The Seductive Muse

The Seductive Muse

On you I muse through the night….

 

The passing scenes of time and tide

Of which past ‘am presently turning

Abstracted solely in future less aside

As I progress so soberly from within

 

On sacred seduction I strum this thirst

As on you I’d muse through the night

That at the crack of new dawn like mist

I’d transit unto you in gradient of light

 

You did seduce me Oh dear aesthetics!

Like bird ensnared at its very first flight

With scores of scrolls and ink in kinetics

So ‘am consigned to you till the twilight!

 

You’ve so seduced me Seductive Muse

And here bemused even in the daytime

I’ve become a poet of unparalleled poise!

In this relished love of rhythmic entwine

    Like the rhetorical Psalmist … I hope you remember him on your bed …

  2. @josephoguche Joseph Joseph how many times did I call you. You are charged with poetic myopism. On this account, check up “poetaster” for your penance; after which you read Psalm 62, which inspired the poet. Your scabrous ellipses (….) are of course scandalous!

  3. Jo (@josephoguche)

    @ostar If so, may I passionately allude to your theological ignorance. V6 of that same chapter is what I am making a case of. The Psalmist, in the entire scriptural piece, expressed his desire and longing for God. And having being inspired by that Psalm to write your poem, I was hoping that you also will ‘remember Him’ – desire God. That’s my point.

  4. @josephoguche be humble and learn. Aesthetics here is God.

    @ostar :) Be objective and get enlightened … Reason informs faith!

    Lovely poem. Well done, Ostar. $ß.

  9. @topazo thanks man.
    Could you please see the labels or tags of this poem?

  10. @sibbylwhyte welcome dear lady.
    Has he now seen the tags? Juxtaposed utterances with my profile?
    Can someone let him know I donated 2k points to this great and noble
    NS, and shared the rest to start afresh; should the case be there’s a
    Shoulder-shoulder comparison in terms of points.

    What you’ve come to is a Citadel of Knowledge. I learn here too.

  12. Hehehe!
    The tags of the poem are arts, aesthetics, love of arts, psalm 62, God, poetry. They are visible.

    *** 25000 pints pls, not 2000 @admin
