The Harpist in the Glen

​As soon as Eve plucked the first string
the leaves began to whisper overhead
ripples of pleasure rustling from branch to twig.

Butterflies drifted from flower to flower weaving a melody only they could hear

When the music paused so did the leaves.

The birds began chirping to fill the quiet

Eve paused to spin to folk tale while a newly spun spider web vibrated in the ripples when she resumed playing.

The cicadas and one elderly lady in purple accompanied her with their voices.

  1. I never saw this on my Reader page. I hope WP isn’t pulling their glitches on me again!!
    I hope you saw that our latest birthday veteran, Lawrence Brook, 111-years of age, not only had a party thrown by the National WWII Museum in front of his home, but he received over 10,000 cards and he had a fly-over over his house!!

  3. What a lovely treat for your animal kingdom audience. I’m sure they loved it. Eve, our harpist, has said that sometimes when she plays, a bird will settle down beside her to enjoy the music.

  4. What a lovely thing to write. I was scribbling notes in my cellphone as Eve played and I described what I observed. The only thing I left out was the fairies that I imagined perched on each of the fence posts behind Eve.
