I accidentally birthed a muse today

I have succumbed to the heat of day and now hallucinate of other worldly wonders
My body rests sideways on the white sand dune I call my bed… exhausted,
waiting to commence the summoning ritual of my muse
But the creature would not splurge in my head
My vision then wandered far and wide across the desert;
the wind, dry and dusty failing to cool down my spirit
-LASKO, it’s called. I should opt for another brand-
To my left, a gift…
an overbearing cactus teddy bear, three feet tall
It’s deep plastic umber eyes glaring at me insistently
once soft strands of fake fur had become prickly needles
aiding the heat energy’s rampage to annoy me
Right beside it, a small oasis crystal altar where my prayers gather
carefully caught by the statue of Anael, the angel of love embracing a woman
passed then, to a wind fairy with a small child cradled within a flower;
the dream catcher catching more than just my nightmares… like dust;
a box of sandalwood incense marks the edge of the haven
Drowsy,
my eyes now travel past the mountains of lonely sand into the hallway
where I catch the reflection of the gates of sky on the Sun & Moon Mirror

My palm, already sweaty, holding pen to paper…
I realized the muse had been born, already come and then gone

I’m your typical young woman who delves in all things artistic… and conventional. Writing is a hobbie—and a preferred one at that. I love music as much as I love reading. Its like breathing. I don’t like false and pretentious people, I’m not quick to anger and I consider myself a dreamer. That’s me in a nutshell, I guess.
