Michael Edwards





Through the night

within the room in which they stayed

through the night.

The candle shed its wavering light

upon the bed in which they laid

as curtains by the window swayed

through the night.

      Love the feel of these secretive lines Michael and love the cloud-mass in your beautiful watercolour. Hhmmm what do they say about poetic minds thinking alike - today I have posted a verse about Cloud. Strange eh ?
