Monday’s Muse: A Poem About Hemingway

Things are rather busy here today so I’m just going to drop this here and run. Today’s poem took shape because I had just glanced over at a book on my shelf and wondered who the author’s muse could have been. Voilรก! A poem was born.

Happy Monday everyone.

Hemingwayโ€™s Muse

By Jessica Scott

 

 

I wonder if Hemingway knew his Muse.

Did he really know how he came to be inspired to write at all?

Was it an embrace,

A tap on the shoulder,

A soft caress?

He was born with the glorious, burdensome gift of talent-

But Prometheus gave him the fire.

Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they arenโ€™t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
