Welcome To My Parlour
The grand piano was so beautiful, so elegant, so certain of its place to be here on this beach, the allure of the shore was long forgotten.
The ornate body stood mounted upon four thick legs, hourglass shaped, buried within a great mound of wrinkled sand. Wooden swirls embossed each side of the piano and the space above the keys. The entire object was exquisitely clean, as if immune to the minut...
Retirement had always been the goal, the dream. For years it was what drove Mark to get out of bed everyday. That promise of a day he wouldn’t have to get out of bed if he didn’t want to. He had to admit, he missed work, and the people at work. However much he missed his old way of life, retirement still had its perks. Long walks on the beach being pretty much chief among them.
A hustle of a care...
Today was like every day for me. I was walking across the beach side of my summer home. It was the only way my head could be cleared. Ever since I was a kid, I had my life set on one path specifically. Be the best businessman I could be.
My parents made sure of that by having me spend extra time in school for studying. Every day, I would spend a good chunk of time just staring out the window in m...
The Sand Face
Between the hum of the sea and the cawing gulls, the breeze carried a faint voice across the shore. From where? She couldn't tell. It didn't matter, because she would ignore it. Probably just the wind howling as it passed through the rocks.
Shaking a fringe of seaweed from her foot, she ambled along the beach, her white tunic shielding her from the sun. No sign of the boat she'd been told of. Eit...
Context: The character goes to the beach one day, but gets stuck on the beach and can’t leave. They realize that since the piano is the only thing there, it must be the way out, but it won’t make sound.
Day after day
Time won’t change
The keys can’t play
The piano beckons to me
Freedom in each key
Only exit I can see
Sound won’t come
Brain goes numb
Stuck in the sand
Can’t feel ...
The Devil’s Song
The morning sunrise was beautiful, it rose up out of the ocean, signaling a new day with new blessings. A cool breeze and the call of seagulls in the distance calmed me. I took a deep breath and noticed the subtle aroma of the salt water ocean.
Just then, in the distance, I noticed a strange object. I heard a song as soon as my gaze fell upon it. The song was gorgeous, I was tempted to follow the ...
Grains of Sand
Every morning I walked through the smooth sand of the beach downtown. I used to come here with my dog and girlfriend, until they both left me. Even though the wavy horizon reminded me of how much I cried when Kayla broke up with me, the shoreline and far-away islands reminded me of Lily.
One day, I was walking the same path I had always walked, when I came across an intricate grand piano made fro...
There is just something about Florida. Maybe it’s the state’s tropical clime, it’s role as a major international food port or its subpar educational system but this dong shaped state has more invasive species than any other state in the union. Wild hogs rip the native shrubs; lionfish decimate the reef fish nurseries; Argentinean tegu gobble native ground bird eggs; and don’t even get started on t...
The Magical Piano
“Is that a piano?”
I blinked and glanced at my friend, Molly. She was standing in the sand, her gaze transfixed on an object in front of her. I peered in that direction.
“Um, I don’t know…” I trailed off as we got closer. It was a piano. An old, wooden grand piano. I walked up to it and ran my hand across its side.
The side panels were beautifully carved, with an intricate design of swirling b...
A Weird Surprise
I was walking along the coast line,
On my daily walk at sunrise,
I came across something
That was a big surprise.
A piano right before my eyes.
I loved piano and to play it.
Well, why am I waiting?
I sat on the chair and started playing.
Then I feel like I’m going high in the sky.
I look down,
And I’m Flying!...
