Michael Edwards






Lanes and passages

Byways courtyards and alleys

Hidden labyrinths


Verbal directions

Impossible attainment

Resigned abashment


  • dusk arising

    This reads as one might describe my mentality whilst playing monopoly. What use a 'get out of jail free' card when your waterworks are throwing a double six?

    Love the dexterity of vocabulary.

    A fine write and pic M.
    Re Monopoly: It's got silly now. There are skyscrapers in some versions of it. If anyone else lands on them, they've had it - the Rent is a fortune!
    You know Mon O. Polly Berles? (Mon = Monica?).

    The mind can get so lost until you resign to your own normality.

      Some say I'm not normal - lol - thanks Andy.


      Good Tuesday UNCLE MIKE - Brian here ! I always thought skateboards were a Death Wish especially Skate Board Parks - they keep Angela in a Job.

        The last thing Momma Penguin wants is to end up in A&E at the present time. Thanks Brian.

        You are sir.. such an eloquent gent..

        • Michael Edwards

          You flatter me dear friend.

          • Neville

            Nah, tis true I tell ya..

          • Fay Slimm.

            Being a stranger is no easy task when asking locals the directions to wherever - arms and hands flying with dialogue to match so no wonder we resign in total abashment to finding our way on our own.......... hope this was near to the subject intended in the title.......... great write.

            • Michael Edwards

              Spot on Fay although my primary thought when I started to pen this was a play with the language.

            • myself and me

              I guess the phone is out of battery or lost GPS signal.

              • Michael Edwards

                Mines okay but my wife dropped hers down the loo - She won't be keeping it in her back pocket in the future - in the meantime she's lost and trying to sort out a replacement.
