Bamboo Dreams



Let me move into a bamboo forest.
Make my house of bamboo,
doors and windows open to the sky.
Let there be water trickling nearby,
and bird-song.
May it be always warm,
and may soft summer breezes
tip the tops of the trees
to and fro,
so all thought falls away
and there is only 
a deep green
silence.

posted belatedly for Real Toad's Transforming Fridays with Hannah: the Bamboo Forest. Was traveling Friday and am still exhausted. But imagining myself in other landscapes is right up my alley tonight!

  4. This is lovely, Sherry. I like how you set this up as a deep- seated need for the peace and serenity only nature can offer.

  5. A dream house full of tranquil positive energy. I love the fact that your definition of an ideal house is one that's open to nature. Great poem.
