Muse for Monday

ABC MagnetsThe building blocks of language… letters. The alphabet is the beginning of recording our thoughts and what we have to say. Take a look at what Mantra did with the alphabet. This is her version of the ABCs.


Alone you will never be with me here

Because you are the very best friend

Confidante, companion, all ’round good egg.

Deep within your soul is happiness,

Even when you wear a frowning sneer.

From dawn ’til dusk, you shine light,

Grabbing the world to give it a shake.

Heart so big, it keeps safe all held dear,

In the midst of temper-tossed seas.

Joy lights your eyes with firework bursts,

Keeping a twinkle e’en when in a snit.

Laughter is genuine and delightful to hear,

Making me giggle or just shake my head.

Nightfall brings visions of hand-in-hand strolls

On a boardwalk, which has gotten lost.

Perhaps it’s okay, we can’t get there from here.

Quietly nestled, paused in each other’s arms.

Resting together, in wondrous repose.

Sleeping soundly to wake beside you at dawn,

The sunrise chasing out nightmarish fear.

Under a cloudless sky, we stop to smell

Violets and roses, clumped sweetly by our path.

Wet with dew and shimmering with beams,

Xylem supporting such delicate dreams.

You make me laugh and think ’til I’m totally

Zapped, and say… “I love you, truly.”



Merry Monday from me, M3 and the mischievous Mantra.

  1. Nice Red! 🙂

  2. What a novel idea. I enjoyed that.

  3. Impish or not it is very clever and well written! 🙂

    God Bless!


    • Glad you liked it, Pren. This was one I had no idea where it was going. I did not even notice the alphabet until F.

  4. Well done. Love this style, especially when they work.
    You started off the lines in order at first and didn’t even notice?

    • Yes. This is one of the “cute” things which is so intrinsically NOT me. My poetry has taken a sweeping left turn recently into subjects and rhyme patterns which are not my forte. Until a few months ago, you would have had to pay me really good money to get a half-hearted (pun completely intended) attempt at a love poem. These days, I am scribbling them on everything.

      Heaven knows the poem I wrote about the old man in the mirror was completely foreign. I would claim I had been abducted, but I do not even think aliens really explain that one.

  5. Great one! I bet the X was the hardest!

    • Not as hard as you would think. I just had to spell it correctly…I really like a second Y in it.

  6. I like it a very positive feel to it, something we all need. Great job!!!

    • Thank you, dear Raven! Glad to see you tonight, and to warm your heart! Have a wonderful morning!

  7. Xylem? I usually learn a new word or two when I come to visit. Clever piece, though.

  8. Excellent , Red ! You know your poetic alphabet! I might have used “xylophones ring in delicate dreams”…haha! .~R

  9. Oh what positivity! Love the concept and the message of love. Can you bottle the person being described and ship him to me?
