Best Poem of Alven L. Robinson

The Bamboo

The bamboo feels the wind and bends
a harmony transcends
the temple of it home
the grove residing on its own
its lofty motive sown,
reaching towards the sky
through the graying eyes of mist
twisting with the storms
the typhoons borne across the seas
beneath new moons
Tsuki-yumi lagoons of light,
white mirrors to ancestral pleas
Shinto prayers heard through the eaves.

The Kami chanting in surrounds
falling mute on burial grounds
to whispered lantern glows
and distant shakuhachi tones - -
the bamboo seeing all it needs,
the failed ...

lay untouched beside her bed - -

the plastic cup a brew, a sorcery of view

now left behind, abandoned to a time,
