Silent Bells

Fading memories of past lives linger
Moving in rhythm to the falling snow
Spectres whisper mournful prayers
Shadows lost in unending procession
Cloister walls weep with sadness
Silent bells echo the end of time

Reflective Pools

A Stillness Echoes

A moonlit shower bursts overhead
Reflective pools collect memories
Shadows flicker as streetlights dim
Retreating into dark corners unseen

A weary traveller moves aimlessly
Thoughts blur into the silent haze
Time stretches with every footstep
A stillness echoes as ghosts linger
