~ Medusa’s Meadow – Poem by Muse ~

Medusa’s Meadow

Be still the moonlight in harbor’s dim
A tepid mongrel soul does serendipitously swim.
I flutter neath life’s mortal sleep ~
Faithfully keeping secrets of the deep.

Long ago in ages of innocent youth
A heart was tied, entangled ~ not aloof.
My love was given as the wind ~
Freely floating without end. We danced in meadows filled with green
Our private clover guarded and unseen.
We planted seeds that broke the soil ~
Some were fruitful ~ others spoiled. Two souls united ~ or so I thought
We dwell in sunlight where we ought.
Dark social noblemen shunned from our sight ~
Nary did we mourn our peasantry plight. The days passed as days must do and our love
Was discovered and was tested for the truth.
It was Medusa in her garden of blackness bitter born ~
Who whispered to her lover, ‘I shall attack at morn’.

So she bade us welcome with her serpent’s demonic hiss
We recoiled instantly with a sight such this.
Medusa whispered in your ear all your hurts,
your horrors, your fears.
United we stood firmly in the light ~
Daring not to pass from our meadow into Medusa’s black of night.

She watched us with beady eyes that swayed a reptilian dance
Little by little, I felt your body waver in a metronomic trance.
She smiled wickedly and with a darting of her tongue ~
She softened her hissing to a liar’s preening hum.

She sung to you all your joys, your wants, your hopes and spoils
And your love flickered but for an instant ~
but indeed the deed was done.
For in that one moment of betrayal, Medusa’s seduction
had now won.
She pulled you to her meadow where pestilence was seed ~
And harvest was the human hearts from which we all bleed.

I stood at the meadow’s gate mourning in the sun ~
While you my love were gnawed upon the deceit of the one.
With sword in hand I charged forth ~ To grapple in the bleak ~
To traverse all of hell for the true love I seek.
But nay…my victory was not to be ~
For as I raised my blade, your voice contently bade me stay ~
Your hands unyielding, held my armament at bay.

This tale will not find me in Dante’s dark abode ~
And though I am dead, I am no longer alone.
For Neptune and Poseidon, gave me shelter from the green.
I await the gates of heaven as I swim within the sea ~
And though I am forgiven ~ From your love I shall never be free.

~ Mapping of Me – Poem by Muse ~

desire youYou my love ~ are my cartographer…
Drawing lines about my heart ~
Sketching rivers ~ that flow between…
The mountains as they part ~
Intricate pathways ~ secret trails…
Undeniable passion ~
It is my form ~ now your parchment…
Inked forever fashioned ~

~ Lost Valentine – Poem by Muse ~

Because You Are Blue Valentine
(written by muse to the melody of an old waltz)
If you’re feeling blue, I’ll tell you what to do ~
If your heart is sad, and your smile just can’t be glad ~
If you’re feeling lonely, lost out in the cold ~
If your body grows weary, and blooms have grown old …
Dream of me – dream of me / close your eyes and dream of me….
Let me whisper the memories that only we shared ….
Let me whisper the memories and carry you there.
Dream of me – dream of me / close your eyes and dream of me….
Until you’re not feeling blue, and you know it’s true ~
That your heart is now glad and no longer sad ~
You feel me there, keeping you warm ~
And your body grows ….young.
And the blooms once withered …are now fresh and new.
Dream of me – dream of me / close your eyes and dream of me….
Let me whisper the memories that only we shared ….
Let me whisper the memories and carry you there.
Dream of me – dream of me / close your eyes and dream of me….
For love … true love … never fades. (muse)

~ Butterfly Kisses – A Gentle Poem by Muse ~

Butterfly Kisses by Muse~Butterfly Kisses~
~
Aged imperfection ~
Stitched upon my face…
Years and years ~ Of wisdom…
Earned by Holy Grace.
Quiet solitude ~In a humble home…
All the family scattered ~
Like nomads ~ Do they roam.
Then a gift ~
Sent from above…
A memory ~Pure and tangible…
Wrapped in innocence ~And unquestioning love.
A butterfly kiss ~
Lands gently upon my cheek…
From an unseen child ~
A kiss most sweet…
Heaven grants grace ~ And tears follow…
As youth revisits ~This tired empty hollow.
~
(muse from book Enigmatic Evolution)

Cris McDonald Shewchuk

Cris McDonald Shewchuk This poem describes exactly what I was feeling last night while watching Toy Story 3. It made me cry as I remembered so many things. My son going off the college. The children giving away their toys as they grew too old for them. The teddy bears that gave so much love and comfort being adopted by someone else. And just life in general…how it changes through the years. Muse, if you haven’t seen this movie, it is worth seeing.

~ Proclamation – A Love Poem by Muse ~

Proclamation by Muse~Proclamation~
~
Where will the sun rise on this the first day of our love?
It shall arise in the East, atop the mighty mountain citadels…
When will the sun rise ~on this the first day of our love?

It shall be at dawn, when clouds caress the globe of warmth…
What will the sun rise ~herald on this the first day of our love?

It shall announce the birth of our union’s triumphant sojourn…
A declaration from one heart to another ~
Quintessential truth prolifically declared…
Sunrise to sunset with twilight swathed between ~

Silhouetted against the light I do proclaim
To take thy heart’s pure coffer and thy name
~
(muse from her book Anthesis)
