My Muse

This is the third poem in the anthology of poems called Lifecycle of a poem

“Never durst a poet touch a pen to write
Until his ink was tempered with love’s sighs.”
― William Shakespeare, Love’s Labour’s Lost

My inspiration
the music to which my
quill dances  wildly
beyond the realms
of dreams and reality

As surreal as the dreams
in the midnight
in the eyes shut wide open
to observe your
eternal beauty
imbued with the poetic metaphors
which stirs the poet inside me and
rattles and shake me to the core

Your presence alone in
opens the heavenly firmament
from where the
sonnets births
and take safe haven

Bathed in the moonlight
you conjure those thoughts
magically in my
resplendent mind
a mere glance of you
keeps the thought
brimming and alive

A mere fleeting touch of your face
brings out the divine rhapsody
to life
They think
I’m putting the
oddities of life to use;
when I secretly
hide your identity
my precious muse.

  1. Reblogged this on A Tangle of Weeds and commented:
    How blessed am I that a writer of Megha’s calibre would dedicate this brilliant write to me. This is beyond beautiful, both her words and her gesture. Thank you Megha for humbling me so. May your pen always flow with your powerful ink.

  2. The Muse is personal and need not be identified by the poet for such an impetus for poetic drive belongs to the poet. Love is, perhaps, the greatest Muse for even loss is but a derivative of love, the product of love leaving (be it death or the pulling away of a lover). It differs from inspiration because the Muse activates the foundation from which we write while the inspiration is the catalyst for igniting the Muse. At least, that’s my humble opinion. I love this, so much!
