Michael Edwards




The text read out inaudita

The message borne con brio.


Though she lived in a landscape of marble

the dust lay thick in gutters.


She stretched her wings when darkness fell

and flew around the lamp of love.



The evening wears on and the decibels rise

in the house where the nectar flows.

        The village looks good as does the artwork.

          Couplets times two and with a couple inside the paint. Enjoy the reading and the paint.

            Thank you myself and me - that's another couplet. 🙂 🙂

            You are a master of couplets: the brush and the pen!

              Thanks so much Fred - about to post the shortest of shorties.
