My Old Piano

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Knots” by Joseph Stroud: trying, shoes, logic, fumbling, stands, anger, trembling, memory, father, knot, tight, untie

I felt a tight knot in my stomach as I came in the house. In the middle of the room stood my old piano. With fumbling fingers I slowly played it, trying not to cry. Memories came plunging in, my friends staying overnight and my mother fussing on us. Or when I couldn’t tie or untie my shoelaces and my father urged me that there was a logic to it. My mother bought me a pair of shoes with Velcro on them. I was angry at first, and with trembling fingers, I was able to tie them. I was proud!
