Let My Muse Lead

This morning,
I let my muse lead me
out of myself and into
the flow of life,
a flow I often house
in an effort
to keep pace
with my dreams
and to produce
what I give
to the world.

The muse reminds me
that my art is with me
and goes where I go.

She replaces
urgency with eagerness,
giving the world
back to me
as my own.

I take this gift
along with me
knowing another delight
awaits me when
I open it tonight
to reveal the beauty
that comes
from one day
lived well.
