The Inconsiderate Muse

I have no poem for today
though I sit and scratch my head
inspiration will not come
until perhaps at three a.m.
the muse gets up to play

    They do enjoy frolicking at night, and in those gossamer space you mentioned. 🙂

    Berit,
    They do. It’s both magical and frustrating.

    Solange,
    I think muses are naturally nocturnal. I’m not. Sigh. Berit is probably more in tune with her muse, biorhythmically speaking. 🙂

    Libby, Thanks for dropping by and enjoying my poem. I’m going to zip over now and see what’s new under your lovely dum-dum tree. (Love your blog name!:) )
