Miz Quickly’s Prelude

Miz Quickly’s Prelude
The old Cuckmere Haven Coastguard Station c. 1920 cc:00

A Prelude

There’s music
in the sea air, it’s
in the damp plaster walls
and the grey shining windows.

Music’s in
the stained mattress
and the rusty taps that once
spilled with water. It leaves its
mark behind photos on the wall.

Music falls in tiers,
peals off the shingle beach,
floats on the sea in this place
where music begins.

Miz Quickly’s “Prelude” supplied a music prompt, Debussy Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune – Leonard Bernstein. Shared with @Experimentsinfc #APoemADay on Twitter   ©Misky 2021

  1. Perfect prelude of imagery, and then into the music. I can hear that rusty tap dripping. Adding this one to my chap book where I store lots of favorite posts. 🙂
