Michael Edwards




A dreamer he

will no more be

he dived in the pond to capture the moon

let’s hope they retrieve his body soon.

    I love this for lots of different reasons. It reminds me of the protaginist in my book and of the dichotomy of dreaming.

    • Michael Edwards

      Only people who rise from slumber ever dream.

      Whatever that means 😪

      He will be with the moon that he captured.

      A fine write and pic M. Miss Berles dived in?!

      • Michael Edwards

        She did straight into a hole in the Emmental

          I don\'t like Emmental cheese. I only eat the holes in it. (I quite like it really - bit twangy). Do you eat the holes in Polo mints or doughnuts?

                Hauntingly tragic but important and inspiring nonetheless. I'm forever a fan of your ability to conjure emotion with so few words. It's good to be back and see poems such as these, especially from you.

                  You are so kind - I really do appreciate your encouragement. Thanks Aislinn

                  hahahahaha! He was stupid if you ask me (no one did). Love the "looser and more fluid"...........
