天孤 Twilight casting over the tiny palm tree, Chennai Express India 2006

I was born to be alone..

I see the only tree over there..
a small but beautiful palm tree..
upright still with the long hairs..
Years ago a bird might drop a seed while she flew..
to initiate the life of the plant on the very spot.

What a miracle of life I see..
What a seemingly inadvertent but
extremely well self-maintaining ecosytem
furbished by the Invisible Hand.
