I’ve stopped tumbling through time.
to his silent moment of triumph.
Suddenly, I see,
that he hears only
through pulsing stringed vibrations
and deafened, thundering applause.
This weekend, we want you to give us a 33-word time travel story. We don’t usually tell you what to title your piece, but we’d love it if you could title it with the year/date that you choose.

What a terrific imagining. I could almost feel the floorboards rumbling (suddenly).
Awesome time travel choice. Beethoven was amazing…able to make such beautiful music based on what he could feel.
This is powerful!
And what else should we do when we are in the presence of greatness? Bravo
Love the juxtaposition of music with deafness, sound with silence. Beautifully done. Thanks for linking up!
Touching piece of writing. Even as a child, I was moved an amazed by this story.
