Basic

Just doing the basic,
don’t have anything for public,
just trying to be sensible, steady, and quick,
just striving to be prolific.

And hoping when the night comes,
I can sit still at peace.

The Reason

I need a reason,
It has to be better than fair affection,
It has to be better than momentary satisfaction,
Clearly it has to be better than fancy appreciation.

I ain’t an angel or a samurai,
who never sighs or needs to gratify,
sometimes I wonder and shout a cry,
nothing else but I need to find the why,
one is enough and it doesn’t need to be high.

Yes, please give me a reason,
That’s proven for every season.

Surabaya Int’l Kite Festival 2016

The Kite Festival makes me remember my childhood song “Playing Kites.”

PLAYING KITES
Composer: Madong Lubis

I take a single stick of bamboo,
Then I cut it equally into two,
I shape that bamboo sticks, weigh them with a thread and tie them,
I make them a kite.

Playing, running,
I’m playing a kite,
I’m running while bringing the kite to the open field,
My heart is happy and joyful.
=====  

Hopefully, you enjoy the kites too. Okay, Friends, where ever you are, I wish for you a great day.

Blue Sea

Km 24 from Jamrud Interinsuler Cargo Terminal, Tg Perak, Indonesia

Blue sea, blue sea, 
are you really as what I see? 

You’re calm in the outside, 

but, are you fiery inside?
