The colourless flyer almost hidden,

by others more eye-catching 

but just about manages to catch mine

on this dark cloudy day to work.


Why does this simple ad

read like a personal invitation directed at me

why am I suddenly feeling warmer inside and out

as if the sun has momentarily appeared at that precise moment

and then gone back into hiding

it is as if my drowning in boredom minds life

has been rescued!

Leon - the system's been playing up a bit of late. I'm sure my emphasis was on you and not Rose in my previous comment. I said I was in a state of shock to see you had returned from the dead. I was missing your red I am Rose's red lips

You sure you didn't see her in Casablanca?...


Seems I've got your poems mixed up - funny times

Seems Leon and Rose are still sleeping
Casablanca (Rose) she seems still there
Six months she's be cavorting with beach hunks
No doubt with bikini quite bare

Told her to take her bikini.......

Maybe not a good suggestion after all......

Where are you Rose?

Please send postcard...

We miss you....

Is this real or just a story? Curious to know if you actually went there or've created some suspense here.

Hey Leon, it's me here, please look-see
I'm colourless, I'm waving at you
I'm small but I'm packed with a message
Just look at me with your eyes, do

Thankyou Leon.....?
