distant bells

Clear and universal, sounds
of distant bells, admonitions
don’t fall off a cliff
while carrying your guitar
pain may be unbearable
you may lose your voice, music
you may prefer to bundle your emotions
or carry them separately
listen to bears, discern
hidden traps, quicksand
stop now and then under a shady tree
mountain tops are steeped climb
get excited like the bees
visit meadows, picnic spread,
you may try to thrive on crumbs
get plenty of photos, have a hearty laugh,
laughter will carry you to all the continents,
the remotest corners of joy.
