人類身邊總有植物,被輕視的、被刻意誇大的、頑強的、馴服的—大樹、鮮花、攀藤、菌類。

飯桌上的白米、瓜菜、蔬果、菇菌等食物;庭園中的繁花、籬笆、矮叢等觀賞植物,植物彷如空氣一樣,總在我們身旁。

但城市為了發展,砍樹、殺草、堆土,剷走了綠意,築起了灰牆。

植物無言,即使被砍被殺,依然沉默。

人類大興土木,建起高樓,拔起城市,舉目所見皆為人工之物,但各類飛花、飄種、浮葉早就傾巢而出,在渠蓋上、石磚間、土牆中靜候,一遇合適氣温、充足雨水,即蓬勃生長,就在我們最不經意間,茂盛展開。

 

我們不在,他們仍能生存

但他們不在,我們早就滅絕 

這就是不斷無言被砍,也繼續沉默再生的植物

 

謹致綠意

 

There is always plant around human. The one who being scorned, being exaggerated, tough and tamed like the tree, flowers, vine and fungus.

Food like rice, vegetables, fruits, mushrooms; ornamental plants flowers, fence and shrub are just like air around us.

Plant won’t talk even if a saw is cut into its barks. Plant just silently killed by human for city development and never speaks a word. Human builds up walls to separate nature and live in a man-made environment. And plant wait on the drain cover, between the walls and in the bricks for a suitable temperature and enough moisture and growing luxuriantly in the most inadvertently moment.

 

They can live without us

But we can’t live without them

That is the plant who being killed silently and keep growing in tacit.

 

Salute to the greens.

黃鴨花  2013年8月

當時黃鴨令全城狂熱,連酒店也湊興,弄了隻新鮮黃鴨花裝飾。

細看每朵黃花,都萬箭穿心地插了一條鐵線,以固定花形,黃花無言,人卻感痛。

Yellow Duckling Flowers  August 2013

The whole city was crazy about the yellow duckling and the hotel made a big yellow duck with fresh flowers as decoration.

Every flower was inserted a wire to fix the shape. The yellow flowers said nothing but I felt pain.

自種菌  2011年7月於香港

馴服的菌類。

只要人類提供合適的器皿、氣温、濕度、水份,菌類就乖乖生長,成熟後還能收割為糧食,馴服。

 

My fungus   July 2011 in Hong Kong

A tamed fungus.

The fungus would grow if provided a suitable container, temperature, moisture and water. It can be harvested once it mature, what a tamed plant.
