Silent Muse

I got the idea for this watching my cat, Bandit, sit with an open mouth talking but no sound could be heard. I asked him what he needed and why the silent mews? Then it lead to the thought of a silent muse.

SILENT MUSE

We are drowned in oblivion

Suffocated

Hearing nothing

The muse is relentlessly silent

Afraid

Battered

Sunshine is withheld

Growth stunted

Reaching

Knowing

Waiting for the muse to surface

Without refrain we endure the emptiness, solitude, vastness

A glimmer of light in the darkness

Be ready to be found again
