Your Muse Calls: A Poem

In a bit of a divergence from my customary marketing and publishing focus, here’s a poem I hope will inspire you:

your muse calls to you

across a great, rocky chasm

you look down

feel queasy

look across

but see no bridge


your muse calls

your heart stirs


pulls you


without thinking

you step forward

into thin air

and grow wings
