Bells

peal in raucous victory
chime a noon-time angelus
clang loud children back to school
announce the hour upon a ship
graph a normal distribution
style the levi’s bottom flare
ring upon a guest’s arrival
tinkle at the butler’s call
and when the journey
comes to end,
toll for thee

In reponse to the Daily Post Photo Challenge: Victory. Three photos from our Panama Canal Cruise: hanging bells in the courtyard outside the Museum of the Inquisition in Cartegena, Colombia; and the cathedral’s bell tower in Puerto Vallarta, with the sun making a perfect halo around the cross. Ship’s bell from our Baltic Cruise.

    Your beautiful images here in both word and form are chiming together…
    I have a lovely melody in my head this morning, thanks to you Lillian.
    Happy Tuesday

      Thank you so much, AnnMarie. I have been remiss in my reading these past few days — trying to get things done prior to our Thanksgiving trip to Chicago. Bring Christmas gifts so knitting away here! Hopefull will catch up with my reading tomorrow evening — yours will be the first to visit!
