Did you ever hear music when there was nobody playing it? Find out why…
Friday Fictioneers – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic each week to write a 100 word story about.
This week it’s humor; well, at least, a light-hearted piece.
I Hear Music and There’s No One There*
I dreamt I was in a room filled with musical instruments. There were sweet smells of blossoms, yet the trees outside were bare. I felt like I walking on air. I wondered why.
I tossed in my sleep. When I awoke, I had no appetite. The morning stars twinkled in my eyes.
It was all so crazy. I heard music, yet there was no one there..
I confided this to my friend, who said that it was not so surprising, and it didn’t need any analyzing. She said that I wasn’t sick, I was just in love.
*With apologies to, and an absolute admission of plagiarism of, Irving Berlin’s classic song/lyrics: (I Wonder Why) You’re Just in Love
Please feel free to watch Donald O’Connor and Ethel Merman sing it. The duet portion is terrific.

Really great job… I love the musical tie-in, too! The sweetest take on this prompt I’ve seen!
wow…how sweet of you to say that,,,,,
Thank you. I hear music and there’s someone there… Randy
You cockeyed plagiarist. I enjoyed the story and the clip.
How did you know that I am cockeyed?
Shame on you…but thanks for sharing. It has enlivened my otherwise dull Saturday night.
I accept full blame for my plagiarism and expect, to be drummed out of the Army College, and possibly run for some House of Representatives opening or maybe the Senate, even. I hear political callings and …
I’ve been called a sheeple many times. I would probably vote for you.
I had to look up the word sheeple. That was a new one for me.
Thank you for your wooly vote of blind confluence – and in my case, it is effluence.
Wow, that was fun. You’re not sick, you’re just almost as fucking old as I am!
don’t ever use that profanity ever again in my presence – old.
Great idea. I feel thoroughly entertained – both by the story and the song.
Good. Entertainment R I.
I think you need to work on your genre tags, Randy. That’s definitely romantic fiction this week – a delightful and heartwarming tale.
Romantic fiction, it is then.
That was sweet! I loved it. My favorite line: “he morning stars twinkled in my eyes.”
Wao…I love the song. Thank you
