By day he stood tall and still, poised and unthreatening, a wonder to behold.
By night, he came alive, the notes of his haunting melody caught on the wind.
He played to his Love, the One who’d ran when he tried to seduce her, the One he hoped he’d gathered in his instrument, a reeded pipe.
He played with his Heart, Body and Soul, trying to allay her fears of him, to tempt her back.
He would not, could not, hurt her, but she hadn’t understood.
In his music, he was not the ugly half beast of legend but beautiful, as much as she.
He was destined to be alone and forever play on silent cloudless starlit nights, yearning for her to hear his calling and come to him.
As the dawn broke, the strains lingered and died as he turned back to stone until the next time.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
