Michael Edwards





It’s a small world ain’t it

but I don’t want to paint it.


They say it’s neither here nor there

Where can it be ?

Are you aware?


My parents failed to understand me

my parents were Japanese you see.

          BRIAN HERE ~ GOOD SABBATH UNCLE MIKE ! Thanks for the MOTHER BOARD for *ALEXA* Being a female its the most complex yet ! Ive been married nearly a year and when I click on to *UNDERSTANDING ANGELA* it says 2% complete ! Thank GOD genetically we*ve both got another 50 years ! Love the CM*s !

          No 1. When I was Younger I painted the Town Red when Liverpool won the European Cup ~ but that was my limit !
          No 2. When all is *Said & Done* theres nothing more to be *Said or Done

            I'm thinking I promise - but not sure what about. Life's complicated.

            There weren't many things Bill couldn't do well.
            But his missus had a knack for finding them.

            When everything else fails.
            You may as well join in.

            Time flies.

            Abstract painting, for abstract poetry! Seriously though, both are cute! Best to you and yours

          • Andrew Charles Forrest

            I love the abstract Michael it makes me think how we attempt to make sense of a chaotic world with Geometry and math... Excellent, it really speaks out

          • FredPeyer

            Love the poem.
            Love the painting.
            Nuff said!

            Thanks for the intro to Chic Murray, Michael.
            As above re the artwork.

              I just love his pre-woke humour.
              I still find his stair humour so funny:

              I came down the stairs - I use the same stairs I use when going up - it saves having two sets of stairs.

              i get up early - it means I've got the rest of the day to myself.

              I got up this morning and came down the stairs - it's easier than climbing out the window.

              • Doggerel Dave

                So - seen him on utube , then sussed out book collections. Seems main attraction is 'Funnyosities'. Do you know of (and recommend) any others or better?

                A good write and a beautiful picture.

                Keep writing and safe during these challenging times.
