knots

three word wednesday: dare, essence, practical

quiet...

the subtle essence of C
placed perfectly in the middle
anchors my soul to the sound of a serenade
the tips of my fingers placed so light
soothes the trembling
hardly no one sees

the dare of a challenge
ponders between the days and nights
noting nothing is as practical as an hour practicing
essential to the soul the mind moves
the fingers play and sound
shifts the candle light

  1. “noting nothing is as practical as an hour practicing
    essential to the soul the mind moves
    the fingers play and sound
    shifts the candle light”
    just an overload, a wealth of beautiful writing…

  2. Beautiful musical piece ms pie..playing around the middle C of a piano – although ‘C’ has other meaning..finding something to calm fingers and nerves..like birdsong..Jae

  3. This was really wonderful! I love how your wrapped a melody around this prompt. And I especially loved, “…the fingers play and sound/shifts the candle light.”

  4. This is beautiful-your writing and picture both. Thanks for your visit and comment about my journal. I love to hear how others use theri journals.

  5. I am a singer/songwriter who lives for the piano. Middle C is my anchor, just as F and J are the anchors of a practiced typist. Your rendering of this was beautiful, as was your use of the prompt words. Nicely done, Pie!

    Peace, (or is that Piece?) Amy Barlow Liberatore

  6. what beautiful images this conjures. i’ve always loved playing the piano. i was better when i was younger… now i just play for fun when i can remember the notes, 🙂

writing is everything...
