Michael Edwards







I woke up early feeling surly

for I’d been fast asleep



I woke up late feeling great

for I’d been slow asleep.




  • Goldfinch60

    I woke up early
    And found these words
    And saw the painting
    I am off to a good day.


    • Michael Edwards

      You didn't woked then - it's good to wake - you know you're still alive.

      Good write and pic M.
      How is Miss B's sleep? Does she count syllables to get to sleep, instead of sheep?

      • Michael Edwards

        No she counts Ara Berles 'cause they stay where they are planted and are easier to count.

      • dusk arising

        D'you ever wonder on opening yer eyes
        How sleeptime lingers or sometimes flies
        then the brain recovers
        as you throw back your covers
        and the missus farts as soundly she lies

      • L. B. Mek

        I like the somber tone to the bright water colours you've utilised, especially framed by that grey - as if a reminder, that just beyond this listless dreary days of Winter: our months of Spring and Summer await our arrival with muted anticipation.
        Let all do our best to say safe and once more experience: Nature's blossoming seasons...
        a wonderful artwork Michael, subtle - ever so subtle,

      • Fay Slimm.

        Ha ha - - you have such a way of using rhyme-words - another bit of welcome wit from your clever pen Michael - --- it well describes my nightly trials too.
