The Nature Song

I lay my head on the fingers of trees
To the wind I feel serene
To the sun I hold my dreams
In a fresh flesh

I hear the birds build its nest
O’er lush trees, close to the sky
Birds are sacredly free
With the colour of spring on its wings
Befriend the nature, but not the preys

Mother of Roots

pitch dark soil is burying deep
the cold young roots
spreading to the center of the earth
toward water, away from air,
away from light
cultivating power

their pointy fingers are wiggling
replacing tears with nutrients
carving the pith and sapwood vessels
so leaves can taste the water then the flowers will bloom

those stem that lives among numerous lignin
in the middle of the widened tree rings
life is spinning,
be still and silent in the heartwood’s tomb

root is like a mother,
who gave her entire life
being fragile in silence
when the stem is rising,
twigs are opening up their canopies,
leaves are curling,
thousands of times till they touch the ground
when death is the only
time for them to be united

Poetry Prairie – 2015

Borneo Sky

A thousand rivers in your arms
winding through forests
that has declining for ages,
gurgling on the edge of small lands
guardians of the rivers
before unite in the open sea

The eagle eyes catching wind
that blows the clouds,
reflecting in the water of rice fields
like a prism of mirrors

Blue canvas sky
above grief of the land
below magnetic equator
Once, a dense rainforest
between crying flow of rivers
Giant snappers and groupers grow wild
from headwaters to creeks
papuyu, lais, jelawat, seluang
all other local fishes
splash in the air,
perfect dish at night

the sky covers thousand miles of swamps
greener plantations
deeper quarries
bolder heavy trucks
cold bladed steel
digging greedier
indiscriminate deforestation

A shade of grey in the sky
Maybe we’ll meet again someday
When sky is more colourless

Borneo is the third-largest island in the world and the largest island of Asia. The island is divided among three countries: Brunei and Malaysia on the north, and Indonesia to the south. Approximately 73% of the island is Indonesian territory. Borneo is home to one of the oldest rainforests in the world.



I can see love, so green
An age long remedy that keeps me in the aisles
So pure till I can touch my own soul
A blessing in disguise I have to find

I can see love, so green
It’s the touch of an invisible truth
What lies beneath?
It’s blinded me with the beauty of it

I can see love, so green
It comes along with a white soft chill
Enchanted together in chastity
O, it’s a blitz of bliss!

I can see love, so green
It is a sight for sore eyes
A cherish moment that destined to be mine
Reminiscent of divine denouement

I can feel love, so glory
The fragile sprouts burst from a pitch dark soil
Suddenly I’m lost in the cloverfield
Greens take my heart away

I sing for the spring, so lovely
A holy scheme of nature I found peace
Rising with hopes and dreams and future
As I lay down in the cloverfield
