My Muse Once Sleeping is Awake

I tarried into fields of grim,
silent stars fallen into dim-
Now my passion I shan’t forsake…
                    my MUSE once sleeping is AWAKE. 

Echoes of hands starved and broken,
through muted syllables spoken. 
Maybe a pause was a mistake…
       my MUSE once sleeping is AWAKE.

Icy tears wept with snow-capped pines,
flawed fingers healed; poetry shines.
My safe metaphors shall not break…
                   my MUSE once sleeping is AWAKE. 

Shadowed writing shaded by hope,
inspiration, a way to cope- 
My frail heart healed for heaven's sake…
       my MUSE once sleeping is AWAKE.

I especially love the final stanza LuLoo, I can relate with my writing starting during such a stressful time when my hubby had cancer surgery. Many congrats on your win:-) hugs Jan xx
