poem 詩


Making goulash
we don’t talk much,
Daddy and me.

“The talking’s in the making, son,”
he smiles.
I see what he means.

It’s in the knife
meeting the beef,

in the dancing of potatoes
as they turn in the water,
in the singing
of boiling soup in the pot.

There are enough words
in the way
Daddy teaches me his famous dish
and the way he hugs me
when we finish.

Making goulash
we don’t talk much,
Daddy and me,

but everything is said.

male 雄性  energy 能量

Animals have their special ways to deal with hard times in nature. The superb fairy-wren, one kind of bright-blue bird in Australia, is one example. This year, a ten-year study showed that this small bird has eggs of different sizes in different kinds of weather. When the weather is hot and dry, there is less food for young superb fairy-wrens, and they die easily. So the mother bird will make larger eggs to help her babies grow stronger inside before they break out of the eggs into the “hungry” world.


  However, not all mother birds are able to do this trick. Only those with at least one male child can. When the weather is “good,” the mother will make smaller eggs, and her sons will bring food back for their baby brothers and sisters from the eggs. With her sons’ help, the mother can save more energy to make larger eggs when the weather is bad. Isn’t this amazing?
