I invited my muse on my daily walk And hoped that she would come along I felt we needed a chance to talk So I could ask where I’d gone wrong
She told me that I needn’t fear I must but listen in order to hear Now I set my intention as I tie my laces And so am back in her good graces
Today’s OctPoWriMo offering is a Rispetto, based on the word prompts: Muse, Inspiration, In the flow, Creativity. Part of the suggested prep for today’s session was to write a letter to your muse, asking the best way to hear them, work with them, and how to work in the creative stream. It seems that mine, much as Julia Cameron emphasizes in many of her books, beginning with The Artist’s Way, thinks I should be having a daily walk.
I hoped to set myself free, released from so many regrets But I saw each choice gave way to events or people well met How can I rue a “bad” decision that led to happiness? It seems that joy has always risen from times of tears and stress Sometimes the paths we’re meant to explore seem to lead us to hell And yet with each hard lesson won, we can find much good as well With each road chosen, we try to ken a way to hedge our bets Plan each and every step ahead like we’re in a game of chess Which mistakes then might bring the best endings? Time and we will tell
Today’s OctPoWriMo offering is in the form of a CingTroisDecaLa Rhyme, risen from the prompts: letting go, forgiveness, victory, smoke
