Michael Edwards






In channels long since worn and lost

and damp with dew in lingering light

the truant memories soon return

imbibed the scene and hour in dreams.


A place to dance with mystic joy

to notes that rise in furtive winds

ascending the empyrean

where reconstructed worlds reside.


Within  the realms of heavens arms

excursive instincts soon foregone

the images with broken wings

fall back to land with early light.

    May those dreams reach that empyrean height and become real.


    • Michael Edwards

      They became real 55 years ago when I met Jeanne.

      • Goldfinch60

        And may they last forever as mine do with Joyce.

          Michael, you did it again! You mesmerize us with images and words! A rare and beautiful combination.

          • Michael Edwards

            You're too kind Fred how are things where you are?

            • FredPeyer

              Can't complain. I am still working and got my first Pfizer shot. Second one to come early April. That alone is taking a load off my mind. Hope you are doing OK!

              Your artistic words lure this reader to join in those scenic dreams my friend - a delightful read and wondrousl images.

                Thanks Fay - I'm now back to painting village scenes thanks to an upsurge in commissions.

                had to reread your poems 4 or 5 times, such a natural flow and subtly worded hints of insightful commentary, wrapped tight within immersive imagery of art and poetry..
                a great write Michael,

                  You're very kind - this one took ages - it was in the pending box for a couple of weeks and still might make some adjustments.

                  Dreams are serene and more so when they become reality- as so poetically romanticized by you
