Lures

All things can tempt me, but I’ll not stray long from poetry. Desire to write is strong. The lure of pie may shoo my muse away, but soon new themes my poems will convey. A brand-new movie’s on, a mystery. When it concludes, I’ll write distraction-free. I’m writing, but my Clark* book waits close-by. Good choices for my sweet time often vie. Great plots and pie provide no exercise! To walk before I write more lines seems wise. *Mary Higgins Clark (December 1927-January 2020) author of GREAT suspense novels Date: February 22, 2020 Contest Title: All Things Can Tempt Me Placed 7th Sponsor: Beth Evans March 9, 2020, entered in the Strand Choice A Contest

Janice, a little late for me to wish you 'happy pi day' but it sounds like you probably didn't do too much writing that day, haha! Loved your musings about muses! ~ John
