TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Piano

This worn out piano in the old Fremantle jail would be able to tell many tales I am sure.

Rain on the piano strings,

Playing cool jazz.

I am always delighted to get suggestions for possible household objects to feature in the next challenge so don’t hesitate to mention them in the comments. This week’s suggestion is from Skyllairae of “Eat Me” and although I used to possess a baby grand (a story for another time) I have no piano of my own now (cue tragic violin music).

I took this photo of a piano just the other day in the very haunting convict built prison in Fremantle, Western Australia. This huge architectural relic from the 1850s was built by convicts as a prison and was used as Western Australia’s only prison, practically unchanged, until its final closure in 1991.

If you would like to participate in TJ’s Household Haiku challenge then you can use any aspect of the household item for an inspiration. Please use this or your own “piano” photo. “piano” could be any keyboard instrument or the ideas that it generates such as when you use it, the feelings it inspires…be creative!

If you are participating please write your post on your own blog (we love to see your own photos too!) and add your contribution as a link to your post in the comment section here and add “TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge” to your tag list on your own post so others can find you! Just click on the speech bubble at the end of this post to access comments.

Hope to see your posts soon!

    1. Haiku is such an intriguing form and the very brevity of it allows for great leaps of imagination. It is a good way to distill ideas and play with words. Thanks again for taking the time to participate and your very kind words!

  1. I love the photo of the piano and your haiku. Yes, I’m sure there would have been many tales to tell, and maybe a lot that were not so good. We should have taken a before and after of our piano.

    1. A lovely triplet of Haiku creating a great piano chord. Thanks so much for participating. I really enjoy your creativity and the facets you add to the prompt.
