evening bell--
even the clouds convene
at the temple

I enjoyed these very much - once again a bow to the poets. There is something about church or temple bells that makes you stop and pay attention to the moment, especially from afar.

Thanks so much ... I'm thinking that, when it comes to temple bells, the butterfly would agree:

best, Don

Thanks Don for these links - I just kept reading back, back, and further back. I liked Billy Collin's poem quite a bit - yes, meditative.
Mary - again
