Searching for my muse

Deprived of my wings at birth,
May be the angels
were afraid, that
like Ikerus,
I shall attempt
to touch the sun,
and get burnt.

But I bargained
to set my
mind free,
soared high
and gained the
whole universe,
Imagination unbridled.

From unseen depths
of the ocean,
To places even
gods fear to tread,
I roam,
in search of
my elusive muse.

Alas, it’s a journey futile,
Travelogue continues,
Search goes on,
Certain that
once destination arrived,
the reward of discovery
shall silence my mind.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

      1. From Intimations of Immortality (I studied it at high school and had to learn a lot of it by heart)

        Whither is fled the visionary gleam?
        Where is it now, the glory and the dream?

        Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
        The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
        Hath had elsewhere its setting,
        And cometh from afar:
        Not in entire forgetfulness,
        And not in utter nakedness,
        But trailing clouds of glory do we come
        From God, who is our home:
        Heaven lies about us in our infancy!

      2. I won’t say that I am a fan. English not being my mother tongue and not being my field of study, was always a second language to me. However “I wonder lonely as a cloud”, Keats’ “A thing of beauty is a joy for ever” and a few others (eg. Ozymandias of Egypt and The Miller of the Dee etc) always stayed with me.


  1. Beautiful! But we don’t want you to find your Muse, for don’t want your creative mind to go silent upon arriving at the destination! Do we?
