The wind chimes are fierce

This Easter morning.

We thought of church where we would be aliens

Unknown and suspect, sitting on hard wooden pews; trespassers.


The music of the spheres

Is not out in the black of night

Does not pass from shooting star to star

As tones of energy or an ocean of harmony

But is carried by the wind from the east

That tallies majesty

With the music of wind chimes

More glorious than any carillon this morning.


I am soothed by a spirit

Random and precise,

Almost tangible blustering by

piercing my heart

As it jangles the simple vehicle of

Hollow metal pipes

And awakes me to life.

“Wind Chimes”

September 12, 2010

From a book to be published:  “White Cranes of Heaven”.

Lady Nyo


Wind chimes peal in the night–

Tossed by high winds

racing round  eaves.

Dogs howl in the distance

Adding to a cacophony,

Discord upon discord

Like an orchestra gone mad,

Murdering the conductor

And throwing  tone poems

To a chortling Universe.
