I am recently retired and reside in the most beautiful area of Virginia--the Shenandoah Valley. I find beauty and inspiration in the mountains every day--it is one of my most faithful muses.

I love to write poetry and have been writing for - more...

Night's musings in non-rhyming tercets
"Muse" by mountainwriter49
‘Tis late, but yet I ponder star field’s glow
as I recline upon my blanket’s warmth
by softly rippling waters of the lake, but
     ‘Twas a long day filled with usual crap
     making  Monday hell and causing me to
     scream aloud as I tried sorting things.
O, Bacchus, please refill my cup as I
find ballast ‘mongst these placid waves tonight.
Their cadence soothes my lonesome soul…Thus…
     Night’s domain encompasses me, and now
     I must think; I scribe upon the pages
     words; emotions flowing from my heart.
The poet and his muse are intertwined
with words sublime inspir’d by brilliant stars.

The book continues with Late Afternoon. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
Non-rhyming tercets. The first and third stanzas and couplet are in iambic meter while the second and fourth are in trochaic meter. The last line of each quatrain is variable in length in order to make the meter flow into the succeeding quatrain.

Good music, good red wine, and the need to let the muse download her thoughts...

Thanks so much for reading my poetry.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
