Day Nineteen

BAMBOOS

The wind blows softly
Bamboos swaying so carefree
Let's join the gaiety!

An unyielding spear
One with nature, one with self
Pity the root rots

  • The photo and first haiku is brokemancode's while the second was inspired from his.

I loved both of them. They seem a conversation between an optimist and the pessimist. I lived in Japan for a bit and loved the sound the bamboo forest made in the wind. Thank you for bringing that back for me. I have also accepted the 30 day haiku challenge. So far I have two. Be very pleased if you popped in a took a look. I am hoping to build community and make some friends among other poets and haiku lovers. Pryde

Mmm definitely a serene scene with the wind rustling through the bamboo!
I'll swing by your haiku next time I'm on the computer!
Thank you for dropping by!
