A Poem by Yellow Butterfly

Are you ready to lose yourself?
Allow your muse 
to take you to
a place where you
have no control
Where moods change
as beats fade in and out
saturating you whole
Allow her to flow deeper 
than you have ever known
Let her transcend smoothly through
your veins like the sweetest honey
Reach out touch her
before she evaporates 
Be free to be you around her
trust your intuition 
lose all inhibitions
for your muse
knows all she 
needs to know
as you get
caught up in the
ambiance of her aura 
 Act on the here and now 
time waits for no one
close your eyes...feel as she
 engulfs your mind
her beats her rhythms
are everywhere...
Your mind bursting from her
wondrous sounds
Calmness overcomes
so serene is her soul
What’s there to deliberate?

You really get deep down in the groove with your muse here. It always fascinates me the type of relationship us poets have with our muse. With yours, vou appear to connect with herwholeheartedly, where she is fully in control and directing like the conductor of an orchestra, understanding all aspects of a musical offering. Mine has always been rather mean. Standing on the outside looking in. Sharing when she has a generous moment :) Maybe I need to learn to drop the control and allow her to take over. Thank you for this delightful read YB and for the thoughts your lines generated. Lovely work.

I sold my soul to the muse many years ago and am still reaping the rewards.

An imaginative offering about that favorite subject of writers, the muse. As the poem states, you have to surrender control, to allow the muse to take you to special places. If you're lucky, she may reward you with ten thousand words.
