Sources That Speak

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – The Tuesday Platform:
“The Frontier of Writing”  (posted by Anmol)
Write a poem in praise of a source of inspiration — your muse, your life, your own web of thoughts, your dreams or sleeplessness, your daily tasks, a favourite artist or musician, nature and environment, et al. Also, let’s keep it between 30-60 words — there is a certain beauty in brevity after all.

Jazz give me pizzaz,
blues seep into
my veins and pump.
In studying art
I feel words jumping 
behind the painting.
Nature spins my color wheel.
Writing of nature
is a work of love. Look
around you; put pen
to paper. My muse pops in
now and then to reassure
me that imagination has
no borders.

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.

    The arts make us “richer”… and happy.


  8. I hope you know that I repeated “Jazz give me pizzaz” about 10 times (just did it again!). It just sounds so good. I’m pretty sure my muse just began to dance…
