A bamboo song

A Bamboo song

welcome the whisper of the wind 
with its peaceful smiles
the swaying twigs
perform a beautiful song
and provide the encouragement 
the leaves dancing in the rush of joys

evoke the playful spirit
and eliminate the worry
though its branches and roots
are small and weak

the wind was blowing hard
its strong rods remained firmly
swinging in the shade of the foliage

soaring higher
with its strong confidence
donated a million of gratitude
no room for the feeling of envy to pass by
no chance for a glance
on the beauty of another tree

it remained in its own beauty
even without a decorated flowers or fruits

contributed itself 
to entertain through its peacefulness
provided shade on the surrounding
gave a ride across the ocean of difficulties

beautiful leaves
graceful branches
compactness roots
solid stem
lead the bamboo orchestra with its passion
and perform the beautiful song
the bamboo song

in the rhythm of its silence
there is a sense of peacefulness
