muse trident

long before tears conspired
to pour the four oceans
the ancient Greeks acknowledged

a lone muse could not satiate
a human’s desire

and ten divisible by two
too dull in its perfection

in cerebral court
it was decided
to incite
tridents of meditation
three groups of three
to wage ongoing battle

in homage to originality

we humans need to believe
inspiration does not dwell within
and creative stimulation
something to unleash
outside ourselves

still may be
too few
blue horsesyellowed horses
inspired by avant-garde artist – Franz Marc’s, gorgeous colored horses, all of them

  1. Bravo, Miss. Everything about this post is p-e-r-f-e-c-t. Love the message indeedy — and the art … it’s truly amazing and demonstrates how one work can inspire another (and let me just add that the inspired piece [the AM horses] is, for my money, far superior to the original). πŸ™‚


  2. Beautiful! You have your own unique way that’s starting to become recognizable (to me) and if I saw a drawing somewhere out there I think I might be able to say “hey that looks like AnnMarie!” πŸ™‚
