“A Gentle Performance” (Angela R. Landreth)


The stage is set.

A performance for all senses.

The moon shines as the spotlight

upon the stage.

Anticipation rises as a wave

combs over the sand.

Like a gentle ballerina reaching

out for her partner.

The wave pulls back.

and is caressed by the wind.

Together they move fluently

across the stage.

Every graceful movement is captivating.

The stars twinkle in the clear sky

as if to applaud.

Clouds roll in

acting as the curtain

falling to the stage,

signaling the conclusion

of tonight’s performance.
