Whispers of a Muse

Whisper of A Muse

Take me now; I have need
Lexis to which I must heed

Ethereal whisper in my ear
Diaphanous sight before my eyes
Gossamer touch against my skin

The first preface to our prologue
Vellum void of phrase and prose

Let me bathe you in ballad
Let me shower you in sestina
Let my sweet imagery of nothing
Become your metaphor of everything

Let your periphrasis wrap me in symbolisms
Let your euphemisms surround me in similes
Let our soul be one for the discourse of rhythm
for the dialogue of reason, for the diction of rhyme

Let us fall down in the shadow of the valley of meter
Let us rise up on the rock of ages and iambs
Let’s bask in the most of incremental repetition
Until only the onomatopoeia of our couplet is left

Diamante drops on parchment and papyrus
The final edict to our epilogue

Gossamer touch against my skin
Diaphanous sight before my eyes
Ethereal whisper in my ear

Lexis to which I must heed
Take me now; I have need

    • Thanks Q!

      This was one of those rare poems that pretty much fell into place from the moment of idea conception to completion, including the silhouette.

  1. This was delightful how the muse really does drive the poet on in this piece – mere putt. Excellent work and fun to watch you incorporate poetic terms.

    Thanks for sending the muse to One shot for a brief interlude

  2. ha this was a delight to read, wether it be a fellow poet, or just your muse that you call to i hope they take you, just as you bid…

  3. This is an awesome write … took a while to comment coz I was running for my dictionary to look up all these words that are from poetry and linguistics … LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!!! ❤
