The bells ring and I get sad-
They remind me of quiet times
When I never doubted how beautiful it all was,
All of it, all around me.
I walked for hours, smelled the jasmine, watched the rain clouds,
Took in the sunsets, fully alive
Fully bathed in Light.
Those days are gone
And now the bells ring and when I raise my eyes
The skies are blue, but silent.
