The Sunday Whirl

It was late, very late. Silver shards of moonlight led me twixt trees and bushes then into a clearing.

7ab9cd044c84da1d235f954e4f59c228I felt hot breath on my neck. I turned and held out my hand, but saw no one. I heard music, a melody sweet as honey. Looking up I saw her,  atop a stone tower caressing a fiddle with a bow, her blonde locks and satin gown floating in the breeze. The door was ajar, the steps beckoned me. A voice called me. No harm in entering I supposed.

Up and up I climbed, the music becoming louder, faster, frantic. I reached the top and it stopped. I was alone in the silence.

The sound of birdsong woke me from my slumber. I reached out but there was nobody beside me. On the bedside table sat a violin. As I closed my eyes again the bird’s whistling gave way to the smooth sound of strings.

Was it a dream? Or real. I couldn’t tell, nor ever I shall.

    So, was there someone beside you with a violin when you went to bed?

      I’d had a glass of wine or two so I couldn’t say for sure! Cheers Denise

    Hi Keith – happy remembrances for Father’s Day I’d suggest … some ‘dreams/memories’ are best left as is … warm, wondrous thoughts … great Sunday whirl – cheers Hilary

    I think that was a succubus Keith. I am not sure whether that is good news or bad!

      I have to admit I needed to google succubus, but having found its meaning I think you could be right OE!
