Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today we have Symbiotic (provided by Sam Edge) to write haiku about. I am not familiar with this word, so I had to sought it out. I found the following meaning or synonyms: harmonious, interdependent and united. The first thing which came in mind was the Mistletoe and I thought to use that for this episode of Carpe Diem. So let me first tell you a bit more about the Mistletoe.
|Mistletoe on Silver Birch|
Mistletoe is the common name for obligate hemi-parasitic plants in several families in the order Santalales. These plants attach to and penetrate the branches of a tree or shrub by a structure called the haustorium, through which they absorb water and nutrients from the host plant.
