What Do You See #84, May 31/2021 – Hearing History

This was written for Sadje’s WDYS prompt, https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/2021/05/31/what-do-you-see-84-may-31st-2021/

Rules;

You can write a post on your blog and create a pingback to link to the original post.

Write an original story, poem or a caption.

There is no limit to words or format but keep it family-friendly.

If you post a response before next Sunday, I will be able to add it to my roundup post.

I will do a round-up next Sunday before the next Prompt is posted.

It is always helpful if you can give your post/story/poem a title.

Paste a link of your post in the comments section so that I don’t miss anyone in the roundup post.

Please tag your responses with

My Submission 🙂

It was his passion, and had been since he was a youth. 

His grandfather’s instrument was passed down to his father, 

And then, to him. 

Since the age of eight, he had practised day and night, not for fame or glory,

But to uphold a segment of family heritage.

As an old man, he sat in the park, and played.

He didn’t ask for money, 

That was not the point.

Anything donated, went to his chosen charity.

With every strum, he was reminded of his childhood:

When his grandfather played, and then his father.

He was def now, but knew that passersby were fortunate enough to hear,

A cherished piece of family history.
