This picture prompt came to my attention today, and something stirred!
Here’s the link if you want to play along too (excuse pun)
Your challenge or writing prompt is this:
- what emotions or feelings get evoked or aroused in you when you look at this photograph taken by Lynn
Remember, the goal isn’t necessarily to tell me and others exactly what the picture is.
She could hear the music as clear as the day. Beautiful heartfelt renditions of musicals from yesteryear.
As a child, she would sit for hours just listening, then go to the old piano in the snug and pick out the notes, getting the melody straight in her head, down to her fingertips and onto the ivory keys.
Years later, the snug was demolished along with the rest of the pub, and all that remained was an old piano.
Nobody wanted it, nobody played it, and gradually it became warped and twisted by the elements, no longer a thing of beauty or a joy of sound.
But, she could hear the music as clear as the day, and even though she died at the age of twelve, could see her daughter sitting there playing, just for her.
