nothing to see here

violently vomitting
my muse on the sidewalk
i poked and prodded
it with the
toe of my boot
to see if i
could at least
get a gasp
but alas
all i can offer
is the view
from the end of
my driveway, west...

beautiful isn't it?

Breathtakingly beautiful! Go easy on the Muse, though. You're gonna hurt it poking it like that. :)

It is a wonderful view to see every day.

All the components for a great photo - mountain, sky, clouds, barn, fence, autumn color ..... Lovely. (The muse is shy about being the object of amusement. :-)

I have to admit, I've had a tough time getting my blogging muse back lately too.

But seriously Brian, even on a inspirationless day, your poems/prose still rock!

Great pic, I'm so jealous. We only have rolling hills in these parts.

Seriously!?!?! That's your view? I'd have a hard time ever getting past the end of the driveway. It's stunning.
Cheers, jj

Susan Deborah said...

Beautiful indeed! The image of vomitting has been transformed into something which is aesthetically pleasing. Oh, the power of art!

Joy always,
Susan

Its breathtakingly beautiful!! Wish the muse had at least a gasp left though to give you.

Dianne said...

oh my gosh, I can smell it from here.
It isn't dead, so don't worry, heck no!
We won't call 911 if you don't post, but lay off of that hard stuff, your body can't take a muse hang over. Ha!

nice view,
as great as mine yesterday?!
