Michael Edwards




...manifest as time allows

true love obtained at auction

sits high upon the chattering boughs

and toast is not an option...


  • L. B. Mek

    I'm as lost as Glenit's feet with this one Michael,
    a questioning of archaic marriage traditions? maybe a thought on the way we quantify/qualify our valuation of love?
    these are the moments I regret not eating more Salmon as a child, lol

    • Lorna

      Me too........ not quite sure....... but Glenit will need his feet for Goldie's Trad Jazz............ Fay's "bidding for love" makes sense........

      • Michael Edwards

        I'm also lost - well actually I was never found in the first place - just a bit of nonesense.

      • Fay Slimm.

        Bidding on love can be filled with unseen appendages if time allows - -- ha -- best to get out when you can eh Mike.......... super read and one to ponder on too.

        • Michael Edwards

          Lines from the odds and sods box put randomley together - just for fun and to see what others say - Glenit likes it.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          Good Friday - Uncle MIKE ~ Brian here ! Love the GLENIT ! We all nee to find our feet in these perilouis times !
          Enigmatic ODE ! In my experience *LOVE* always was an Auction. The Girls bid wih coquettishness (good word for a Friday !) and I bid with my *Elvis Looks* and fluid footwork ! Sometimes (but not often) I was the highest bidder ! Thanks for sharng ! CONFUSUS He say ~ Man with Shiney Shoes ~ outbids Man with Shiney Nose !

          Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
          Love Angela - Brian & Smokey !!!

            I bid with my Buddy holly looks and chattering bowels = what a catch I got. And I've never lost my feet let alone my head.

            A cryptic write M.
            I was gonna do 'The church cat crept into the crypt and ......'- woof! Fido says no. lol. Slight link to 'cryptic' there.
            Fido says the ending is 'had a kip'.

          • orchidee

            And.... isn't it annoying, those folk who start sentences with 'and' too often?
            And another thing...... lol.

            • Michael Edwards

              ... and I do agree with you Orchi.

              • orchidee

                I even came across sentences starting 'And,....' Notice the comma after 'and'. Is this wasting commas? Is Miss Berles outraged? She got many commas left?

                What have you got against toast!?

                • Michael Edwards

                  Crumbs in the bed.

                    Fair point. Bad toast. Nasty toast

                  • dusk arising

                    I'm with the chattering birds admiring their boughs with this one. Oh for a silent bird, id make the toast every morning and drink one each eve.

                    • Michael Edwards

                      Is it the toast or the chattering birds that you drink in the evening?

                      And where did the chattering birds come from? It was the boughs that were chattering. Oh so many conundrums - who wrote this piffle?

                    • The Uneducated O.A.P

                      Clear as glass, you bought some love at auction, wrote about it in the ships manifest.and the trees started talking cause you didn't eat yer breakfast.Lol.

                        Perfect - you interpret it so succintly

                      • Goldfinch60

                        Bidding on love may be a possibility but true love is free.
