Distant Drums

11th Jan 2022

Prompt for The Sunday Muse: 

This is my first time

Distant Drums

The beat of distant drums 

stirs the silent spirit, 

 wakes the foggy mind, drunk with

 meandering in dark woods.

Now, they say,

come now, we are ready.


  1. I really like the mystical feeling / message in your poem!! Wishing you a Happy 2022 from Bend Oregon.

  2. He looks familiar. James Dean?

  3. I love the spirit and rejuvenation this holds Marian aka Grams! A wonderful poem and I am delighted you joined us at the Muse this week. I apologize for taking so long to come by. I had a limb the size of a tree land on my home and it has been a wacky week. Have a good week and Happy New Year!

    1. Oh my goodness, what a week for you. Hey, thanks for your encouraging comment. I might post next week on the Muse. Depends if I get any time. This weekend is very busy - got a grandson turning 18, so me and hubby and many family members are off to celebrate with him xxx

  4. The call of the distant is hard to resist.

  5. Gram, drums do set the tone, don't they.
