The Stage (Repost July 2016)

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
