glistens with moisture-
The above haiku was inspired by the line “suggestion of receptiveness” in the book “Botany of Desire” by Michael Pollan. The book is a good treatise on natural and artificial selection with the use of folklore, legends and poetic prose.
The underlying question Mr. Pollan is posing asking is who is influencing who, us or the plants. I highly recommend this book to those who want to further understand the Buddhist concepts of interdependence and interconnectedness.
