In days long gone my muse was fluent,
spilling from the heart, special thoughts and rhymes.
Poetic whispers overflowed with emotion,
Passionate, thoughtful, with hope and surprise.

Chaotic words from the heart in my chest,
Frenzied and messy, hectic at best
In a state of confusion, mixed-up and muddled
tumultuous thoughts, unruly and cluttered.

Work, priorities, family, grandchildren,
an elderly parent, diminished depth,
the words were still there, but in disarray
building up, congested, no order, a mess!

Time took its toll, life kept creeping
into the time I spent on an inkling
I begged her to stay, but my muse flew away -
Ahhh, she could see there was no time to play.

Hobbies on hold, until there was time
to make sense of it all, to tame my thoughts.
The maze in my head was wild and erratic,
expressions of desire trapped within.

Words would come every now and then
Into my head they’d fly - to my heart, my pen.
Strewn on the page they were random and tangled -
they spilled with no order, disorganized, mangled!

In the midst of madness, this higgledy-piggledy -
a thesaurus becomes methodic, logical.
The hurt is mending, some order returns,
a crutch for my muse, until she creates on her own.

Dear Daisy,  You always did  and always will write directly from your heart and I found
that heart to be made from the finest qualities offered.  I not only enjoyed your work
here but all the great times we shared together.  I am so happy to read your thoughts
again and the time and inspiration available to you now.  This takes me back to that time
when I could roll out poems like an assembly line and now I struggle and trash most of
what I do write which is not often.   Your words and friendship will always have a very
special place in my heart. I really enjoyed this because it rings a bell in me.

Hey Weave  :poet
I think my head (and my heart) just swelled a bit.  Being able to express the chaos in my head and have somebody else "get it" is quite an accomplishment ... many thanks, my friend!  I remember when you were writing like crazy, and everything was so good that I didn't want it to stop.  You still have it in you Weave, because I know your heart has a lot more to say!

Thanks B ... it does feel good to write again.   For the first time in a very long time I'm feeling charged up and can't wait to get online to be here again.  I have another work in progress, and it's a structured one ... I'll post when I get the flow to actually "flow"
