Unfathomable Muse: Four By Six/Acrostic

Sylph

UNFATHOMABLE MUSE

Delicate dancing sylph
Elegant fairy queen
Everlasting fount of
Poem after poem

Lightly Felt Tips (Republished)

LIGHTLY FELT TIPS

When you learn to distinguish
between what is truly good in poetry
(especially your own)
and what is – shall we say – not so good
then you are almost there.

The rest is just practice, daring,
risk taking and self confidence.
Satisfying yourself is the foundation.
Rules are there to follow or break;
pleasing others a welcome bonus.

So leave the back door wide open
and invite the Musey Lady in for a brew.
She loves to take a load off.
If she’s silent, it’s only ‘cos she’s thinking.
She’s just observing, sipping her tea.

Mysterious Manifesto

MYSTERIOUS MANIFESTO

In memoriam: Leos Janácek

A wandering madman
Mistrustful and reserved
Unrequited passion
And informal divorce

Consider this I beg
The unfinished diary
Of one who disappeared
To the house of the dead

Special Delivery: Four By Six

SPECIAL DELIVERY

Sit back and let it be.
Recite, “Aware, aware.
Relax, relax.”; await
till the muse delivers.

SLIPKNOT

Your muse is within
Forget all them outsiders
Simply distractions
