a coda of lights!

~

this

is

the last dance

of

the last act

before

the final curtain call

of

the season.

it has been quite a run of glowing performances

but

it is now time

to bid adieu,

pack up the costumes and the sets

until

we return

again next year.

~

Please,

do not be sad

~ ~ ~

miracles await us!

for a miracle to bring

peace and harmony to our world.

humanity may be in trouble

but miracles have been known to occur…

each awaits a turn

words spoken from long ago
