Just Karma 175
‘Able’ and ‘Can’
Behind the scenes plays a much different act;
the crew who build and moves the sets –
that is where I have been.
In the darker shadows, with my name
occasionally printed in a pamphlet.
let the loud voices
bellow to reach great distance;
I will hear whispers
The wing of industrious insects
Imprinting the seasons with action and song
That is where I will be
In the silver moon lit shadows, with my eyes
Looking upwards to the constellations
let the dusk and dawn
build the dreams of my nights and
also of my daze
Thunder is good, thunder is impressive;
but it is the lightning that does all the work.
– Mark Twain
