Return Of The Muse

Bluebells-in-Wild-Boar-Wood-248x148_c

When movement disturbs the stagnation
of Miss Haversham’s banquet room
dust motes float and briefly catch the light
before sinking back to invisibility

In the banquet room of my brain
an unexpected breeze flows
and I reach for the miriad motes
that I may preserve them forever
