You Are My Poetry

Day 25 of 30: Think of any word. Search it on google images. Write something inspired by the 11th image. I have to admit that I am cheating for this post. I think of a word ‘Palace’ and images of palaces came up before me. I couldn’t write anything inspired by it, but I remember … More You Are My Poetry

Shine

The sun plays hide and seek Shy away Hiding between the leaves. Its flickering rays Escaping between my fingers   And I hear the chirping of birds The flowing river The gurgling water near the spring. Like the sound of little girls giggling Looking at this lost beautiful strange thing.   Alone, there, he wanders … More Shine

Dalam Sunyi

Memesona perjaka muda yang hatinya dilanda duka kala rindu menggoda. Sang surya lelah mengantuk tergelincir, terduduk, jatuh dari ufuk. Sambil membungkuk memungut pendar hingga nanti lama-lama pudar. Terkikik, sang … More Negeri di Atas Awan
