His Muse



He sits alone with pen in hand,
gold lamplight stills the evening,
and thinking on life's journey hence
begins poetic weaving.

When in the midst of contemplate,
aglow with Heaven's light,
anew from night's horizon falls
a fragrant, flowing sight.

A lovely maid of fairest form,
enwrapped in satin strands,
draws nigh and with her gentle touch
pours peace into his hands.

And with her kiss upon his brow
from lips of fragile pink,
contentment flows as whispered dawn
drains sorrow from his ink.

And, lovely verse and sonnets penned,
exhausted now, he sleeps.
His muse takes leave as once again
...for his poet's heart, she weeps.


Dear LadyClaire

WOW Claire. another magical poem. Each line is beautiful, perfect and tender.

A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.

One of my favorites of your poems Claire... but then you might have been able to discern that from my reply when you first posted.

Many, many thanks to each of you for reading this and letting me know that it touched you in some way. That "is" why we write, isn't it? So very kind of you!

Does it very get much better than this, Claire? I would be damned if it did!!!

Such a wonderful way you have with words, that my mentioning that this is BEAUTIFUL won't do much justice...

regards, sudhir.
