    Lauren –

    Simply delicious words.

    We will miss you each time our meditation bell rings at WILII gatherings. Should you ever be able to just drop in for one Friday free write, we would love to have you join us!

    Ah, two 'metalic' sounds, that of the bell, that of the starlings, and the playfulness that the starlings would be intrigued by the 'new sound' that is also an old sound.

    Delightful haiku!

    warm regards,

    Alan, With Words
