Writing 201 : Poetry — Old Piano

Today’s theme and task is: Gift, Acrostic, Simile

old Piano

Out of tune,
Long gone the gift of touch,
Dangling cobwebs all over.

Pieces of music sheets scattered,
In the house that once were,
As old as time,
No warm touch on ivory keys,
Only dust covered.

A little note on practice : I must say today’s theme is tough. I read up on simile and it’s a close cousin of metaphors. I use them often without thinking much. Although at times it’s difficult to express in English, I’m so glad this course is tremendously helpful in improving my language and writing forms.

  1. Very good, I really felt sorry for the lonely piano 😦 – I liked ‘Long gone the gift of touch,’ a lot.

    I also found simile / metaphor difficult, Ben replied to a post earlier providing some more examples.
