Ring.


                                                 
                                               


                                                        Temple bells ring
                                         fragrant incense soothes the soul
                                                      devotees throng..

                                                    mom's kiss welcome.

  3. The first one is so divine and I can identify with the second one. A very different take of the prompt.

  4. That is wonderful way to wake and begin the day.

    Reminds me of a one word comment I made in a friends blog post on his narration of sights while he cycled at dawn around the city. It was vivid and typical morning life that he narrated. I wrote just one word in my comment." Venkateswara Suprabbhatham" and good Lord he was offended and deleted my comment from his post saying in private that my comment was trivial and did no justice to his post.

  5. Something very nice about the temple bells, and on the other hand an alarm in the early morning is so irritating.
    However, I think we can do without the temple bells but we can't do without an alarm.
    Very good Haiku.
