Four Brave Friends
Four brave friends walk on stage
the walk is truly a leap,
a leap of faith, no turning back
for they are now knee-deep…
standing before a sea of faces
staring at them, expectantly.
But they are not alone up there.
the fifth scared friend is me!
Five of us, all amateurs
with only hope and passion
propping us, propellng us
to act, our faces ashen…
but we proceed, our color returns,
absorbing all the energy
from the receptive audience.
A standing ovation? Seriously?
Five thrilled women, faces beaming
cannot wait to do it again.
Four brave friends, I am so proud.
You rose to the occasion!
The response to the performance piece "What Am I Doing Here?" was incredible and I have been receiving many messages asking when it will be reprised. My four friends (or should I say actresses?) are ready and willing, and we have found a great new venue, as well. So come and see us on Tuesday, November 17th at 7:30 at the Booth Center on Wing Lake Road between 14 and 15 Mile Roads. Pre-paid tickets are $18 to be made out to 'Judi's Musings' and mailed to: Judi's Musings, 1760 S. Telegraph, Suite 200, B.H., MI, 48302. For credit card payment, call Robin Paye at 248.230.2707. Tickets at the door will be $20. Can't wait!
My first illustrated collection of poems is available for purchase.
