---"are you the poet or the muse?"
---"i'm a little bit of both"
---"well, the world can always use a poet but needs a lot more muses."
A poet in San Fransisco made this point and i ponder MY answer- am i a poet or a muse? What are you?
.....and she looks up and sees the sky and she is amused and laughs, goes home, and writes a poem.
.....laughter. The poet offers anecdotes to life's trials, errors, loves, death, etc which the muse inspires. The poet in turn inspires the audience. and so, a circle begins; interdependency entwines both the poet and the muse.
