Bamboo

Bamboo thickly creaking,

Shaking thin leaves into crowded

choice-less penetrations. Fungi

feed on damp decayed canes

crumbling softly, fragmenting death,

thinning light between spaces.

Bare ground grows bald,

broken under moments.

Above, echoes flute-through sound-scapes,

shooting greens in splitting motion, swirling,

snapping spontaneous shifts. Breathless.

Underground, weighted roots yoke, and

shadows hide from mirrored service.

About Cynthia Pittmann

I am a writer, life-artist, friend to humans, animals and nature. I'm a published poet, and I post original photographs in the WordPress blog. I'm experimenting with a poetic form that is meant to be read (and seen) with music videos. In the Oasis Writing Link blog (blogger), I write about living in Puerto Rico, memoir vignettes, offer creative writing ideas, explore art and sometimes discuss books I'm reading. I have two ongoing non-fiction writing projects: I'm writing a memoir about my mothers who were murdered in a hate crime and an experiential book about learning and practicing creative writing. I am an openminded accepting person. I invite you to introduce yourself (and your areas of artistic interest to me) on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. ॐ
