Hello or Good-bye?© by walela

Currently unavailable for purchase



Are these chimes ringing in sweet music or is it a death toll?
I hear only the chiming, but it already stirs my soul.
I listen intently, because it signals my mindset.
I want to be happy; I do not want to fret.
Do I shiver from excitement or from fear and dread?
Is my heart light as a feather or heavy as lead?
Will I have to deal with butterflies in my stomach or a lump in my throat?
The sounding of the chimes is a moment to denote.
Maybe I should just put up my hand and silence the tune
Then I won’t know if my heart will be gently touched or roughly hewn.

Walela

I love the sound of a distant train whistle, the sound of rain on fallen leaves, the sound of a whippoorwill, a crackling fire, a walk in the fog, cooing doves, clouds…..and ice cream.
