The Mystery of You
 The Mystery of You 
Do falling stars have strength to grant a dream
to lonely poets who have lost their way?
What quilting could be woven with no seam
to cover naked bodies as they lay?
What fragrant scent enraptures lonely minds
and captures in its bond passionís desire?
Will thoughtful words become the tie that binds
the honest oaths to love we both aspire?
The sound of wishful silence in your tear
is music to my soul that breathes you in.
To quiet thoughts from you I now draw near,
will truthful words again drive love within?
What kind of dreamerís maze must I walk through -
to be inside the mystery of you?

Author's Notes:
An English sonnet written in iambic pentameter regarding the poet's fantasy about his Muse. The poet refers to himself in the first person singular "I" while the Muse is referred to in the second person singular "you".  The Muse and her poet are referred to in the third person plural as "they" on a couple of occasions as participants in rhetorical questions.

I've noticed the ladies eat this stuff up. Know your audience, as they say. The last line was great. The rest.....well pretentious meanderings come to mind...Yeah, I know....but I couldn't resist the title. :o)...len

As all of your work I found this really enjoyable but this line just made the poem for me

"The sound of wishful silence of your tear
is music to the soul that breathes you in."

Tristan, you've chosen a handful of delightful mysteries to describe the wonders of your muse...falling stars that grant wishes, the sound of  wishful silence in her tears, a lingering fragrance that stirs a lonely mind...and my favorite...quilting woven without a seam.  who has the answer to these mysteries? ...they nest in the intimate chambers of your muse...


loved every line!

Ahhh, that elusive muse mustering the sonnet from the poet as no other can.  Nice work again with sonnet.  I enjoyed this very much.  I especially loved those two opening lines.  Thank you.  ~Pamela
