Goldfinch60

Two Muses.



I look  up and see them,

See the pictures of them,

The two muses in my life

Giving me the gift,

The gift to write words.

Each day they are there,

There for me as I write.

Their thoughts coming

Coming into my mind

As I sit at the table,

Writing each day.

Calliope watches over me

To show the words,

The words that mean,

Mean so much to life.

Joyce, my lover, looks at me,

Her love giving passion,

Passion to my words.

So this day I can write,

As I can every day.

My muses are there

And care for me

Each and every day.

    A lovely write Gold. I've not met Calli. Or did we meet her in person ages ago?

    • Goldfinch60

      Thanks Orchi. Calliope is always with us otherwise we would not be able to write our words.

      Envious, I don't have a muse. Callioipe maybe but not a name i knew until some time after i began to post on mps.
      Someone to watch over me.

        Thanks for that d a, as you know I like Ella, as far as I believe she could sing a telephone directory and still be brilliant.
        Another recording I need to investigate.

          Many of us have our Muses, I believe. I have always looked upon Erato as my classic Muse, and my wife as my earthly Muse. I love Ella's music, and Louis was a true star also. A good write, Andy!

            Thank you Robert, yes we do all have our muses to show us the way in our lives.

              I don't hide I'm not a will educated man so I'm not sure who the statue is but i don't think I've ever seen Joyce before and that I am greatful to see! What wonderful energy of a gentle lady to of found or maybe help another soul like yourself shine so bright for us to see!!

              I thank your muse & you, with all life in between that inspired all your pleasant dreams & writings!

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you Dan, we all get help from somewhere as I am sure that you do from your wife, baby and even your dogs.

                Take care
