Letter to a Literary Muse

Letter to a Literary Muse

Your time is spent nurturing your fans, and I am preoccupied with once and future worlds. I am never in sync, but I see you in each parallel; we touch and go on our way. Constantly inconstant forces in each other’s lives.

But I, unlike you, have never been anytime; born in a thistle maze, kept captive in a briar patch, wandered worlds only in my head, where I dream dreams in Mobius strips: nightmares and fears; misplaced intentions and missed chances; a thousand thousand deaths, countless lost and founds.

This night, I dreamt in Celtic lore, both modern and past, simultaneously; my mind’s eye’s mirror reflection; dark red hair in cascades, hunter-green dress, among glass and metal and life-in-a-pod on a strange new world. There is no prickly nest to trap me; to hide me in thorny safety. I am exposed. Alone.

You. You see me. Not a mirror reflection. No haint from a past world. This is the future. Our future. You gently work a twig from my hair, and hold it for an eternity while our worlds dream themselves together.

  1. Very subjective, your relationship and musing with your muse. But I caught the gist of it. And the gist of it resonated with my obscure processes. I love your last line: “You gently work a twig from my hair, and hold it for an eternity while our worlds dream themselves together.” Definite sense of synergy at work.

    1. I tried…with dreams it’s funny because when they are so immersive like that for you it’s hard not for it to sound like “Hey, I went to the store and bought some peanut butter” when you share them with other people. *laugh*
