Invocation for Nine Muses

I shall not conjure you
into a summer’s day
nor to a winter’s night

for you are chance and timing
the missing puzzle shape
to fit wholeness in my life

essential as a fiddle
for bluegrass in a barn

or yeast to flour
to blossom warmth
and leavening for rise

Bonnie Marshall

Artwork by Ilya Volykhine now carries a paperback edition of a collection of my poetry entitled, The Taste of Bees in Honey.  Should you buy this book, please tell me so that I may thank you. Even if not, know that I greatly appreciate my readers and value their comments.
