20 July 2014 — #haiku

damp summer day
intruder in the forest
bamboo shoots

– Today’s haiku was inspired by the feeling I had from the Carpe Diem inspiration haiku, which was “something being out of place”. I saw these bamboo shoots today on my hike through the urban forest. They were stunning, but I was sad to see them because they grow very fast and are an invasive plant here in Seattle.
