3D (GA's) Aquatic plant

I'm constantly on the two-fold disaster in Burma, trying to not post on that though, to avoid repetition. It's just that reminds me so closely to the dictatorship times in Argentina that I just can't take it off my mind. Many people "torn from their root like a water-plant in autumn"...

My heritage lost through disorder and famine,
My brothers and sisters flung eastward and westward,
My fields and gardens wrecked by the war,
My own flesh and blood become scum of the street,
I moan to my shadow like a lone-wandering wildgoose,
I am torn from my root like a water-plant in autumn:
I gaze at the moon, and my tears run down
For hearts, in five places, all sick with one wish.

Bai JuYi, "To my brothers and sisters adrift in troubled times".
