For many, a muse is a fantasy. For this fortunate one, a reality. This is a dedication to the value, either way.

She Is the Dissonant Romantic
by Odin Roark

She is the dissonant romantic
Who knows of imagination without reference
Of flow without reason
Of instinct beyond logic

She is the dissonant romantic
Whose vision is colored by the reflection of white light from time remembered time
Who remains invisible to those who fail to
See the valued juxtaposition of rose petals atop the compost
Feel the caress of a Chinchilla's curiosity
Hear the high C of a Bay-Breasted Warbler

Amidst the thunderous clouds of disappointment
Even as searing emotion tries to bury her
Vibrations somehow reach the inner ear
And coalesce with memories untouched

She is the dissonant romantic
Who awakens in others the blossom of a seed unknown
A consciousness that transcends all doubt
A personal truth that shocks then cradles the weary

She is the dissonant romantic
The ageless sage we all hunger for
The one committed to creativity without
Or price

She is the dissonant romantic
Forever available to some
Known to few
Envied by many

You've left me in a quandary. There are several here that could fill that bill. I tend towards the “Sage,” but it could be anyone of a number that I know.

Oh My! Velvet, silk, lace, yards and yards of taffeta this tapestry of writing. Imagination without reference, instinct beyond logic, rose petals atop the compost, creativity without judgement... rapturous. ~~ Diana

Reminds me of the biblical personification of wisdom (with knobs on!) Real beauty of thought here Odin and I'm amazed to find that the piece I've just posted bears some remarkably similar imagery - which maybe points to a "collective muse" :)) I'm a firm believer that we are motivated in all respects through a heart-response first and foremost - though the mind then instantly seeks to make sense of the findings - and I particularly like that you point to that untampered-with creative energy and intrinsic honesty that "shocks then cradles" as well as delights. May you and your muse(s) be blessed. xx

Very well done, I have seen many here that fall under the first portion of this well written piece. None of which are my fans, but I read into what is said by many. I am fortunate that my fans are true souls who speak from their heart. They fall to the latter half as do I :)

I love the perspectives you pen to paper to enlighten others and create thought. Thank you

Love and Light
