The Thing

Colleen’s words to use this week are WORK and PLAY



Learn their parts

In rehearsals

Because that is their job

The director guides them

Costumers make their wardrobes

Sets are designed and built with care

Tickets are sold, ushers seat patrons

When the curtain rises, the fun begins

Gay Blades

Excited children JUMP

Into big GRASSY piles

Show the world with bright smiles

Unbridled joy

Circle Game

Hunting for fresh knowledge

Sorting fact from fiction

Solve the contradiction

Back to square one

Bum’s Rush

The wrinkle in the tout’s

Pitch for merchandise cheap

Lull customers to sleep

No excitement

Packs his traveling case

Off to find a new crowd

No street selling allowed

Oh, drat the luck

Haiku 10/12/21

Soft tangerine tint

The sky of the ebbing day

Fades into night’s gloom
