Travel Amazon Haiku - Caught In The River - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Amazon
caught in the river
a shimmering tropical forest

Amazon
the insect world drones
us out

Amazon
between the tinkles in the river
the insects' shrill

Amazon
one whole dayh the river and the insects
play out their songs

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
