Center Stage

Center Stage

she tiptoes gingerly across
the cluttered expanse
filled with evidence of
her children’s talents

Mary circles carefully around the
future architect’s
intricate construction
of blankets and pillows

steps over the future pilot’s
fleet of lego spaceships
lined up in formation
alongside the cardboard hanger

future fashion designer’s
jewels, feather boas
dresses and shoes
lie in heaps in front of
full length mirror

mat for practicing tumbling skills
stretches out for the future Olympian

TV blares a sing-a-long CD
dancing music for
young singers
practicing karaoke

fertile ground for ingenious minds

her life spills out into every corner
reverberating with creative sparks
set off by her lively offspring
