Giant Bamboo


Giant Bamboo

1

Wind Catcher

Its leaves are catching

the wind, this giant bamboo culm,

but in ancient times

it would have caught it differently,

fixed to mast and sail as a boom.

New Voice

Since being sawn

to shorter lengths and strung up,

the giant bamboo

speaks not in lofty rustlings

but in low chimes and chunkings.
