The Cosmos

Looking up into the stars
On a clear moonless night
I ponder all the mysteries
Among those twinkling lights

And I'm in inspired
By the revelation
That there is more
That we don't know
Then we do know
And I become filled
With inspiration
Considering the discovers
That will be made
By the next generation

The heavens in illumination
Serves as the muse
For my poetic creation

Tidal Muse

You show me what the world really is
Indeed I buy your views
You show me how restless life can be
How turbulent and confused
People can be in this existence
Yet even so there can be peace
If we strive on persistent
Things can flow at ease

You flaunt your might and power
Always jubilant and brave
Oh how many have you devoured
With your mighty waves?
I wonder how you instill peace in me
When you're never at peace
Your waves roll on endlessly
And never will they cease

Your vastness opens up my scope
Nothing cages me in
Your eyes is now my periscope
Nothing is left unseen
And I can see beyond the superficial
With the thoughts you induce
What you inspire is magical
Oh my tidal muse

The Caribou

unimaginable
the life
without you
caribou

in cold
desolate realm
you hold
your helm

mornings
snow
evenings
snow
summer seems
eons ago
you survive
you thrive
our lives
you revive

what would we do
without you
caribou?

Alpha

today I am half leaves, half self  
the hidden self choosing knowledge  
the hidden vine-work that bursts forth  
turning my blood to moss, bark-laden  
seeking divinity beneath the surface;  
the curious miner of the soul  
 
today I choose the tangled path  
neither venturing left or right  
but earthward; I am up nor down  
the wild aflame, a casting of sorts  
crumpled in the velvet green  
of light in disarray  
 
today, the silent stag behind the ash  
wearing the dignity of my image  
before I remember to forget  
my life before this waking dawn  
the verges of these ancient shores  
dark clods of roots beneath everything

Unwelcome Spoils

Angelic though she seems
Her poison kiss is fatal
Her beauty is a dream
And scent more sweet than maple
At times her arms embrace
At others, armed with hate
Her vision of the future
Shows I arrive too late
What makes her this enigma
A brilliant but cold
Why she works hard for her figure
She knows she'll lose when old
A touch before my arrival
One not so permitted
Has led her down a spiral
Of crimes not yet committed
Her elegance is fragile
A touch could bring the break
She loves the air of love
But every touch is rape
We fight for close and feeling
But distance overcomes
We are never too revealing
But never come undone
Her bra strap on display
The world takes her for granted
But whenever we lay
We never get it started
So I grow colder still
Awaiting confirmation
To touch her brings a chill
So I make imitation
I long to take her gently
To bring her to the edge
But she fears for her gentry
Scorn when both in bed
How beautiful she is
How patient I once was
How can we both exist like this
When love for lust was lost

It is a non-entry. It was just a-muse of an expression, in gratitude to the moose.

cold humor, is hoped non offending.

Muse as a Person

Time stood still when we are face to face.
It is not so much what you look like, but who
You are as a person. I want to continue to trace
Across your chest so I remember it is always you
Who inspires me. You are my muse and my one
True reality. You always feel like the starkness
When all I want is nothing more than to run
Far away from the shadows and the darkness.
You always lift me up and you motivate me
To be a better person. You push me hard
To follow my dreams and aspirations. You see
That I would do the same for you. As scarred
As we might be, we are invincible. The dark
Corners of my mind and the doubts that are
Floating around turn into a beautiful lark,
Flying. Darling, their raw beauty does not mar
Or become ugly like weeds. You somehow
Have that power to turn the wordsmith
Part of me into a songstress and plough
Through the bad days. Your love is no myth.

My Shadow

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr_qDnDPyA4                  
*Muse* Supper Massive Black Hole                  
                 
                             
                              
                         
My pocket full of rainbows                              
my Draken warrior.                            
                            
my magic sock                              
fitting every odd-ball                              
that's missing a mate  
in my DNA selective  
cellular structure.                              
                              
My calibrated configurations,                              
My Mad Scientist                            
                              
Of mind and matter                              
he is my Tesla                              
my Hawking                              
and so much more.                              
                       
Bogart to his Hepburn,                              
Rogers to my Astaire                              
                              
My ALWAYS right                            
even when I'm wrong  
my confidant                      
My come hither stare.                              
                       
My Ludovico Einaudi                             
My Paso Doble Prince                              
My Shepherd and my ugly                             
He excites me

No, no...no offense taken. And I'm keeping it in the comp. It made me smile.
