The Sound Of Music ... for One Deep Breath

3 year old Noah at the piano, August 2006

We recently brought our keyboard/piano to North Carolina to let our grandchildren enjoy the making of music. It's been an instant hit. While Zoe is ready to take some lessons, Noah, a lover of music and movement just wants to bang away. The following haiku are about the music he creates!

Noah practices
rocks his body nods his head
music fills his heart

fast slow loud then soft
little fingers poke the keys
a summer storm of thunder

I really love these, special moments perfectly captured. Welcome to ODB :)

I long for a small someone to "poke the keys" on my piano and create a "summer storm of thunder."

How wise of you to let them enjoy music in whatever ways it moves them - that's the key to being a musician!

Lovely haiku and photo!
