A play



stage is set
actors in place
touching scene
plays its pace -
starting at the
beginning, till it ends.

for each spectator
looking deeply in :
visibility spectacular
acting real -
where beginnings begin
with endless ends!

life is such,
as you will agree:
different views,
different worlds,
depending on the
beholder's eye -
full of beginnings
with no visible ends.

I love the ending - "no visible ends" - so true.

'No visible ends'

I'm thinking mystical, searching. It is the journey that is important. If we ever reach the end, what then?

Excellent poem!

I like the interplay of beginnings and endings. The first verse is like an incantation.

Great piece. The world is indeed a stage on which we act out our lives

It made me think of the "life is a play, the world your stage" quote. At least I think that's a quote.

You always use such beautiful language.
