Inquisitive Eyes

Soaring in a cerulean cloudless morning sky
a festive flock of bright whimsical jewels
with turquoise tail feathers and peach-fuzz masks
such a dazzling sight sublime
to the inquisitive eyes
of my temptress muse
so I must pick up my slender pen
and upon the stark white paper
scratch her beautiful words again

Author’s Note: And here we are, the last day of NaPoWriMo. I want to thank all those that gave me the encouragement and will to keep writing. I have grown as a poet, I’ve learned to listen to my tender muse and give her free reign, and I have gleaned so much knowledge reading from my fellow poets. Together, we are such a strong community from all over the world. WE DID IT!!!

  1. To capture that which takes our breath away and to describe it differently each time… is quite an effort.

  3. I love the contrast between the vivid colours of the opening lines and the stark whiteness of the paper waiting for those beautiful words to be scratched on it.

  4. How can anyone blame a muse for not being able to resist the lure of beauty that begs to be inked into more? This is lovely!

    Congrats on all the April poem(ing).
