As The Bamboos Sway: Safe from the Chaos of the Outside World

Yesterday I sat by a cluster of fountains. The main center spout spurted at least 10 feet high, reaching for the midmorning clouds dotting the azure skies. The rest, a dozen of them, swayed with equal reach of at least five feet around the center.
