The Stage

The world hits the sky

And the music begins

I watch his eyes

Grow large

As the actors pour out

On to the stage

Each their own magician

As their movements, their words

Create a spell

Pulling my son into the story

A bystander to their creation

A smile captures his face

And I know

He starts to see the magic I see

In the end, applause thunders from his hands

And the actors pull themselves out

Of their masterpiece

To give him a wink or a wave

Leaving me to dote upon my son’s joy
