From the Pocket of a Dream

*Old Piano*

A place
between past and sadness
now is his home for good
Abandoned and deaf
he dwells
in the forest of solitary thoughts

Memories of joy became
the unwished possesion
ahead of his doorstep

He feels no more than
the tenacious disobedience
of the oncoming sorrows
The only thing left
is to wait
Wait for the final crash

    arrgh sad as one thinks of the beautiful music once played and the people who sat to touch the keys…
    This has a double meaning for me this week as we were able to get a second hand upright piano for my Son who is introducing his near 2 yr old to its vibrant keys… Joy is the sound of music even if in untrained hands at this moment.. 🙂 xxx

      Excatly my thought, it was really sad to see it like that…even the sound came out from some of the keys.

    Fantastic photo you have chosen – stunning … an abandoned and so full of stories to tell – just like to many of our elderly.

      Thank you William, yes I took the photo when I visited the castle I named above. The ten old pianos stand there outside the castle piled up on each other. Pretty sad to see…

    Still … Easy to to remember its times of glory … this piano witnessed so much … love and heartbreak, tender beginings of like, tears of any kind … the list goes on and on.
