bamboo


we, arched like rocks, kept close to the ground
tending, digging deep in earth
weaving sinuous roots into strong cloth
spending our efforts on the bast fibres
which armour the capillary flow of life
to the top.
they, swaying high in the winds
tilting quixotically to the sun
a brief dripping blossom
promises everything
again.
