Ars Poetica

I wait for my muse

to whisper

truth in every color

in form of stanzas


I record the words

honey-golden or corpse-gray

or somewhere bittersweet

in between


Then my pen lies

dormant, waiting

for my muse

to speak again.


This is an original poem I wrote.


Ars Poetica by definition is basically a poem about the art of poetry. The poem above is my take. Ars Poetica is a great idea to pursue if you are experiencing writer’s block, or simply if you are passionate about poetry.
