Strolling through hazy woodland,
a poet presses forward
awaiting inspiration
to strike
“Will you accompany me tonight?”
He inquires of Earth,
walking on crunchy leaves,
beneath his boots
Such craves trigger rumbling
from the woodland floor
“My dear…”
Her kiss plants his lips
on his
Vision strikes
into words arranged
aligning a poet’s mind
For a time...
He writes
and writes
until she travels on
with vanishing night

refreshed in rich light
A new day
Another chance
to venture forth again
his muse’s love
and pure

      Ps- I read the poem multiple times. I always enjoy your work.

        I have notification on for the sites whose work I don’t want to miss.
        There are 4-5 sites, including ghost human bones.
