The Muse of Inspiration

When the muse of inspiration
knocks at the door of my heart
there is melancholy and elation
transforming thoughts into art

Flowing words in the river of thought
in search of the ocean of deep feelings
waning memories are part of the dealings
so paper and ink are brought on the spot

Inspiration is feeling the waters of the bay
to be one with myself
one; with a dolphin visiting from far away
just to admire the flight of a pretty blue jay

Inspiration is the friendly smile of a child
or the beauty of a woman with style
the kiss of lovers behind a full moon
or the sundown of a Sunday afternoon

Calliope transforms feelings to words
Erato pierces my spirit with love
and Nature sparks my life with delight
revealing the Creator magical might

Inviting a muse for inspiration
fits the company of a wife
for poetry is my expression
gathering passion into my life
