Michael Edwards




‘The world’s mine oyster’, scribed Shakespeare the writer

but I’m not all that sure I agree with the blighter

for it seems to me sitting here in the cloister

it’s quite claustrophobic if you’re inside an oyster.

        Another really good
        one Michael....
        On occasion a few
        Words can almost tell
        A novel.... if you know
        What I mean...
        Great write sir. Well done.

        • Michael Edwards

          Cheers PH - now a novel - now there's an idea.

          Thanks MICHEAL very droll ~ poignant painting ! Inside an oyster is best for a Girl ~ Cos if she gets lucky she might find a PEARL ! Thanks BRIAN

          • Michael Edwards

            Thanks Brian but : Inside an oyster can be tempting for a girl, for if she is lucky she may find a pearl BUT if in an oyster she places her hand, she may only find a grain of sand.

            Brian - I quite like this and may turn it into a four line poem and post tomorrow or sometime - do you mind?
