Glance

My muse, long absent and much missed, has paid a visit. I hope you like this, as short as it is.

A glimpse, a glance,
The merest chance,
To see your heavens face;
With all the world,
And days unfurled,
Away with dreams I chase.

A doubt, a pause,
An unknown cause
A struggle to accept;
But with a word,
Such beauty heard,
And doubts away are swept.

A smile, a kiss,
The unnamed bliss,
Of what this life may show;
For now my dreams,
Are where you’re seen,
And where your name I know.

      Thank you. I wouldn’t go so far as to say ‘stunning’ but I really appreciate your time in reading it, and the kind words of encouragement 😊

  2. the muse decrees
    we bend our knees
    and whisper

    welcome
    sir or miss

    they breathe a sigh
    we gasp or cry
    more, please

    we write for that
    and this

    How must we harness that which calls forth such words?
    We write
    And await
    Their pleasure.

    Your muse has descended. Fine work, Simon.
    Any teacher would say, two stars and and a wish.
    Ask any teacher. 🙂
