"The director sits in the dark ...and waits"


Our life seems a stage
Across which the players wander
On then off each age
Leaving us alone to ponder
Play or pilgrimage

It is theater in the round
In which "reality"
Is but accidentally found
We actors (you and me)
Are blocked in circles backstage bound

Our careers are as fragile as our fates
The director sits in the dark ...and waits

So few and delicate words give the, Whose Who, of two persons and... a hidden director. Masterfully done. - Bill

An interesting and enjoyable read, vaguely reminiscent of Jaquesí famous speech from Shakespeare's "As you like it."
Reviewed by Felix Perry 1/24/2006
wonderful and reminds me of my old friend "Elvis" who sang a song about life being a stage and we the characters. It is true and the greatest actors hold a strong power that can be used for good or evil.
