Water falling through bamboo should be a JOYFUL sound. I do love the tone of bamboo chimes in wind.

I've been invited to a luncheon next month. The hostess asked each of us to bring a poem. So I thought a haiku would be the perfect offering - short, simple, yet perfect. I've been on line searching for the best haiku. I was so surprised to read your post and the wonderful bamboo haiku. Maybe I'll choose that one. Thanks.

Harusame*, cool
Lightening flashes, thunder rolls
Peaceful deep within
*harusame: clear thin noodles evocative of spring rain - haru=spring, ame=rain
