From Bell to Bell
We are knots in the wood of time. Between us flow a bow, an open door, a benediction, all offset by the steady clicking second hand. The clock unfolds its prayer, its story of this very place, the people of the tolling bell, the ancient echo of reconciled love, of hatred unmasked and overcome by surrender, by humble acceptance, by our destiny.
Swirling fields of mystery connect us, from tree through forests spanning planetary realms untold, electric timeline lapse of photographs in plain quiescent view, from lifelong search to lifeblood longing for essential nourishment to hyphenated pause, reflecting in an open mind, the moon a stabilizing wonder, an unseen turn from saving grace to futuristic totem of a peaceful plenitude.
