    A Muse's Delusions

    I live in a world 
               of delusions
                        all my own,
                                 a world
              where nothing
    is set in stone,

     

    The color of night
                        changes
                            with the day,
                         in my world
                of delusions
    I think I’ll stay,

     

    The muses are here
                          my sisters 
                                   all eight,
                                             yet,
                          only the chosen 
    can pass through the gate,

     

    To step in my mind;
                            a muses
                                      delusions,
                          leaving behind
           the real worlds
    confusions,

     

    There are flowers
                      with colors
                                   no human eyes have seen,
                               and the trees 
                          all stand
     with a languorous lean,

     

    Shades of the sun 
                        are never
                                 the same,
                                         I’ll stay
                                in this world
    where my delusions are tame

     

    They are colorful 
                      and fun 
                             and serendipitous
                                            If you want 
                                 you can stay
    and come and sit with us,

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
