Hyaena Haiku

Hyaenas, by Martiros Sergejewitsch Saryan

Hyaenas, by Martiros Sergejewitsch Saryan, 1909

Hyena by Saryan:

bone crusher, top scavenger

do  you laugh or howl?

(h/t to the fauve hyaenas of Martiros Sergejewitsch Sarjan, Armenian painter. State Russian Museum)

“Nature’s ways are wonderful and unfathomable. The grain swells in the soil, the sprout grows and flowers when the time comes and then it bears new fruit and so does not die. We are like grain. We never die because we are One with Nature. To understand this is to comprehend Immortality—the Apotheosis of the Human Race. It is with this conviction that I have lived my Life. My Life is a store of my experience, a Life of aspirations, sorrows, joys and triumphs. (M. Saryan)

Life is an island. People come out of the sea, cross the island, and return to the sea. But this short life is long and beautiful. In getting to know nature man exalts the wonder and beauty of life”(M. Saryan, from Wikipedia)
