MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 459: SISYPHEAN STRUGGLE

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 459: SISYPHEAN STRUGGLE

toil and torture task

trap into senseless routine

hapless hard labour

Woodcut style image of a man in business suit rolling a giant coin up a hill.

spell of magic myth

reverse the unrewarding

small pay to role play

walk up to water

wish fulfilling flower, pails

with bountiful bliss

    I love your perspective for this photo. Thank you. We often toil, doing senseless routines.

      Modern work and life are a lot of habits and routine. If we think outside the box, then we walk out of the spell and curse. Often we fall into another loop of toil. Instead of search for fame and gain, better we pursue excellence in our best ability.

        It is so. There’s nothing wrong with habits and rountine, esp at our age. We only have to watch our mind in the process e.g. the rewards, blame etc.
