Reflection on my muse with rhyme scheme abbccb.

A Muse is there, somewhere in me
No special name I do address,
No vision clear, just emptiness
No solid shape that I can see;
A hidden form I cannot reach
No matter how I do beseech;
A muse is there, somewhere in me.

How does this muse somewhere in me
Escape my desperate, soulful yearning,
While heart and mind are deeply burning?
Where are you muse? I cannot see
What form are you that I should seek?
What foreign language do you speak?
Where are you, muse, somewhere in me?

John Prophet

I think you expressed the inner search for your own special muse with eloquence, John. A muse must inspire, while leaving the writer to his own truths.
Reviewed by Norris Williams
Not a bad effort but the subject material is somewhat cliched. Could be improved through the use of figurative language. Are there any ways you could talk about your subject differently?

I really enjoyed your poem.Nice rhymes and writing that really flows.
Inspiration is hard to define and it can take the form of a muse such as in your poem. I hope your muse never fails you.anne Pawlak.

Poets' Designs On Parchment Moons by Jon Willey

This is the latest manifestation of two poet's collaborative/writing efforts. The result is rich modern poetry with thematic diversity from romance to philosophical interpretations..
