“All the world’s a stage,” Shakespeare wrote in As You Like It.
As I like it is a day like this…
Setting: a summer-green dais with sky blue backdrop, framed by trees that sway with the warm summer breeze.
In the wings, a flurry of beach-goers and bullfrogs, herons and hummingbirds.
Two friends sit at center stage, meandering through creative conversations, as clouds and boats and birds enter and exit without cue.
“…this our life exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.”
