JOY

JOY

Chinking of bells
musical bells
like the tinkering
of elves in a workshop
but it’s not little elves
and they’re not in a workshop per se

I’m hearing bells
from musicians
or spiritual practitioners
or both

They’re chinking bells
and it’s like pleasant
knocking on my ears
asking, “are you here,
can you be here?”

What can bring me
more into the joy
in the present
moment
than a bell?

There’s a reason people say,
“I hear you, clear as a bell.”

The other day
I turned my key in the door
and rotated the doorknob

It was Sunday and it happened
to be at the time to announce
church service,
and as I turned the knob…
church bells chimed!

And I felt part of
this big clock
this big Sunday instrument
glad for the availability of
happy sunny sobriety
humane society
