CALLIOPE - GREEK MUSEI wait for her each morning

in the backside of the night

in the final hours of darkness

just before, the dawn’s first light


I long for her arrival

so in darkness I can see

and I listen like a lover

to her whispered words for me


she comes and she surrounds me

and the thrill, it still astounds me


she softly sighs and tells me

things I need to hear

she wraps herself around me

and gently holds me near


and in those tender moments

the ecstasy is real

and I write so I’ll remember

the way she makes me feel


I wait for her each morning

in the backside of the night

with a lover’s lust that’s burning

just before, the dawn’s first light


and though she’ll never, belong to me

you know each day, I long to be

alone again,

with my, Calliope

    • So thrilled you loved this, Ellie!!! 😁 Your comment is so sweet and meaningful to me – the best reward ever is to know that you have touched/reached a reader!! Maybe you can share with us how you and your Muse operate?? Would love to know??

      • Ah, do I spy another challenge, Chuck?? I’ll definitely give it a go when I have time. This week, I have my two grandchildren staying for a couple of days. I went get much writing done then, so will set my brain to thinking about this after they leave on Saturday morning. Looking forward to it – both my grandchildren’s visit and my latest challenge. πŸ˜ŠπŸŒ·πŸ’•
