Fair Dinkum Haiku 065: Stalagmites.

In spacious grotto.
Stalagmites spring from the ground.
Like gnarled sentinels.

Very nice!

Visited some cave up in Tennessee once and that is exactly what they look like.

stalagmites and stalactites, seen them, admired them, but never thought to sing a haiku for them.

G' Day BEACH BUM: Many years ago i visited a cave in the Blue Mountains NSW and took a tour through the caves :-).

G' Day FRIKO: It seemed like a good idea at the time :-).

Took me AGES to learn the difference btw stalagmites and stalactites when I was young! Maybe that's why I've always been fascinated by them - and therefore love this tribute!!

G' Day RED: They are confusing until you work out which is which :-).
