#Haibun – Magical Melody

Melodies echo in space
Notes grant excursion

Losing track of time, a curious virtuoso reinvigorates an abandoned piano which longs to captivate the world once again. Its strings are vibrating with excitement. Dancing dust of hypnotic lights celebrate the instrument’s rebirth. His gnarled audience, on the other hand, is unaccustomed to such brilliance and attempts to recoil back into the darkness, but is bounded by its vines and roots. As the story is woven, the river encompasses the euphony, flows beyond the pages, and travels into the midnight air.

Cool night embraces
Inspiration left intact
Piece mesmerizes

      Thank you! It seemed to mystify me. I think it’s funny when I think I can see and feel the music from this photo! I think I just miss playing the piano as well… 🙂

      1. Awww so it’s something you personally relate to and connect with, so that makes sense. ❤️😊

    Love what you’ve done with this prompt – the haibun is an excellent form.

      Thank you VJ! I started off with other poetic forms, but I settled on this one which captured everything I wanted it to express.

      When I was reading another poetry blog, I thought the author brought a good point when she said that you wouldn’t use a Tanka to describe the bacon and eggs that she ate for breakfast, because the purpose of a Tanka is normally to express something profound.

      I’ve wondered if certain poetic forms are better to use in certain cases over others.

        Seems so. Your poem certainly demonstrates it.

  4. Lovely Haibun and Haiku to accompany your prose. Well done! ❤
