Sunday Photo Fiction – December 31st 2017

I love this photograph and wrote about the first thing that entered my head when I saw it.

They called it Windsong, a revolution in music for the Third Millennium and Mankind.
These huge staves of notes reached out and up into the sky, their soothing melody drifting across the air whenever the wind blew.
It filled their cities with tranquil lullabies, an instrumental crooning that affected all.
Gone was the road rage, the street attacks, anger and violence.
Music was their healer, a new leader in Harmony for the lost and lonely.
It was the nearest Man would ever come to World Peace.
Within fifty years, the War Mongers and Power Hungry tore them down.
There was no profit in music.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour 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! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    If the music were that effective, I’m surprised anyone was motivated to tear them down, even the power hungry warmongers.

    Sadly it appears that some in society will always need to fight.

    I always suspected that was the solution.
    It’s all Rock n Roll!

  4. Susan says:

    Music soothes the savage beast, so they say. But there are always those who cannot be tamed at all. I liked this very much

    Thank you for adding music to the wind art installation by the train station (in my city) in my photo.
    I can only hope that with time a new music will arise that cannot be torn down – even by those who cannot hear the beauty of peace.

  6. The sad thing is I can believe this would happen. The first things to go in a public school in the U.S. with money problems are the art and music classes. Good writing, Pensitivity. —- Suzanne

  7. The arms dealers won’t have made any money with them up. A shame they couldn’t find a different outlet. Good story
