Friday Fictioneers: The Key of Time

Well it has been waaay too long since I posted a contribution to a wonderful group of people inspired and led by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields called Friday Fictioneers!

I am glad to be back and to share my take on this week’s photo courtesy of her husband Jan.

A reminder to newer readers, Friday Fictioneers is a flash fiction of 100 words or less that uses a photo prompt.

So here, for the first time 16 months is this week’s Friday Fictioneers!

Enjoy and feedback is welcome!

The Key of Time©

As the group slowly walked through the former home of Dorothy Martin, long time community music teacher who had passed ten years earlier, one of the group, a graying man who was about 70 stopped in front of the oh so familiar spinet.
His visage clearly changed as his mind and heart went back 50 years, to one particular day when they, teacher and student, were alone in the house. As he struggled with the Mozart minuet, she touched his tense hands and more than the music flowed.
“Dad…DAD! Doesn’t the house look nice?”
Tears of time was the response.

  1. Dear Jim,

    Hmmm…he was 20 then…more than music flowed….hmmm. But who am I to judge? 😉 Truly a sweet piece. Nicely imagined. It’s great to see you back. 😀



    1. Good morning Rochelle!

      Yeah, I had to do some math real quick! 🙂
      But I was envisioning her as a single gal, living at home after college, who was about 5 years older than he, and was expecting to stay single.
      Thanks for your comments!
