Accidental Poet

If We Poets

Of valued thoughts

I call upon you my friends

Do you contemplate your muse?

The source of writes you penned


Can a muse be male or female?

Would it make a difference?

Maybe it depends on us

Our personal preference


No need to eat

Nor for water do they thirst

But when something to say

To us they turn to first


And some might say

A muse is just a myth

That only in our minds

Does a muse really exist



I’d like to believe

That within all life

A silent voice conceived


Though I could be wrong

It might be all in my mind

Or maybe of a muse

Similar thoughts you find


For what could be the source

Even with this very write

Some internal energy

Of compositional light


Could it be my muse within

Trying to band with other muses

For all of us

To pen a write for common uses


A calling for world peace

That all tribes of man

Share a sense of compassion

And not destroy each other’s land


The Earth is all we have

Together we must learn to live

Without borders for love

May we all learn to give


We write of emotions

To express with poetic flair

Of things dear to our hearts

For one and all we care


If we poets could convince the world

Without violence we might survive

To save all life on our planet

Keep us all alive

      Very good write. My muse comes from many places but just in case I have Calliope looking down at me in the room where I write.

      • Accidental Poet

        Thanks Goldie. And what does the Calliope do? Spy on you? ; )

          No she stares at me in her mystical way when I make an error - I have not seen her smile yet if I get something right!

          A fine write AP. Muses need not be 'spooky', but I don't go along with any spooky sort of stuff with muses.
          On a similar line, I don't think Yin and Yang guide me. And who are they? What are their surnames?! heehee.

          • Accidental Poet

            orchi, I can picture you with a spooky muse. ; )

            I love your poem and this verse called even more my attention.

            The Earth is all we have

            Together we must learn to live

            Without borders for love

            May we all learn to give

            It is an appeal for all to save our earth. To live for love is all we need. If you love you don’t want to kill. Thanks for this gem AP

              malu, you read between the lines very well. ; )

              • malubotelho

                Yes, I’m always looking in between there.

                a lovely poem, my friend, full of light and hope! I love the ending lines most of all. our world leaders could learn a thing or two from you!

                *hugs, Cat

                I contributed on the poem you mentioned :)

                • Accidental Poet

                  Thanks Cat. I think two of the world leaders care more about ruling the world than they do about sharing the world. And thank you for your input on my fusion poem. ; )

                  Thank you for this beautiful and inspiring poem, AP! Even though the world is in bad shape, I just have to believe that one day love will prevail!

                  As far as the muse is concerned, it has no gender, it simply IS.

                  • Accidental Poet

                    Thanks Fred, I too want to believe that. And no gender for the muse, got it! I thought so, but was just checking. ; )
