The Mission Bell

Photo from MS clip art gallery

a whiff of smoke arrives in the cool breeze
with the melancholy sound of the mission bell
the bell tolls for the past, and for the future
warning lingers in its lonely sound
heed the lessons of the past
to mend the promise of the future

a warning lingers
as the mission bell tolls clear
heed past, mend future


  1. You've approached the mission bell theme from a different angle than I did. Somehow, our efforts complement each other!
