Travel Amazon Haiku - Caught in the River


Amazon
caught in the river
a shimmering tropical forest

Amazon
the insect world drones
us out

Amazon
peeking through the forest
the sky

Amazon rainforest
waving and peeking at us
the sky

American Rainforest
the sky peeks at us through
a million million leafy gaps

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
