A tribute to my muse, as a septuagenarian defies the futile efforts of societal malaise, and dwells instead on the eternal yearning of life's tenacity.


When ink glistens

And your love cascades beneath the quill

Your eyes steadfast the muse

Your touch like that of the champagne grape before harvest

Reluctant to part the painted words

And fearful the thirst will abate

Never fear

 

For glisten though it might

Never can the page fully become

The you that is the seed

That generates the vine

That feeds the foul

That becomes the plucked

To be forever the quill

 

When ink glistens

Love the way you have expressed this. Often when I show a painting I have done I get questions like.....what do you feel while you are painting this? The muse for me in writing and art is lacking for words for me because of the levels she takes me in......but you have found words that help others to discover this exciting moment. Thank you :-)
