    one day soon
    i'm gonna get myself
    a muse...
    tall, strong, fearless
    with a sense of humor
    a chocolate, thick
    clean-cut brotha
    fine as all get up
    with a tatoo
    or two...
    long eyelashes
    clean, white smile
    i'll stare at him as
    i contemplate life

    he'll sit still;
    Buddha-like
    but with a six-pack
    full of possibilities :wink:

    we'll discuss poetry and life
    love, and poems
    we'll laugh and sigh
    and after a few
    glasses of wine
    he'll explain to me
    the source of
    'life' in a poem

    and how it's like
    a pool with many
    brightly colored fish
    he'll tell me
    to lay on my side
    and dip my (writing) hand
    into the cool water
    and wait...
    - - he'll tell me that
    i shouldn't get lost
    in the colors and movements
    but that i should
    just wait until something
    nibbles at my finger tips

    so true this suggestion
    of his would be
    a clearer understanding
    conveyed through him
    about poetry
    and that if a poem is
    to stay alive it too has
    to breathe
    in a pool of ink

    ........ fountain of words
    ............ great lake of a blank page

    ... one day soon
    i'm gonna get me a muse
    so that i can always
    swim in a pool of thoughts
    and have him
    to thank
    for it

    WHATTT!
    n2, u keep bangin heads in the lounge! this
    "freestyle" has a style that freely expresses
    the talents and conciousness of the poet that wrote it.
    when u get the muse, holla at ya folks.
