Motion is My Muse

Motion is My Muse

Stillness irks her. Like a naughty child, she pesters around the armchair blowing “chase me” into my ear. As usual, I succumb. In a prolonged moment, walking boots replace slippers; warm home comforts meet with a cold slap. At first the atmosphere is hostile, but she begins to weave her magic, pointing to Red Kites etched on Cumulonimbus; a distant woodpecker hammering through moving trees. She runs into empty rooms, turning on lights and painting “I LOVE YOU” on vacant walls. We embrace and my reason for being, flows.

With every step
She leads the pen to places
Where dreams are hidden

Thank you to Charles, at The Reluctant Poet, for the conversations about Calliope  and planting the seed, and to the Sailorpoet for thoughts on his recent travels and helping to coin the phrase “motion must be your muse”.

Wonderful, Davy! I’m waiting for my muse to do her magic–ambivalence is her reply.

OMG! Davy, what an awesome piece, and still with 3 powerful and beautiful lines at the end. You continue to amaze us with such excellence! So happy to hear that your Muse “Loves You”. Is this Calliope? I hope. I’ve never been brave enough to knowingly make her jealous! Ha! Kudos! Bravo! Bellissimo Davy! More please?

    Thank you Charles for your kind and very appreciated words. I am experimenting with different forms of poetry and glad it is being well received. I am enjoying the haibun, it adds a little flavour to the haiku 🙂

Beautifully written. I recently had a visit from my muse while flying from the UK to the US. Hoping I haven’t left her up there or writing could get expensive!
