Vietnam Travel Haiku - Mekong In My Hand - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

from my five fingers, a splash
of seven nations

dipping my hand into mekong
to feel the flow
of seven nations

a swish of my hand
and seven nations splash

a swish of my hand six nations
sparkle in the light

the grace of buddha flows into
seven territories

dropp by drop
the flow of seven nations
from my hand

The Mekong trudges through Tibet, Yunnan, Myamar, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos before going out to sea through Vietnam. The Mekong is one of the richest plains in Asia producing much rice for the world.
I placed a little bit of the water in my hand and feel the flow of six nations. I too splashed the water below our boat.
