Our Muses

Our Muses

muses, cinquain

~

muses

a writer’s friend

sometimes their woeful bain

creators of inspiration

and pain

 

fickle

creative bursts

amazing talents flow

stumbling blocks when hiding out

flighty

 

zany

so full of life

writer’s creative fuel

zesty feelings and ideas

juicy

 

soulful

heartfelt musings

inspiration and flow

vivid dreams, imagination

fancy

 

mayhem

a drama queen

feelings to stir the pot

mischief moody and chaotic

poignant

 

muses

creative bursts

writer’s creative fuel

vivid dreams, imagination

poignant

I was inspired by Colleen Chesebro and her weekly poetry challenge to write a new form of poetry.Β Please read her beautiful garland cinquain called The Old Gods. A garland cinquain is a new form of poetry for me. It uses the classic cinquain with a 2/4/6/8/2 syllable count repeated over five stanzas. For the 6th stanza, you take line one from the first stanza, line two from the second stanza, etc. until you’ve created the last refrain.

Thank the Old Gods for Muses and Mayhem. 😜

  1. Brad, you capture the different facets of muse-beings beautifully! What a fun, mischievous read with an interesting, playful rhythm to it, I really enjoyed reading this. The rollercoaster rides a muse can take you on, perfectly described! Hope you are well my friend, wishing you a lovely week. Hugs!
