Bamboo - a digital image by T Newfields
Knowing how to bend without breaking &
sway when earth is quaking
bamboo wisdom is deep

Knowing when to send forth roots &
focus power through shoots
bamboo strength is amazing

Hearing bamboos rustle
is perfect poetry &
touching fresh bamboo hairs
is ultimate sensuality
An-Yi:   (sighing) This poem stinks of Taoism.
Daiki:   (sniffing comically ). Really? I don't smell anything odd.
Bhäraté:   (laughing). Yeah, perhaps you are too dull?
Chariya:   I think that An-Yi is saying that too much ideology can taint our experience.
