Musings from (or of) a Muse

I try to keep her grounded
But her avian superpowers
     Mental flapping and fluttering
Resist the attempt

She dreams of spreading her wings
She wants to soar

The Lady of Laughter

Free Lit Magazine is very special to me.  It was the first publication that published something I had written.  It was back in April 2015, and the piece was Idus Martiae (or, Ides of March, – bet you can’t guess what it was about? 🙂 If you want to read it, follow this link here).  And so I try to submit something to them whenever I can.  Which reminds me, their next theme, for any budding writers and artists out there is, The Truth or Dare Issue and the deadline is mid-January, so go check it out!

Back to their current issue, I’m exceedingly excited to announce I have another piece gracing their wonderful pages…It’s called The Lady of Laughter, (or, The Personification of Comedy) and it takes a little look at one of the nine muses from Greek mythology, Thaleia, the muse of comedy.  If you have a moment, you can find the issue it is in here, alongside many other great pieces inspired by the theme of “humour”.

Don’t forget to let me know if you do have a read – I would love to know what you think. 🙂
