The Thrum

It is before
the bell strikes
that I am
struck

by the sound
a bright thrum
through my
heart

perfect and
unbroken

that remains
long after

solid, singing
notes have
come and
gone

long after
the breath

-the last one

I wrote this with a meditation bell in mind. I think it could also be about being struck by an idea or insight.
