The Wellies and the Muse

Photo c/o the Internet (boots no longer available at site listed - bummer)

To my Facebook Friends who are a better Thesaurus than any printed tome. Thank you!









A dark and stormy night

Turned day and wellies were called

By puddles and mud songs


Galoshes were goshes lashed

Together but not quite, well,

Wellies with no buckles


And all that gum that stuck

To boots, not shoes, were sticky,

Tacky gumboots, icky.


And then there were streams

And fish that played in nets

Pulled by her in her waders


Trying to wade through the

Thesaurus to find the right term

To use for dismantling a logjam


In a stream of writing that seemingly dried

But for a trickle, not enough to release the muse

Until she found her Wellies to wear


And yank that logjam open

Carefully, gracefully

So the Muse can once again swim. Yay!
