Like a bamboo, man sways, bends and dances to the challenges of life. An attempt to capture its gracefulness and resiliency, nature's masterpiece.







Cool and gentle winds


Make my body softly sway











And bathe in sunbeams!



(Written by: Sheri C. Uy 12/28/07)

A refreshing haiku. I like the line "...And bathe in sunbeams!" One can visualize the wind gently blowing on a bamboo tree making it sway between the bright rays of the sun, like a graceful dancer. Well done, Sheri.

Happy New Year,

This is a vivid image that dances into the mind and makes the reader see the willowy form in gausey silky fabrics doing a solo dance to the music of the wind. Beautiful.
