Heart's Echo, a Poem for February

Heart's Echo

The pianists’ fingers brush the keys, light and flexible as silken spring, 

effervescent as the clear dew of morn, blithe as the flight of a sparrow. 

Artfully she weaves each phrase, sweeping the ivories with effortless ease, 

enchanting melodies floating on the gentle breeze of a sonata, 

the graceful waltz of a serenade, the delicate allure of a nocturne. 

Her musicality flawless, 

Her desire fluent.

Exquisitely she holds within, a rapture that threatens to shatter, 

an ecstasy that consumes in exquisite passion, emptying unto its end - 

and she,  -  left bereft of song or measure or utterance,

Her rose petals scattered across the pianoforte,

Her heart an echoing requiem in stillness.

Thank you for reading my musical, romantic poem. It was written for a poetry contest, based on the photo prompt above.

For those following my works-in-progress - you can read my latest novellas on Wattpad. Here are the links:

Song of the Stars is my newest work-in-progress, started just this week. I'll be writing it during Wattpad's Open Novella Contest, through the Spring of 2021. In the past, this contest has been a great motivator and has spurred me to not only finish two novellas, but also make connections with many supportive writers.

Thank you for visiting my blog, and I wish you a day filled with creativity and wonder. May you be safe & well. -Stacie
