Unexpected Bells

‘The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of flowers.’ Matsuo Basho

Silence
drips
into the sodden
solitude
of a deep druidic wood,
goose-pimple chilled
and tangle wild.
All at once,
the path Is broken
by a sunny glade
scattered with spikes
of new nettle growth
and, ringing through the leafy light,
fronds of brash bluebells
and thrush-song
resound with joy in their tree temple.
