A Grove Of Bamboo


Sprouting from the womb of the fervent earth
Teasing the heavens with a sway of her girth
The strapping beauty with long lithe stems
Gleaming like imperial topaz, stalks coated in gems
She awakes the pouts of Aeolus with her serenading tune
As she clambers to kiss the protruding lips of Helios in his loon
Maddening is the hemorrhagic love of a leprechaun star
As veils of topaz converge with golden waves from afar
Nuances of saturnalia in her flamboyant festivities of color
As the azure curtain prostrates to her undying valor
Steady fidelity is her staunch forte, nepotism her flaw
Chuckling with her sisters in a boisterous guffaw
As rippling is her leafy veneer to the orgasmic Aeolus
As Helios gazes from afar winking through the walls of Cumulus
She reposes in the arms of twilight in the serenity of the passing breeze
As human predators eye a hearty giant slumbering in peace
Yet she is unfazed as unguarded is her heart's true anthem
As she draws nature's hobos towards her pacifying mansion
Oh the beauty of altruistic life in the midst of nature's capital
As a grove of bamboo lavishes kindness, a love supremely intangible
