MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 423: LAW OF JUNGLE

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 423: LAW OF JUNGLE

 

cling and crouches high

on other tree canopy

slowly strangle host

 

roots snake down to soil

tango and twist along trunk

sucks out food supply

 

survival supreme

fittest are not the fairest

wind on winners’ right

 

seeds fly by rare chance

fair to the impoverished

strangler, not sinner

 

Note:

A stroll at Singapore Botanical Garden is always an  experience par excellence. I have been there many times, and it is always refreshing to visit, This morning we spent our time in The Tropical Rainforest. I was inspired by the sight and story of Stranglers Fig. The haiku is to mark that memory.

Note:

This poetry is about power (sex, money, time) in dyad relate. Every household needs a circuitry plan and phase control as safeguard. Some may have bigger wire in their fuse ampere, but the principles of wire connectivity are still the same. The adrenalin and testosterone have varying levels of activity and limitation; fear, flight and freeze reactions are primitive and time phase, with its own advantage and limitation. A gain in one aspect may be a lost or surrender in another. We learn to switch off some in order to switch on another want (often confuse with need). This is to prevent over heating.
