Drabble: A Song for Everything

My response to the July prompt ‘song’.

Genre: slice of life, tragedy


~A Song for Everything~

Her neighbour had a song for everything. A light ditty while he walked, a jazzy number as he tackled the garden, and the occasional chorus sung off-tune on purpose.

One day, she heard the most haunting melody. Fearing the worst, she headed next door, only to find him hovering over the shards of a mug. No, he hadn’t hurt himself, nah, it wasn’t that expensive, nope, the only thing significant about the mug was that he made it himself. They had a good laugh over it and picked up the pieces together.

A few years later, she heard his song for grief.
