Life Follows Function

Here’s a mishmash of images of Singapore, significant to myself.

Though the underlying theme here is about how we try to snatch something beautiful out of what is essentially functional.

Form follows function in much of Singapore.

Life, too, follows function: poetry is a luxury we cannot afford.

There is one way only. The rest is barred.

If you live with it long enough, it becomes beautiful.

Draw the curtains.

Poetry delayed is poetry denied.

We are at the zoo.

After the animal show – poetry is found after the event.

Reflections in the MRT.

The tree is obedient, bent in the wind.

Perhaps something is poetry after all…

Thanks for reading.

    Thanks for these images of home. It’s nice to see new perspectives on Singapore especially since I’ve been living outside of the country for the last couple of years.

      Yup – Singapore is no longer the same.
