Recently I have come to know my muse
in the sounds that trigger moments
dear to my inner peace.
If a certain melody can remind me of a time
a life moment when chance discovery
brought me to a newer place,
if when inside that traveling caravan,
I was then able to redefine what it was
that dragged my soul across rough landscape,
well then I might be better off knowing music
could take me to a different place.
If I listen to the same melody all the time,
I am sure I won’t write the same words,
yet, I might experience similar emotion
while trying to figure out just why I do feel the way I do.
Sounds, words, that certain melody
might always bring me home,
to that place where I want to remain.
