Into The World

Plant, slant, pant, ant, chant!
Into the world;
With the muse of your words;
Sunflower, flower, lower, power!
With the ways of the world.

Into the world;
In the jungle,
With the muse of the darkness around.

Of the sign!
Because, i saw you in my dream;
Last night.

The Yellow River,
The Blue River,
The Red River,
The Black River,
The Green River,
The Brown River;
With the muse of the world,
And, with hope coming out from the light.

Standing On The Wooden Bridge

Standing on the Wooden Bridge

I stand on the wooden bridge,
Just in front of my house,
Facing west, watching sunset, painting the sky red,
Pale moon hung on the eastern sky,
Listening to the frogs, brown birds flying
Across the lalang field,
Finding corns and grains.

The river flows gracefully underneath the bridge,
Carrying its brownish current,
With its swirling dimples on its surface,
Sending coconut husks, future seeds and dried leaves to the sea,
Bandung grass grows along the river bank,
Swaying right and left, a playground for frogs and mudskipper
And sometime bend down as if they want to drink the river water.

Sometimes there are a few biawak swimming in the river,
Peeping from the water surface,
They will run away if you throw stones into the river,
My brother likes to do that,
I feel cold breeze from the Batang Sadong river,
Coiling around me, as if they want to play with me,
A beautiful scenery that I will keep forever in my heart.

My Own Future

This is that river,
Who has given me culture.
This is that river,
Who is not able to move further.
See this river in the eyes
Of the moon my dear and
Say something in the words
Of the clouds and the deer.
The river knows what type
Of man I am and hence
Shows me waves and stones,
That are there years together.
Whether I am loving or hating
Is a different matter, my dear.
But I am with the river and
The river is with me
Notwithstanding anything
Contrary to my own future.

' The River's Arms... '

I Rushed Into The River’s Arms
It Carried Me Away
Within Its Strong, Swift Current
Amid Foam and Sunlit Spray

It Wetly Glossed My Skin
Dripping Diamonds … and Dipping Me
Close Down To The Riverbed
Deep and Wild and Murky

At First, Its Cold Nature
Shocked and Intimidated
Until I Learned Its Flow
Sweetly Invigorated …

Every Splash Upon My Flesh
Was Playful and Caressive
Every Plunge and Every Pull
Held Me Curiously and Possessive

My Body Buoyed and Bounced
Floating On Smooth Liquid
Every Sprinkle Was Sparkling
Each Velvet-Lapping, Vivid

Where Dreams Un-Drowned Had Mixed
With Waves Rimming O’er and Spilt …
Rippled and Spinned Around Rocks That Skipped
Were Danced Down Into Silken-Silt

I Kept Rising By Riverside
Thru Every Dunk and Every Dive …
Every Surge Felt So Alive
Every Soak So Synchronized

Like A Saturday Baptism
My Saturated Soul, Glistened
An Enraptured, Reborn Vision
Fresh-Rinsed … and Arisen

I Let The River Steer
So Symbolic and So Sure
It Carries To Something Greater
I’ll Find Out Just What Later …

“ River Long and River Wide
My River Song On Riverside
Traveling On The River Tides
River’s Arms Is One Sweet Ride ”

It Is Not A Pot Of Gold
But A Jade River That Flows
At The End Of A Rainbow
(Every Forest Creature Knows)

Now Sitting On Riverbank
Watching This Swishing Water-Tank
Don’t Know How I Didn’t Sank …
But I Do Know Who To Thank! …

“ River Long, Oh River Ride
My River Song … On Riverside
Traveling On Your River Tides
River’s Arms Was Open Wide

… I Rushed Into The River’s Arms and … “
