O Night…

O night,
Grant me words,
Warm enough to write
All the dreams and desire
Long lost and gone,
Back to inspire
The soul summoned.

O night,
Blow the phrases
Through the window,
Into the heart
Hidden in cold spaces
Threading sentences
To throw…

Serenity

Serenity warms the morning
With the sweet song of the sun,
And the smooth swing of the trees.

One finds the beauty of the day
in serenity,
One embraces the strength of the day
through serenity.

One fine morning at Pentingsari Village, Yogyakarta

Half marathon

The road we must run through
Might be long,
With uphill and downhill,
Straight ways and turns.
We run alone,
Sometimes with friends along,
It could be tough,
Tiring
And boring.
We groan upon pain and exhaustion,
We cheer upon seeing fellow runners.

The thing
That may keep you running
Heading to the finish ribbon,
Is enjoying the view along the road.

You being you

You being you,
Are like the ray of light,
Shining,
Brightens the space
You are in.

You being you,
Spark the delight
Which no other has,
For you are
One of a kind!

A birthday poem for my baby sister

You are the littlest

But never the least

The baby sister

But not babyish at all.

 

The course of life has taught you well

To stand still in the midst of the storm,

And to peacefully dwell

In the midst of your beloved swarm,

 

Here in the house of your beloved,

There is abundance of love,

And you never run out of it,

For that’s all that we can give.
