When Footsteps Stray

It saddens me to say,
when flowers turn grey,
and footsteps will stray,
in thousand miles away,
but I will always bear,
our friendship, a souvenir,
in my heart, your name stays.

When Beauty Fades

I wish the petals of this rose will always stay beautiful and remain in place in nature's amazing arrangements. But when the time comes, it can't hold itself anymore ; the petals will drop one by one leaving the stem which slowly turns brown but the thorns will still prick. Nevertheless,  its sweet scent lingers in the air.

Let the rain hit the roof,
But where are the chirpy birds,
Unbalanced melody.

When nature sings,

Looking Beyond

In hazy distance,
Sudden images emerge,
The future's story.


*I don't know whether this makes sense or not but I feel like writing a Haiku today. I have been trying to write something better than this but my mind is quite blank!

A heart so stone-cold,
Melts in the embers of love,
A new phase of life.

I find solace above me,
A striking rainbow.

If Monday is colorful,
I'd dare to take out all the blues,
Let other colors brighten up the day!


*It's Tuesday! I wrote this when thinking of Monday's blues.

The complete strangers,
The eyes meet, just a second,
Smiles break the silence.

Quote : Youth

"Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.

Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20. Nobody grows old by the number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.

Years may wrinkle in the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust. Whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being's heart the lure of wonder, the unfailing childlike appetite of what's next and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station : so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the Infinite, so long are you young.

When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old, even at 20, but as long as your aerials are up, to catch the waves of optimism, there is hope you may die young at 80."

                                                                        - Samuel Ullman

Reading the above quote, do you feel inspired? I do! And this quote is what I have on my table at work. I don't have to elaborate further, everything is mentioned in it about what real youth is.

A Little But A Lot

A liitle thank you means a lot,
My hands are too small to hold it,
In the closet of my heart, I keep it.

A little time spent is quality time,
It means more than the entire time,
A minute's banter, a lasting impact.

A little thought is good thought,
Friendship blooms from little thought,
Its beauty is immeasurable.

With gratitude,

The Tale : Puteri Santubong

The tale of Princesses Santubong and Sejinjang,
Beautiful princesses in heaven, Kayangan Sakti,
Whose rare beauty was beyond compare,
But Santubong the prettiest of them two.

If love could bring happiness and joy,
So could it bring destruction and death,
The tale of siblings who became enemies,
Over a fight for a prince's heart.

In the kingdom of Kayangan Sakti,
The Dewa ordered Sejinjang to go to earth,
To a place called Land of the Hornbill,
Where there was trouble to no end.

Princess Sejinjang became the rightful ruler,
Her responsibility  to bring peace and order,
All her subjects pledged their loyalty,
So in peace they lived but awhile.

The princess loved pounding paddy everyday,
Engrossed in her passion, her duty neglected,
Once again, trouble occured, fighting was everywhere,
Dewa was astonished on seeing it happened.

Since on earth, not a news was  from Sejinjang,
The Dewa decided to send Princess Santubong,
To aid her sister to restore peace again,
Down to the magnificient land she went.

The siblings were glad to see each other,
Before long, trouble occured between them,
Both in love with  handsome Prince Murud,
So eager, neither  wanted to be defeated.

Now, the fight was between the princesses,
Jealousy and hatred seen on their faces,
Prince Murud chose pretty Princess Santubong,
Furious Sejinjang attacked her without mercy.

The Dewa witnessed the whole incident,
Furious, his orders were not carried out,
In anger, he pronounced a mighty curse,
In a flash of lightening, it all happened.

Princess Santubong turned into Gunung Santubong,
Princess Sejinjang turned into Pulau Kera,
Prince Murud turned into Gunung Murud,
A tragic end to a love triangle.

*Puteri Santubong is one of  Malaysian popular folktales.
I wasn't able to tell it in details. What I wrote are free verses.
The mountains and island exist in Sarawak.

Some translations :
Puteri = Princess
Dewa = God/Deity
Kayangan = Heaven
Gunung = Mountain
Pulau = Island
Kera = Monkey

Silent Stories

Windows to the soul,
Unfolding silent stories,
Known by those who see.
