SINGING WITH A FISH [6]

NIGHT
Night is a piece of leaf
spreads out in the room.
There I lay down
freezing.
1976
by
DARMA MOHAMMAD
[Translated from Malay by the author.]
The poem MALAM (NIGHT) is taken from my poetry book entitled
GERNYUT NAFAS
published in 1989.

Puan Faridah,

Saya sedang menikmati puisi-puisi puan. Temanya pelbagai. Bahasa yang menarik.

Pastinya ada rancangan nanti terbitkan antologi puisi kedua.
Selamat menulis.

"Night is a piece of leaf" I love this image. It says so much with so few words.

ufukhati said...

christine,

Wah! I'm happy that you like the image. To write the first line sometimes make me mad. And it is the hardest.

Thank you christine.
