipping away
Ever so softly, until the next time.
Her wishes sated, the work completed,
I dream again.

Beautiful tribute to your muse. It flows so beautifully. Truly she stood by your elbow to sit on your shoulders as you wrote.

It's simple but has an apt title. You rightly pictured everything a muse it. The poem begins softly but smoothly and sweetly and blossoms well into the ending. Very nice.
