Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Notes On A Mission

I had been my whole life a bell.
Annie Dillard
The lunch bell

The dismissal bell
Wedding bells
And doorbells
Sleigh bells
and church bells
    Edgar Allen Poe wrote:
How it swells!
                  How it dwells
            On the Future! how it tells
            Of the rapture that impels
          To the swinging and the ringing
            Of the bells, bells, bells,
          Of the bells, bells, bells,bells,
                  Bells, bells, bells-
  To the rhyming and the chiming of the bells!
You know, when you think about it...life does have a certain ring to it.
and that's poetiquejustis

If I speak in the languages of humans and angels but have no love,
 I have become a reverberating gong or a clashing cymbal. 
I Corinthians 13:1

Dedicated to the Mission at San Juan Capistrano where the bells will ring and the swallows will return this weekend.
