Bloganuary Prompt Day 5 What is something you wish you knew how to do? I wrote the following rhyme a couple of years ago. It was posted on this blog in April, 2019. It is mostly fiction since my parents did not get a piano until after I left for college and I have three siblings instead of four. My two sisters play the piano and my brother played the guitar. My wish from long ago: I wish I had learned to play the piano.
Though purchased for me in ‘53
it was chipped as you can see
and I wanted new so I pouted;
“I won’t touch it,” I screamed and shouted.
Sibling one – thought it was fun;
Sibling two – mastering keys, his fingers flew;
Sibling three – practiced with glee;
Sibling four – played a complex score.
—I know now, I didn’t win, as I ponder what might have been.
