I write what I feel…

My Muse

Speak softly, gentle muse,

Whisper in my ear

So only I can hear ~

O would that you could!

Instead I have a baying hound

Snapping at my heels

Saying nought but ‘Write… write… write,

You silly twit.’

And what can I write

That I have not yet writ?

Where is your inspiration?

All I have is perspiration for my trouble

As I struggle…

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  2. You produce such good poetry – in spite of the “snapping at your heels”, Denise. My contributions are far more laboured. I ignore the snapping and write only when I am moved by some happening or memory. Thus I post much less often!
    Thank you for your poetry, I love to find it here

  5. Do not wish away that hound!
    And its urges not refuse.
    For mine has left without a sound,
    and took with it my muse.
    To nevermore again be found?
    Or as I pray, just a lessoned ruse!
