Word Prompt: Music

Fifteen minutes before the day goes dark

Trapped within walls where conformity reigns

She listens for the songs

Prays for three, will settle for two

It’s a bad omen when there’s only one

Between the drone of talk show chatter

Flicking fingers at her ear,

Taunting the child who craves a hum,

A melody, harmony, flowing beneath words

Lyrics she understand better than laughter

Voices that touch her soul

Break free her imagination

She’s carried to worlds far away

Where love and adventure give her hope

The mundane life will not always be so

When the radio hosts silence their wagging tongues

And let the music play.

About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
