By Charles Robert Lindholm 

Quietly he sits
in the silence of the night
weaving words inside his head
by the flickering candlelight

His muse has shown him everything
in the grand design
so he weaves his words with subtlety,
with cadence, rhythm and rhyme

And in the Final Tapestry
the world can clearly see
the messages he intended
for everyone to see

But hiding between the lines
is a message meant for me
whispered words and longings
of how things ought to be

And in my dreams he comes to me,
with his words, he holds me tight
as we fly away in ecstasy
in the Backside of the Night

    1. Thanks so much Davy! Eludes You? The Appeal? What it is? Unable to be up then? LOL! The wee small hours of the night 3-6 a.m. when the rest of the world is fast asleep and the silence let’s You listen to Your Muse. I love it. Some of the best things I’ve done have come then. When do You write, then?

      1. I am first thing in the morning Charles. I take my muse walking. Anything after 9pm and my mind is dead. By then it has been running at 100mph for about 15 hours lol. Have a great and blessed weekend my friend.
