The Chime

An old salvaged heavy gauge four by four steel fence post, makes an excellent chime producing a haunting solitary ring that resonates as if from afar, be it somewhere in the Himalayan mountains, or perhaps Shangri-La since it's just my imagination. Under gentle delta breezes which are prevalent around our neighborhood, it's solitary ring is a singular hollow metal old world sound. Unlike more refined musical chimes or the deep rich dong of a heavy bell, it's metallic sounds harken of distance landscapes, real or imagined, bringing tranquility if you yield to its resonances.
