Ode to my Muse (Magic and Alchemy)


I have met you
through my poems
in several worlds;
Distant daydreams
yet so sublimely intimate
Countless conversations
yet not a single word exchanged;
How beautiful you are my muse!
You bring out the best in me
You transform me into a wizard
You beautify everything I write. 

I have felt your soft caress
when I doubted my ability
You lulled me to sleep
gifted me with visions
kissed me in my dreams
awakened me to a new world.
You are as dear to me
as the vast sky is to the bird
Our esoteric relationship gets
stronger with every word I write
How patient you are my muse!
You never abandon me 
it the difficult times
Instead, you hold me close.

  4. This is a subtle appreciation to the muse that inspires and at times ignites ! lovely poem.

  5. Such a beautiful relationship you have with your muse. My muse believes in hitting me on the head with a brick :D

  6. If not for that muse we would lose our inspiration to create, isn't it? Lovely lines! Hope your muse stays close to you forever.
