The Bell Keeper

Trifextra: Week Fifty-Nine

Sacred bells ring out, the people scatter.

High ground’s safety sought, the hurried steps.

Mist wave falls, the utter silence follows.

Loss and heartbreak, the heavy toll.

Cautious ones emerge, the city renewed.

by Nicholas Byrley

Written for the Trifectra Writing Challenge. The photo was a fun one, shame it was limited to thirty three words. I had a lot of fun reading the other entries too. Anyone else know of challenges/prompts like this?
