Cues of a Muse

Amassing words
Boil in a frenzy
One on top of another
Illusory bursts

Slow to a simmer
Engines idling in wait
Even tempered

Aromatic appetite
Extract the good
All worth the wait

Open link night at  A poem compiled by a developing theme this week fits in well.

    I like the progression: frenzy, simmering, thickening and then “Extract the good”.

  2. Good morning Mary, what a blessing your poem is to me this morning. I needed this reminder “its worth the wait”. Thank you my dear sister in Christ.

    “All worth the wait” – love the metaphor you have built here, Mary – very effective.

    Enjoyed all the descriptive verbs…this muse was busy.


  5. Somehow i imagine poetry to be a bit like cooking… to simmer it down to a concentrated fist of a sauce.

    The reward of patience! All will be fine- just wait & it’ll make sense 🙂
