Chill Piano

What music do you listen to?

When people ask me, “What music do you listen to?”
 I want to say,
 “Have you ever heard a piano,
 over sparkling drinking and 
 confided conversations?
 No, not that fast piano, or that happy piano,
 but calm,
 chill piano,
 a walk down a nighttime street,
 or a lazy morning,
 or a breeze,
 or a thought,
 but a lost one. Not found quite yet.
 There’s still some mystery in it.
 That’s my favorite.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
