Oh, Meloney, I didn't realise was your lion poem ... I've come over all thick! I will paste it over to the circle blog!

The interconnectedness of all things.

You're very special, my dear citrus friend.

I'm still worrying about those chocolates sweating in the drawer, when you present us with this, on top of all that poignancy.....whats a fellow melon to do except agree with cailleach.

Meloney Lemon said...

... Hello Floral, great to virtually see you... those chocolates sure are sweaty.

Don't you think chocolate is a popular word in the blogosphere?

Just waiting for a minxy comment now!

Floral Post-it said...

I think the chocolate escaped from the drawer in the reurrected form of the easter bunny and is currently laying waste to the chocolate grass on the candy coated pavement verge, somewhere near you right now.

Sorry I know that was all over weeks ago, but I have to catch up.

By the way have you ever read any Jasper Fforde books? I think Mr E Bunny might be featured in the more recent ones.

Minx said...

I am heavily influenced by chocolate.

'Chocolate sweat' sounds vaguely vulgar, or a good name for a band.

Meloney Lemon said...

Yes - everything is connected. Do you think that it's a glitch in the matrix or something far greater?

Ooer getting heavy........

I love this poem!

Hi, came by to meet you and check out your page. I am in the Shameless Lions Writing Circle as well.
This is very good. I'll be back to visit soon!

No I haven't read any Jasper Forde. Bet he's Scottish though.

Next time they want to change the name of their band I will suggest Chocolate Sweat. Better than Zoo Trip anyway.

Shimshon said...

Roar! Don't mention zoos please ...

Anyway, Joe - I'm looking forward to rampaging through the streets of Sarf London together and scaring the pants off the locals. Oh what fun we shall have ...
