Sad Piano

For me there’s something poignant about a piano put out for removal by the local waste collection service. How many songs have been played on that old piano? Dances danced? Shows accompanied? Romances begun? A piano’s wood and metal structure is surely more than the sum of its parts. This little poem, a haiku, celebrates and mourns the piano you see in the photograph.

put out with rubbish

abandoned to sun, rain, I

play only sorrow
