I’ve not told you before

but here is the score

it’s to do with my guts

I’m allergic to nuts

a fact I hid well

before leaving my shell.

    I wish I was allergic to nuts, if there are peanuts in the house they are not there for long!


    • Michael Edwards

      I'm the same - in fact any type of nuts are unsafe when
      I'm around.

          A real cracker!

          Love that sculpture too.

          • Michael Edwards

            Thanks dusk - I love doing these little sculptures - I make them out of found wood which I mould and assemble as my fancy takes me. I love the textures and establishing form - will post a few more over the coming week.

            • dusk arising

              A few months back when i was is hospital i wrote about an old bench I sat on outside on a balcony. Its hardwood armrests were aged and deeply hollowed into the grain. It inspired me to write thinking about all those who had sat there before me and those who would follow. The nature of wood has a soul which communicates with us.

              Liked your "nutty" bit of humor. Nut allergies are serious business. Know someone who has suffered greatly with the problem.My personal problem is "shell"fish. You just have to have the "guts" to face it. So far the fish are ahead 4 nil. -Phil A.
