THE STAGE : ACTS AND SCENES ! (a poem)

Stage Is Set /
Players Ready /
Light On/
Mouths Move /
Lips Shape And Reshape /
First The Monologue /
Dialogue The Next /
Each Has A Part /
Each Makes A Whole /

Speech Alternates With Pause ! /
Silence Fills The Gap /

Meaning Meanders /
Through – /
The Tangles Of Expressions /
Rich In Content And Style /
But, Alas !
Where Is It ? /
Except In Silence ! /
Speech Repeats /
Silence Is Ever New !

Scenes And Acts /
Come And Go /
Nothing
Matters
But,
The Essence !
And,
Life
Moves
Between
The Promises Of Heaven/
And,
The Ultimate Frustration !

The Play Ends Without Any Thud /
The Gallery Empties Its Load /
The Stage Turns Dark/
Possiblities Stay In The Background /
For The Stage Has Lost Its Space And Import /
And,
Players- /
Plot /
Punctuations/
And/
Patience/
Lost Forever /
In/
Purpose And Point !
