So you can just imagine the depth of my delight when I found out that the talented Tom Atkins of The Creativity Blog chose to draw upon my site and photo as artistic stimulation for his most recent composition.
It's not the woman that passes you each morning
with her perfect face or shining black hair
that flows wildly in the winter wind.
It's not the children who fill your life
with smiles and laughter and joy,
life spilling from every pore.
It's not the garden beside your doorstep
with it's bright flowers and winding vines
and never ending cycle of life and death and life again.
It's not the mountains that surround you
with their towering peaks and secret paths
that urge you ever upwards to the sky.
It's not the sunrise, or the harvest moon,
nor the music - smokey blues or lilting celtic harp;
not the ocean or even the promise of love.
No, for all their glory and beauty
are mere reflections of the true muse:
the God who created them all.

Thank you, dear Tom! Because of you, the Photographer's Muse can now call hereself a Poet's Muse as well. Woohoo!
Now, all that remains is for the loony moomy to be painted and I can finally change my title to All-Around Muse.
