Thought

So says bard: “All the world’s a stage”.

Where talented thespians read from page,

Where lines are learnt, and scenes rehearsed

And actors in their roles immersed


They offer up their heart and stay

Convinced about the part they play

Now curtains drawn and taken bows

Theatre hall echoes from empty rows


Now released from make believe

Actors go home and find reprieve

From lines and painted faces go

To freely watch another show


Another drama on wide screens

Makes them laugh and cry at scenes

With actors’ skills and cardboard trees

Forgetting that they’re there to please


Soon, stage is blank, and worlds are none

No parts are filled, and dramas gone

And witness to these transient worlds

Stays still, surveys and gives reviews


Those knowing ones will surely tell

That only One played parts so well

The Lord with purpose, not by chance

Directed - produced the Cosmic Dance


Prayer

O Lord, Cosmic Actor. Let me always dance and sing in your creative drama. May I learn to always play my role well. Please save me from thinking that I am doing anything or profiting from actions. Grant that I may see You in the glory of Your Cosmic Play.
