Mind your Muse

Mind your Muse

(Just a Poem)
.

.

I never know

                   What my Muse
                   Might soon produce
.

Or the time

                  The silent Shrike
                  Will suddenly strike
.

The time’s unknown

                   When life’s delay
                  One more day
.

Works left Incomplete

                  Is far worse
                 Than a curse
.

So get going

                 You might write
                 Through the night
.

Or you’ll find

                 Your body still
                 On cactus quill
.
.
Author Notes

A Shrike is a bird known to impale its prey on a cactus. I thing of a poet with inspiration as a little mouse in the dessert scurrying about for sustenance. Watch out for shadows in the sky! Just 3 words per line.


This poem doesn’t have any formal named format that I know of. I just wrote it this way.
