If you are lucky enough
To be woken by your muse
In the middle of the night

It is your opportunity
To create your finest work.

awake in the middle of the night and that is when my muse strikes. She walks into my brain and says: "Hey, what's up?"
Most times, I don't know and she has to tell me. LoL
Nice quote. I may be using it sometime, [I promise I will credit you.] ~ Geez.

Announcing the new chatroom! I will be hosting a chatroom on Saturday nights
from 8pm until 9pm [EST] this coming Saturday. Stop in and
shoot the breeze with the Geez. Our Chatroom is open 24/7

You are so sweet, she really does visit around 4 am not always but when she does I have learnt to get up and jot it down. Of course depending on how deep I'm asleep. Feel free to use this anytime you wish my dear friend.

Thank you...Teddy

Hi, Teddy!
Another wonderful quote! This is the way poetry works!
Thank you!

We are all lucky enough to experience the muse, mine was missing for quite some time once and I really missed her, although I was less tired. Try one I bet you would create something truly wonderful.

Thank you...Teddy

my muse always sneaks up on e when I am just about to fall asleep . That is when I say I will remember this in the morning lol wellll guess what I never do. I know it is sai one should keep a writing tablet by the bedside ahhh but really does anyone have the energy to roll over and start writing


check out our chat room open to all 24/7

I've lost a lot of material, because I was just too tired to get up and write it down, I guess you have a great point though, keeping some sort of pen or writing object close by could be a great option. Always a pleasure to hear your thoughts.

Thank you...Teddy

But the issue for me is convincing my parents to let me up so I can write down what the Muse is whispering before it vanishes forever. I love how you wrote this poem; somehow, it feels like an invitation.

"To reveal art and conceal the artist is art's true aim." Oscar Wilde

lol that's also an obstacle, good point. I would keep a small flash light, pen and paper close by, this is an invitation, try one they are really fun. X

Thank you...Teddy

Grab a pen and write that dream!
Very good Teddy and if it were mine I would change it's to it is.
You amaze me!

Please comment anywhere anytime.

I agree with that completely and have edited, I was thinking of it but I just needed the nudge, it's just that little bit more elegant now. always a pleasure Sir.

Thank you...Teddy
