Unesco Heritage Site Haiku - The Western Ghats, India - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

dusk at Western Ghats
the day begins for some
ends for some

dusk at Western Ghats
the shrills, trills,
squeals, and squawks

dusk at Western Ghats
a meditative sky and forest
of all the chakras

dawn at Western Ghats
a pulsating forest of chirps,
shrills, and trills

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The Western Ghats mountain chain is older than the Himalayas and is recognised as one of the world's eight 'hottest hotspots' of biological diversity. Its high mountain forests influence the Indian monsoon weather system and for this reason the Western Ghats are home to many species of wildlife that are not found anywhere else in the world, including at least 325 globally threatened flora, fauna, bird, amphibian, reptile and fish species.
