Michael Edwards





It really is a strange affair

for though it’s true that I am here

it’s also said I’m not all there.

    • Michael Edwards

      Could be - I'm meditating.

      • Neville

        it is a feature of my every day, twice in fact.. sometimes tho very rarely more..

      • Goldfinch60

        Within ourselves some parts are too involved with other images to be present.

        Oh lol good write and pic M.
        You got any gold, frankincense, or myrrh? I shall need some soon. Depends if I'm a wise man! (or a King of Orient).

        • Michael Edwards

          I asked for myrrh for Christmas but never got it - it's not stocked by Sainsburys.

          • orchidee

            I looked for it in those 'different' shops. Holland & Barrett have potions, but said they had no myrrh. Can I have rosewood, acacia, or summat else? You got gold? Chance would be a fine thing?

            Reality is but an illusion.

          • orchidee

            Cooeee, me evening's gone now. How was yours? Off to bed.... 'Who wants to be a Millionaire' on telly sends me to sleep, with all the dithering, adverts, and procrasti-wotsit - procrastination in it!

          • orchidee

            You done that meditating Neville?!

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            Thanks UNCLE MIKE : Love the trio of FISH. Loved the ODE : It rang a (distant) BELL : None of us are ever omnipresent : ALL THERE !
            Peace & Love : ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

            Are any of us.....
            But I believe, it's that imbalance that individualizes our actions.
            Little said or done in either art form, requiring such lengthy responses.

            • Michael Edwards

              Yes I'm a bit of a minimalist I guess - thanks Suresh - not around at the moment so my responses and a bit far and few between.
