Nia at the piano

Nia at the piano

A Poem by aLittlePain
"

....

"


Sometimes when we wait silently
and long she drifts into a perfect little song
where ivory keys dance intricately
upon wistful notes
from small and perfect voice.

There is a part that is
her innermost heart.


And she says always that the music,
sings of all the small brave tempest-wearied
wings that seek a trackless way
over the sea to some shore far away
in her memory
that weakens, and falters, and fails,
and drops in the foam
and never reaches home.

She says it is their courage and
their fear and their unwavering faith.
All she hears is a little girl with sea green eyes
a face purer than the first sunrise,
calling … the voice of Nia.

Ever dreamt about moving to Italy? Think again! Read the hilarious adventures of two Dutchmen who took the plunge.
The soapy keys sliding through the strings as neonic pinnacle, the soft and silk in the spirit that comes across the music alters the ambient around. Oh, the delight a soul can recieve if the ears happen to open in the moment.

Beautifully writen

Beautifully poetic response. Thank you.
This is beautiful Rach. What a lovely thought, that the sounds and voices are born and brought to us, kissing our lives and moving on, yet they stay with us, in such beautiful thoughts as this.

And again you seemed to grab the metaphorical shovel and dug deep, into my skin and heart. How do you do this with just a few words but so perfectly, so heartfelt and sweet somehow and good? Honey with a pinch of hurt, the perfect consummation for the soul.

Wow, I never imagined that I'd ever love a poem concerning a piano, lol. I liked the flow of this and I enjoyed the way it implies how emotional it can be listening to a person playing music on a piano, whether it be a Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Bach or Tchaikovsky. My father loves playing the piano and I have nice memories listening to him playing Beethoven and other composers.

A very good poem that reminds me of the unadulterated emotions one can experience by just listening to those magical piano keys. Joy, melancholia, wistfulness, a sense of remembrance.

A piano can really grab hold of you and force you to relive memories in a profound manner.

I have to admit I've fallen in love with this poem, Ray. Incredibly good job, Ray! ;)

this was very remarkably written. I could really feel the impact of this story in the line "drop in the foam and never reach home." it was as if hope just halted. a pure gem you have written here. Good!
