My Muse (written for my good friend, Claire)


For thirty years my pen lay still
A poet who had no words to share
And then along came, Meadowmuse
A friend I've come to know as, Claire

She read the old poems that I had
Encouraged me that I write more
Saw something in them I could not
I really felt my writing poor

In April my first poem was born
The wait of thirty years had past
I found I had something to say
The words had come to me at last

Different was my writing style
So much more depth was I to find
The thirty years had so changed me
Now green this meadow in my mind

The broken hearted poems are gone
My poetry now is that of hope
I write of love and fantasy
Of times in life I've had to cope

Sweet Claire is always quick to praise
To build such confidence in me
I've let her know she is my muse
Responsible for words you see

Now eighty new poems have seen light
And yet my pen's still filled with ink
I can't believe that I can write
My writing done with did I think

I'll call this poem my thank you note
To this dear muse with long red hair
For showing me I can still write
For all her faith and being there

Thank you, Michael. You continue to grow as a poet. Keep writing.

Claire,

Such a nice compiment. :-) Thank you, my friend. You've taught me so much and I hope to learn much more from you. For the last five and a half weeks my poetry has lost its guidance. I'm hoping that you'll be able to help me with that. Are you willing? I know that I certainly am. I'm tired of feeling lost. Why don't you send me an e-mail and we'll discuss it. Or I could send you one, if you like. Maybe, just maybe I'll be able to get my guidance back. I'd love that. Take care and thanks again.

Michael

Michael, your writing does not depend upon me. You have the ability to express your thoughts quite poetically, you always have.

Trust yourself.

Claire,

In other words, your answer to my letter is "no?" Is that what you're saying? if so, then please let me know so that I can move on in another direction.
