Having been on stage [a long time ago] on a short run of six performances, I found this concept wandering around in my mind. Night Dazed - 11 May 15 On the dark night stage We play our parts Say our lines Then withdraw Into the daylight Dazzled by the light Forgetting the words Playing the play Pretending we know What comes next In the wings Sheltered from extremes But the play goes on And we await the whispered Cue I do not recall that anyone actually said "cue" though ~ just left it up to the memory of the actors and actresses.

A poem to celebrate the passage of winter into spring. Winter Sky - 12 Apr 15 Under the winter sky We waited Felt the new growth Begin to stir within As Earth melted Winter grey faded Into blue The sun warmed us Showed the coming days Opened our eyes Winter skies a memory Only seen in the moments Of rain Passing through a day Watering the flowers An occasional winter grey is welcome to enhance the brightness of blue.
