Behind the Scenes #oneshootsunday #theater

You can’t see it

but it’s there

a world of action

love death laughter guerre


He said it with aplomb

she whispered with disgrace

everything as it should

every line in it’s place


Did you see it?

I think not

for in the wings

we did a lot


The illusion

is so grand

for the house

after they stand


and for us

we smile with grace

for without us

things would be duly out of place


the theater

would be just old boards

the cast

costumed by the hoards


it is us

those wearing black

you never see us

we will be back


for every show

you take the bow

thespians back stage

we are you now


Thanks to One Shoot Sunday for the picture prompt by photographer

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

  1. ok the meds are keeping me from fully getting this…the stage hands in black that make things happen appear, nice touch on them as i havent seen that in another today…


  2. It takes a crew! As well you know. Are we at 1SP the black dressed crew or are we as so often both cast and crew.? And yet your careful crafting of the lines complete with rhymes give understanding to the work that gives meaning to “the show must go on”.
    Well done, Gay


  3. I miss theater!! and your piece ignited my passion for the stage…I was originally a theater major in college (switched to lit and creative writing)…reading this I found myself back on the stage…standing off to the side preparing for my entrance…

    This photo prompt is is your response!


  4. illusions created by the hard work of those who forever go unreckognized. i’ve worked behind the scenes and loved it. this is an excellent take on the One Shoot, Leslie. an amazing piece as are all of your works.
