A Muse Whispers - Poem by Tony Jennett

A Muse whispers
and the soul's pricked-up, hand cupped ear
strains hard to catch each syllable
wafting over memory's embers
scourging them to white heat.

The dull words in the crucible
melt, coalesce and run
in a stream of quicksilver moonlight

And Cat's eyes open wide on reflections
Of what amusemeant?

    To 'A Muse Whispers'

    Of what amusemeant?
    think, think, think
    of Moon and Earth
    Clashed on one thin-air reflection
    Them eyes wide open

    In the stream of quicksilver minds
    Melt, candescence and run
    The doubt lurks in the crucible

    Hurtling ideality to white heat
    Wafting over delusion's sensory
    Nerve strains hard to trap each perceivables
    Hands-up ears & soul's flip-flop teeth
    A mute whispers
    Whatever trial sings
    of patience & belief
    Nullified is Doubt

    Truly a wonderful poem Tony. I find it hard to accept if my thoughts are my muse talking or my crazy thoughts that I should keep to myself. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
