This wind chime inside my chest.

I can’t see it

but I can hear it.

This wind chime

made of seashells

hanging inside my chest.

at times,

to my Stillness

comes the wind of You.

And my chime song

is how I know of You

and of this wind chime

hanging inside my chest.

Capiz shells are known for their translucency and durability. They’re also know as Windowpane shells. They’re found in muddy waters. They make the most delicate sounds in the wind.

    They’re real? How wonderful, they’re transparent and delicate, natural and I can clearly hear them making their soft noise in my chest too….

      Yes, they’re real Kiki. I have a chandelier of Capiz shells. And just ordered some shells to make earrings with, for me and to give away.

      Glad they’re dancing in your chest too, you made my day.

    Beautiful thought. The chimes can be sweet music that brings comfort and joy within; and the shells have a special sound as if ringing out the life that once lived within. 🙂

    Hello Chicago … Cincinnati here via a Quebec lady (Dale). Congrats on being her latest Advent honoree. Welcome to the club. I’ve never thought about the feelings one can create as wind chimes within. A brilliant metaphor! Well done … Frank

  9. We could probably be friends. Quiet friends…who talk without words, and listen through and with our souls.
