Mistress of Inspiration – Author Hugh Dysart


Poppies and black roses blanket her bed,

in thistles and thorns

Poppies and black roses scar her veins,

in rhyme and resignation


Minds bend over time, thought melts,

flowing over naked, white paper,

depositing the silt of sages

Heavy words fall to the bottom

Pathetic poets drag the lake,

for a Mistress of Inspiration


Hope fades over time, high tides,

drown sand castle children,

in plastic pails and blue skies

Mediocrity on the rocks

Ribbons around Oak trees,

another fatality gone wrong


Life crawls over time, bloody knees,

leave red clues in the cotton,

for the hounds to track

Slaves to her whip and pendulum

Pathetic poets kneel and obey,

the Mistress of Inspiration


Poppies and black roses adorn her halls,

in cobwebs and curses

Poppies and black roses speak her name,

in wisdom and pearls
