Life's Theatre

Our theatre's curtains slowly fall
and gone behind them 
the loveliness and all that beauty 
we’d always known to be
too fine for such as we. 
They were only ever ours to wonder at,
to touch, to taste and savour,
and where they were is once again,
all that which is our own.
Reality.

    Knowing your stories, I can really understand this one, Red. It's just wonderful. I think there remains only one of your favorites that I may not have seen yet. Wish I remembered which!!

    Ditto Ruby's and Mystic Rose's remarks. Go ahead and grin and bear it. :)

    Clutching chest! Oh Woe! Oh no! Do you need a little tickle to bring your smile right my lovely friend? Yes..I'm cheeky. This is such beautiful writing...you must be so tired of hearing from me how I feel about your talents...and yet I persist. Love Ruby xx

    Ruby, if you have this compulsion to heap praise on my offerings, then I suppose I'll just have to grin and bear it. Please.
