There may be a more persistent plant than bamboo,
but I haven't met it.
This is an iPhone photo of a bamboo "runner."
Part scout, part spy, these roots spread
in all directions and are nearly impossible to dig up.
If you have a story of battling bamboo,
or perhaps surrendering to it,
We all could learn lessons
from this magnificent creature.
