Stage Fright: Opening Night (Photo Credit: Wikipedia)

 

The players slowly mushroom forth
Into their characters and into their places
Upon a field of dreams cleverly designed
To create complete illusion of the script writer’s reality

Every actor, a field player,
Breathlessly anticipates the one night
The one night where a heart races like no other
As the heavy burgundy shade rises
It is opening night

Stage fright panic soon appears
As the well-rehearsed lines
Perfected by the director’s million and one cues
Suddenly disappears
It is a memory loss on opening night

Suddenly, like magic
Bright spotlights move the lines all together
Field players, realize all too quickly,
The final curtain calls
Bringing the heavy burgundy shade down
To bring a close to opening night

This Weekly Writing Challenge: Easy As Pie…was a study on similes and metaphors. My study (definitely) continues but do check out below creative writers who met up to the standard of this challenge:

    Sunshine, I wonder why you don’t write/post more poetry–must just be a lack of time, eh? I’d love to see more here!! God bless you abundantly–have a fab weekend–love, sis Caddo

      I am trying to figure out how you put your lovely poems together to post one just about everyday, sis,…this one really took its time deciding how it would flow on the paper. Sheesh! Alas, it was/is a great writing exercise so will attempt to do more in time.
      Thank you again, my kind sis Caddo…going into the weekend just as you say…fabulously!!! haha 🙂 Wishing you the same…

      Well, I borrowed the photo from Wikipedia as our theater is an open stage…haha, but the memory loss is real. I think the brain shuts down for some odd reason but reactivates once the lights hit on…lol, probably doesn’t want to miss the big encore or is trying to avoid hearing boos and hisses if it remains dormant!!
      Thanks for the support, Marilyn! 🙂
