What is the source of this sound?


Walking along the mountain path
A temple bell echoes across the valley
Amidst whispering pines and birdsong
What is the source of this sound?


  1. Some try to grasp the one bell,
    Others grasp at the myriad clappers,
    The trees and the birds can only express it.

  2. Drifting on the wind
    Sounds are but waves in the ocean of thought
    Ringing bells, Singing birds, sighing trees.

  3. Sitting here, trying to think up a clever answer, the school bell rang the hour.

    Enough said!
