Bright sparks of thought
Electricity vibrating my soul
The words, they come, they spill
Soaking wet words on dry pages

A pause that stretches
Thoughts that scatter like startled birds
Inspiration fled, soaring out of mind, out of reach
Parched dry words in tear-stained lines

Frantic, I scan frantically
Searching, aching for one more glimpse of Her
My Passion, My Divine, My Muse
That the fount of expression again flows red

By the shelves I glimpse her
Lingering gently among books inspired
I reach, I grasp, I finally seize
She gazes upon me plaintively

One last spark, understanding at last
My mistake to think that I can take
I relax, I release, I finally depart
My Muse unable to be forced

Despondant, I turn away
When I feel the air stir behind me
She leaps, She spins, She dances
Muse, now free to Inspire
