Who mourns for a muse

Who has lost her inspiration?

Always there to inspire

Now lost on the road of life.


Tears cascade down her face

Etched by life and circumstance

Desperately searching, seeking

Needing something to rejuvenate her spirit.


Who mourns for a muse

Unable to fulfill her heart’s desire

Chasing a rainbow – perhaps an illusion

Hurting, aching, longing and alone.


Stuck in the muck and mire

That has become a life

Empathetic to all, heroine to none

Hitchhiking on the dreams of others.


Who mourns for a muse

Burdened with a broken heart

Ideas held hostage, unable to create

Her inkwell refilled by tears.


(c) Rose Limongi 2004

When I can't find my Muse I simply go somewhere I have never been before--use a different pen-write on different colored paper--anything to ignite a different muse--loved your poem--well done

A Muse by any other name is still a Rose, beautiful and blossoming all the time.

When the muse become down, then the poet weeps. From the weeping of the poet comes the inspiration that words can, and do, bring relief from woes.

Breathe the fresh air and feel what comes down on the breeze to you, a smile, a beautiful dream, a kiss. Taste the fruits of all you have been, what you will become, and what you mean to those who hear you.

Taste the glory of what you created for what you created was a thing of beauty.

I could mourn for a muse, for you, but I would rather inspire one.
Search the hills, a child's laughter, a knowing smile on a nursing
home resident, the sun in the morning and the moon at night...and
in one of these or a million other will find that will-o-the-wisp muse staked out.
Reviewed by E T Waldron 3/25/2004
