Piano Keys

The black and white keys spread out before me.

The sheet music of choice is in my sight.

I place my hands before I hit a key.

Notes, dancing, up and down, then left and right.

I glance at the music, ready to play.

The judge’s eyes set on my every move.

So now, I silently begin to pray.

For, I’ve heard, they don’t easily approve.

I heave a huge sigh, then begin to play.

The music, it floats around in the air.

Black and white keys turn into shades of gray.

Notes, swirling up, around without a care.

Now, the judge’s eyes have faded away.

And I feel at ease the first time today.
