Ariana

Written for Creative Bloomings #161, “Highly A-Mused”
Today, write a poem describing what your muse looks like. Give it a name, a face, physical characteristics. Breathe life into your muse, and it will stick around and serve you well!

Wrapped in layers of lilac-
printed silk shawls that drape
in folds to the floor,
she is Ariana, a vision,
illusive, ethereal.  Sea-scented,
smoky black hair, waves
down her back, where
a hint of a green
fin is sometimes visible.
As a mermaid, she encourages
me to explore other worlds,
allowing all possibilities
limited only by the stretched
canvas corners of my imagination.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
