Reading Response: Writing Wednesday

Since I’m trying out the whole “reader-response” thing in my new experiment with “Little Reviews” I thought that today might be a good time for you to share an artistic response to something…artistic.

Write a little story, or a line or two, or a poem, or whatever you want to a piece of art — whether written, or musical, or visual, or whatever, then either post it in the comments or link to you blog/website where you’ve posted it.

  1. You asked for it. Here’s one ‘Little story’:
    _________________________________

    I wasn’t surprised to see my grandmother when I opened the front door on a balmy summer evening, though some of you may think I should have been. She’s been dead for over 50 years.

    “You are looking peaky,” she said. “I heard you playing that Schubert Impromptu; a few wrong notes and a bit erratic in places.”

    I looked for the ruler in her hand, the one with which she rapped my fingers at each wrong note when I was a boy. Nothing.

    “Are you going to invite me in?” she asked.
    “No.”
    “Well you come out for a walk then,” she said, extending a hand.
    “No, it’s cold out there, and I’m not ready yet,” I said as I firmly closed the door.
