Welcome to Day 19 of the Third Annual A to Z Challenge!
My theme – my 26 fiction posts will revolve around something musical – it could be anything, as long as it's musically-related… maybe a song title, an artist/band, musical terminology, musical instruments, words relating to sound/rhythm/movement/dance etc.
I've been so pressed for time – and there are only 7 more days left to visit as many new blogs as possible… So once again, I have re-posted an old piece, which I changed a little, tweaked here and there and… voila…
MUSICAL ASSOCIATION/CONNECTION. STACCATO – a form of musical articulation; it signifies a note of shortened duration, seperated from the note that may follow by silence; a dot placed above or below the note indicates that it should be played in this short, detached manner
Can you trust a machine?
One that dictates life or death as it emits an erratic beat?
It is there. A tiny dot of promise… a blip on the radar screen of life…
Then it is gone… hold your breath… it returns and lingers, a reminder of the steady, faint glow of a lone firefly amongst the shrubs as your tiny frame crouches in the garden, peering, squinting, trying to penetrate the darkness, eager to locate the exact spot.
The beat is barely audible, now… a reminder of the tentative hold on life, fragile hope… the flickering glow from a hundred fireflies a reminder of the countless moments of laughter, an unforgettable gift.
