I'VE NEVER SEEN

 

 

I’VE NEVER SEEN 

 

I wonder what mustard is keen about

and why’s there no rabbit in Sainsburys

 I've never seen a shadow of doubt

and I don't know how fair fair is

    Oh lol, good writes and pic M. You still trying to get out of that Fire Exit? It must be kept closed at all times. Doh!

    • Michael Edwards

      Do not use in case of fire'
      Do not use what?
      where is the case?
      Why would you want to use it?
      Is there enough room in the case anyway?

        By the time we've worked all that out, we shall have perished in the fire!

        That kind of stuff is not easy to write... do you save up these gems ? Really impressive !

          I keep an 'Ideas' folder in my documents and - yes - I stick ideas in it as they come to me. Every so often I invade it often marrying ideas, phrases lines etc together .Here's a few random lines currently sitting there which I will use sometime:

          The only sounds
          the distant noise of city life
          a stranger here
          Where no one fits the paradigm
          A bud in a forest of trees
          That slowly succumbs to

            I kinda guessed you would. I think a lot of us do similar things. I have a folder full of ideas which didn\'t quite work and periodically i will sift through them and often knock one into shape or rob it of its vitals for another piece. Yesterdays piece came from an overheard \'across the room stood a piano waiting to be played\'. A great line on it\'s own.

            I've seen that shadow of doubt
            On a sunny day it follows me about
            I turned and gave it a stare
            It didn't do nothing, just led there
            Nice one Micheal,, Bill

              Great Bill. I'm enjoying the exchanges for this posting.

              You marry ideas and thoughts so well Michael - - I too have great piles of notes and scribbled phrases in more than a few folders but am in awe of what your mind can put together my friend.

              • Michael Edwards

                Then it's a case of mutual admiration dear Fay for I am also in awe of the way you weave the language.

                Wise words Michael asking questions for which we may never know the answer. Why?

                  Thanks Andy - done in pencil - I set this as the weekly challenge for our local art group.
