Free Verse: Bamboo Grove

Bamboo Grove

Walking in a bamboo grove
searching for serenity
the rustling leaves
gave me the peace I sought
their shade from harsh light
refreshed my soul.
Basho would say
that harmony can be found
even in a crowded city.
I travelled to a park
among pine trees, palm fronds
and a bamboo grove
and was rewarded.

  1. There are bamboo groves in Italy?? Amazing. We are all searching for peace, and if you can find it in a bamboo grove, then hopefully you can find it in other places too. I love to see where your walks take you and the thoughts that you squirrel away on them.


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
