Birds and Bells

  
No matter the weather

be it too wet

or too warm.

No matter the inner

atmosphere

be it overwhelming sadness

fear

or exhilarating discovery

joy;

Whatever the mood

we are accompanied

before day breaks 

through

the dark leaves

by the tuning swell of

birds, 

throaty, 

sweet and light.

And

with steady

clock-like comfort,

church bells 

chime

such full, sky-vibrating tones

that you know,

You know,

you are not

Alone.

One thought on “Birds and Bells

  1. Reminds me of seminary when the chimes would ring out across the countryside…my room mate was one of those, at that time, who literally rang the bells. Fond memories of those gracious moments.
