Visit Malaysia Year Haiku - Gua Bewah (Tasiky Kenyir, Trengganu) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Gua Bewah
nature builds a gem corner
for meditation

Gua Bewah treasure
our torches light up at the sight
of a little cockroach

Gua Bewah
for the first time we get excited over
a cockroach's backside

Gua Bewah
at a quiet corner in a pool of water
a crab stiller than stone

Gua Bewah
excavators excite us with a
16,000 year old remains of a man

Gua Bewah
the power of birds and batsall these cili api plants fronting the cave

Gua Bewah in Taman Negara in Trengganu is said to be the only place to see the blue backed cockroach. The back ie, near its anus
is blue in colour. We saw one of the cockroaches snatching a a fallen wing of a bat to eat. There is one corner that looks so ideal for meditation.
