Temple Bells

Bells ring out across the valley from the temple on the hill
Disturbing sleeping lovers cosy in one another’s arms
They smile and go back to sleep to dream of their wedding day

Congratulations on your winning sijo, Jack. Congratulations also on being named Poet of the Month by Karen in Whispers. I stopped by and left check marks but have not figured out how to get my comments to stick there. It's frustrating. Love, joyce

It seems the reverence of this world has taken a back seat in this regard.
