Was it for nought you kissed
Behind a veil of murky cloud
A beauty rare
Rendezvous or moonlight tryst
Mars and Venus
Such an unlikely pair
Twill be a time to wait
For love to come this way again
O may the skies then your love declare
ddversepoets.com. Writing with a muse.
I know Mars and Venus met on July 13, and it is said they kissed (A view that close only from earth’s perspective) and will not be that close again until 2024. It was cloudy that evening, blocking our view.
I chose to try one of the nine muses, Urania (astronomy). I find it “amusing’ it worked out better than I expected.
For this challenge, I would like you to choose your muse. You can do this in any one of the following ways:
- Write a poem invoking the Muse, and following in the long-established classical tradition.
- Choose one of the nine Classical Muses and write a poem with her particular area of influence in mind (for example, choose Caliope and write a comedic poem)
- Write a poem inspired by your own personal muse, whether that be an individual, a place, or anything else which fires your creativity. You can refer to your muse either directly or indirectly, but some form of reference to your muse as a source of inspiration should be included.
