About

whims2016

I was born in Perak. I came to Klang Valley in 1982, and been living here since then.

I love cats. Just watching my cats can make me happy.

 

FOOD

I love soup. Not just any kind of soup either, but serious, hearty, soul-warming soup that’s thick enough to stand a spoon up in.

 

 

 

FAVOURITE POETRY

People like poetry because it tells them something about their life, often what they themselves long to formulate but don’t have the words or creative capacity to formulate. Hence you have poets to do it for them. In that sense, the poet finds words for people, when they can’t find it themselves.

Below is one of my favourite malay puisi;

Kekasih

Akan kupintal buih-buih
menjadi tali mengikatmu

Akan kuanyam gelombang-gelombang
menjadi hamparan ranjang tidurmu

Akan kutenun awan-gemawan
menjadi selendang menudungi rambutmu

Akan kujahit bayu gunung
menjadi baju pakaian malammu

Akan kupetik bintang timur
menjadi kerongsang menyinari dadamu

Akan kujolok bulan gerhana
menjadi lampu menyuluhi rindu

Akan kurebahkan matari
menjadi laut malammu
menghirup sakar madumu

Kekasih,
hitunglah mimpi
yang membunuh realiti
dengan syurga ilusi.

*Usman Awang*
