The Award Ceremony

For the Write Now Prompt from Today’s Author. 

Not my favorite piece by far. But it’s something!


Crickets along the base of the stage

Empty seats all around

Confusion, questions, that twinge of the heart

Whenever was this thing to start?


Waiting unto the fall of night

Still hoping beyond reason

Someone might show

But alas, it was time to go


Pack up your goods, grab your award

For what it might be worth

After all, what is a prize

When none witness its awarding with their own eyes?
