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.

A la vie!

When life gets tough
Laugh at it.
When you have no clue of
What it brings,
Make fun of it.
You can always find a reason
To smile and cheer,
Or just goofing around.
A la vie!

The Majestic Merapi

Standing tall and still
Like a king overpowering the land,
With the look to kill
In silence…

The land submits,
The people admire,
Such magnificent summit
In its wait to blurt the fire!

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.

Why do they say “Get well soon”?

Why do they say “Get well soon”?

Because there’s not much to enjoy in this room…

A prison of its kind, this room…

Chain you down,

So you can rest…

The only luxury you can have in this room…

Is the love and care,

And the joy brought forth

By the ones who love you.

Get well soon, Mama!

 

Silhouettes of twilight

When darkness crawls down,
Only silhouettes are shown,
At the very sight of my own.

Misty,
Elegant,
Pieces of black
Over deep blue,
Ornaments of twilight.

Such poise
Leave us with no choice,
But to be lulled
By the voice of the night…
