For Real Toads, as I was inspired by the Matsuo Basho quote. I didn’t really incorporate any of the photos, though. This is also for NaPoWriMo day 18.
“The temple bell stops, but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.” — Matsuo Basho
Palm Sunday: We heard it read that, though some wished to rebuke the jubilant crowd, Jesus said:
“If these were silent, even the stones would cry out!”
Later, the words of consecration said, the Eucharist elevated, the bells ring — and even when they stop, God’s presence causes souls to sing.
