Haikus Written in Vietnam.

Haikus Written In Vietnam.

Under blood stained cloud,

I hear them eating the walls,

The geckos cackle.

Sun sets on Ho Tay,

Petals fly in the warm wind,

Where are you at now?

Hoan Kiem in the rain,

Weeping Willows bow to drink,

Missing the turtle.

(Tay Ho is West Lake, Hoan Kiem is the area around the Lake of The Reclaimed Sword, both in Hanoi.)
