The Poet and the Muse

The darkest hue
when the clouds are abalone,
are as whispers
in-between lips, they collide
with the taste of richer roasts
and dreamsβ€”such that
enslave me in body, in poem and ink.
January or June,
I find that he’s muse, one and only.

    To enrich like that..in only 44 words…….just so wonderful, and like a painting, or piece of music, it just seems wonderful again and again. ‘enslave me in body, in poem and ink.’ of course the lines should not be extracted, as all work best altogether,,,,,but what a line

    I know I shall get more when I read this poem tomorrow, and more again the day after. Beautiful.
