Mute Man – TLT #8

He’s a great observationalist who tells stories during his voyages – painted tales of nature that are untouched by time and the truths that go unnoticed in commoners life – all through his music.

When he rests his chin on the fiddle and starts moving the bow over the strings of his violin, the music emerging from the instrument as a result of friction is one of those things that we can’t see but still feel the heavenly touch.

Even after listening to the tranquil sound of his music and experiencing its depth, people call him dumb, accounting for the words he never spoke since birth.


This is a response post to the ‘Three Line Tales by Sonya.

    I don’t like that the word dumb is used for people who cannot talk. It’s so mean. This is beautifully written Anisha

      It’s so thoughtful of you to point out the particular word, Jude. That’s exactly what I meant in the last sentence. Calling them mute seems considerably better in my opinion.

      Thank you so much! ❣
