A Muse’s Lullaby, a poem for Nicki Aycox by Tracy Diane Miller

I tried last night to sleep
But my Muse called out to my brain
Like the sweet whispers of a lullaby
So glorious in its refrain

I thought about the music
A wave in the still of night
Echoes in the darkness
Bathing my room in light

Then a song to welcome me
And more to end my gloom
Happy was my heart
As I listen
To Nicki Aycox’s
Red Velvet Room
