empty bell tower
preserves winter's silent night
pigeons roost in peace
tinkling wind chimes on bare tree
call me to meditation 



Author Notes

I thank everyone who encouraged me to write my first tanka which I began on February 5 when I passed wind chimes on the way to a church which lacked bells.
