A Haiku For Each Country Project - Taiwan


101 Taipei Tower
solidly planted -
the island's pride

101 Taipei Tower
our feet cannot take us where
our eyes could stretch

101 Taipei Tower
we walk round Taipei
in some five minutes

101 Taipei Tower
here and there insects
aiming to be higher
(perched outside the windows)

101 Taipei Tower
mountains, hills, river, lake and
legends link us to the past
