Don't allow even a second

A measure of perseverance
to let it off, gone for ever
Never let it disturb you
not even a slightest tap
not even a slightest hum
not even a second

that's you


walk through wood

It was silence  
as I walk through wood
audible only the breaking of leaves
and my own breath.

the realisation that I am alive
among the many lives and deaths
embodied within the plane
of Oneness.

remember what u say

and that's not to be displayed
not ever.
it is not much of an effort
to pull out from the bottom of heart
in it's burial place.

Puisi buat Lienn

sudah pandai berbisik
merapat mulut kecil ke telinga
mengeluar bait-bait kecil
walau sukar dikait mencantum
ada sedikit imbas nakal
mengusik ummi
sambil memaut ayah.

feeling bad

not to be seen as nonchalant
i take all things within strides
as i glide
within the rugged terrain

It's not for me to complain
because I tune up for pragmatism
to attune and adapt

even under the darkest of sky

Puisi untuk ummi

hanya lienn yang tahu

erti sabar pada kalbu ibu

bisik sama ibu, sama ummi
tangan lienn ada dua
sedia menghubung dua jiwa
yang sering berjarak.

I know
you are good at modifying
what's brought home not to your taste

Didn't you say about adding kicap
or tomato and chili sauce
to bring taste up and higher.

I hope by now
you know intan and jintan
and you know kunyit and kantan.

my media brother

so that's it
the quickest we ever seen
to tie knot
with a bless

and he will take it
along the strides

ombak pertama

Hingga langit pun tahu budi dalam hati
Harapan yang memuncak terlerai tak bertepi
Hakikat meletak mimpi terpisah dari realiti
Helaian yang meleret tinta terang dalam sepi.

Pada ombak yang  mengusik hati
Pada pasir yang mencatat detik-detik dalam sunyi
Pada camar yang memandang dari awan tinggi
Waktu lesu menanti turun mentari.

every word.

I remember every word
bridging all mood
binding all nerve

as the heart trembles
as mood sways
as feelings escalate

I bow at the edge of time
again as a sign of respect
no claps, just a bow.

air mata

Kau mengalir airmata
waktu berat di dada
waktu aku masih ada

Puisi Ulangtahun Perkahwinan

siang yang datang mengajak malam
bergeseran antara lena dan leka
menilai erti hidup berkongsi ruang
sepanjang susah dan senang
antara riang gembira dan duka derita

Fajar menyinsing membuka tabir memori
meletak warna pada tabir rahsia yang usang
menyelak dalam kedukaan
tersingsing rasa senang gembira.

to my dear little one NLH (2)

a sunset, tanjung aru, sabah.

~Thomas Miller

The day is past, the sun is set,
And the white stars are in the sky;
While the long grass with dew is wet,
And through the air the bats now fly.
The lambs have now lain down to sleep,
The birds have long since sought their nests;
The air is still; and dark, and deep
On the hill side the old wood rests.
Yet of the dark I have no fear,
But feel as safe as when 'tis light;
For I know God is with me there,
And He will guard me through the night.
For God is by me when I pray,
And when I close mine eyes to sleep,
I know that He will with me stay,
And will all night watch by me keep.
For He who rules the stars and sea,
Who makes the grass and trees to grow.
Will look on a poor child like me,
When on my knees I to Him bow.
He holds all things in His right hand,
The rich, the poor, the great, the small;
When we sleep, or sit, or stand,
He is with us, for He loves us all.

Puisi anak kecil

semalam kau tidur nyenyak, lebih awal dari ayah
ummi memeluk erat seketika
sambil bercerita, bersambung-sambung.

ayah hanya mampu senyum
sebab ayah sudah dengar semalam
cerita yang sama diulang dengan sedikit variasi
namun kau masih teruja, ternanti.

Apa kau selesa tidur diapit begitu
ayah sebelah sini, ummi sebelah sana

a slice

I whisper to her
I am not demanding for more
a slice will do

a fruit
a life
a love.

I will be contented forever.

Wednesday, December 05, 2012


if you happen to have a slightest
of anger and utmost hatred
don't ever to try to come
with knife and dagger

I will not fight back
I will sit still watching you
plunging and slashing

I will only say sorry
as the last blood drop
to the bottom of sanity
as hatred rose to the sky
and falls as honey and dew.

the veins

I was watching the garden
the morning was finest
the sky was bluest
the birds were sweetest

as sweet as the little one
as we walk to the edge of time
with flowers in hands
love in hearts

everything is in the veins
my dear.

to my dear little one, NLH (1)


~Christina Rossetti

Brown and furry
Caterpillar in a hurry,
Take your walk
To the shady leaf, or stalk,
Or what not,
Which may be the chosen spot.
No toad spy you,
Hovering bird of prey pass by you;
Spin and die,
To live again a butterfly.
