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

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

muses
nine
still may be
too few

inspired by avant-garde artist – Franz Marc’s, gorgeous colored horses, all of them

Nostril Bone

Dear Friends,
Was I in an O’Keeffe mindset,¬†while¬†thinking about my mother-in-law who lives in New Mexico? Was it¬†current¬†high school subbing –¬†placing¬†me¬†within earshot of, Lord of the Flies¬†and ‘his’¬†staked pig’s head¬†– that prompted¬†this?¬†Whatever the flirting¬†muse,¬†Nostril Bone, manifested two days ago and I ‘kinda’ like her. She¬†may become a painting…

nostril bone Thank you. May you dream of insect-free, big skies.
