My # 7 for National Poetry Month



crafting sound,

we each move through

carved territory.

cue line.

cue song,

with the intent

to move you--

laughter, the flip side of tears.

not so different from poetry really.


the repetition is good,

comforting

so lights up,

cue entrance,

a flip of the head,

a bit of nuance,

and She moves into focus

for you and for me

I am knee deep in rehearsals for the next two weeks. Grandma Tzeitel in Fiddler on the Roof. Mazeltov!

      Focus is different for us all, but the end result is the same: good memories for each individual and each life. well said, and anther good, provoking thought.

      There are so many nuances to consider in both writing and on stage. I like how you drew parallels here.

      Another beautiful poem, Audrey. Each one captures my imagination. Good luck with the musical rehearsals. I once directed "Fiddler" on the high school level. Such a fun time.
