Bamboo Against The Sky - Poem by Marilyn Lott

I was taking a walk the other night
The sky was a brilliant orange-red
I should have retired already
But I was takin’ a stroll instead

The quiet was overwhelming
And as the sky filled with color
I pressed my camera to my eye
For it was a chance like no other

But what added to the scene
Was bamboo stalks tall and stout
Looming up into the sky
Beauty was what it was all about

The sweet smell of hay fields
Dark pools of country ponds
Red dirt roads and lonesome barns
Are some of the things I’m fond

Hills and broken down fences
Also scenes my camera wants to try
But this time I was quite awestruck
Seeing Bamboo against the sky!
