Travel Taiwan Haiku - Sun Moon Lake


Sun Moon Lake
gently, gracefully in the breeze
a chinese painting lesson

Sun Moon Lake
casting their nets over the water
two giant spiders

Sun Moon Lake
gently, gracefully dispenses
a chinese painting lesson

Sun Moon Lake
a scroll of Chinese painting
breeze, hills, water come alive

Sun Moon Lake
the water takes my soul
the mountains my breath

art imitates life?
life imitates art?
the answer echoes
clear in its crystal clear water
Sun Moon Lake

The Sun Moon Lake near Taichung is really a sight to behold. From the Plum Garden you can see the large expanse of the lake and the mountains around. It unfolds water and greenery of the hills around
a scroll of Chinese painting comes alive. It would be a great miss if you visit Taiwan and do not come here to cruise as well as take in the breathtaking view.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
