Satu Jalan – reminder

There is only one way…. No other way. That way is love. To love others by respecting and appreciating them

Arid Land, His Heart

I never want to hurt myself, I just didn’t know who you are.
I got hurt by a cactus in a desert
Who pricks little fingers,
Who just want to touch this life softly,
Not hurting, not taking anything away.


Wounded, I decided to blame stupidity:
Why did I have to have to have to have to have to just touch cacti? I should have left that arid land long before I touched a prickly spirit.


A delayed regret is less important than a lesson learned but it always gives a story the most significant pivot.


Now
I’ll just admire from here
From where I stand
With millions of prayers
For a secret journey.
Yet I know you are a ghost days and nights.


Someday when I pour down the rain,
You’ll know.
Love is as sweet as water in drought—
Maybe—
If it is not late....

May all beings be happy.

Wither – music and lyric

When the dream has fallen down
Let it go.
Move on.

Though not wither, hope can dry out and burn itself down like forest in heat fire….

May all beings be happy.

Layers of Self – verses

There is time when Mr Grey is reluctant to evaluate others’
Actions,
Motions,
Emotions,
Notions—
For as much as the head’s dullness, true colours won’t lie
And untrue intentions will reveal.

In the mode of working class,
Putting layered of dignified masks in silence,
Enchanting intelligent chorus in public,
Smirking in the dark.
Beloved dedication
Decorated with
Stabbing behind—
….

Doesn’t it matter?
No—
Take a time
As long as Time wishes to be with you:
Hiding behind true Smile,
Singing in the Heart,
Reciting poems in the Soul.

Someday
When the floor invites you to dance,
Offering the best music of Life,
Then down to the floor!

Dance until the Light fades away
Which is never.

Now
Observe all the moves
Of the masks around you
Which will undo themselves

One by one.

May all beings be happy.

It Says Thanks To You – haiku

It says thanks to you
For showing true and untrue
Through this emotion.

Singapore – Jun. 1, 2020 / 22:15


Realising that a gift is not merely about a special thing wrapped beautifully but more about the true among the untrue is a gift itself. No matter how it feels inside until now, I still thank you.

What a beautiful Life!

May all beings be happy….

 

Celebrate your days! – haiku

Celebrate your day!
Every day! For all blessings
Poured down to your life.

Dear Self,
Every day is counted blessing, none of which is unworthy even if you experience unworthiness.

Never underestimate small detail. A piece of missing puzzle will break a big picture.

Thanks for all the blessed days, dear Life!

May all beings be happy. 🥰

Church – Coldplay

[Verse 1]
What can I tell you?
When I’m with you, I’m walking on air
Watching you sleeping there, yeah
But what can’t I get through?
And for everyone, everywhere
You’re answering every prayer

[Chorus]
And when you’re riding a wave
Oh, won’t you ride that wave to me?
When you’re setting your sail
Oh, can I be your seventh sea?
When you’re riding a wave
Oh, when you’re riding a wave

[Bridge]
‘Cause when I’m hurt
Then I’ll go to your church
‘Cause when I’m hurt
Then I’ll go to your church

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]
When you’re riding a wave
Oh, won’t you ride that wave to me?
When you’re riding a wave

[Vocalizing in Arabic by Norah Shaqur]
أبي يا الله يا قادر، لماذا تركتني؟
أبي يا الله يا قادر
حرية يا الله
محبة يا الله

[Outro]
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
I worship in your church, baby, always
I worship in your church, all the seven days (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
I praise and praise
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)

 

 

Music (Musik) – bilingual

Can you hear a flow of some rhythms? Kicking off from nowhere, entering these earlobes and stay for a while before it fades away through mind…. There, the flow is curling like bellowing smoke — white, high and sublimized. No words are able to accompany the rhythm flow, no body understands how beautiful it is but ears, only ears. The music is for ears to hear, to listen…. The review is the listening itself. When you still produce words to describe the music, it is not the ultimate — Beethoven composed symphonies to be enjoyed by ears, not to criticized by verbal expression. He didn’t expect people would make him a worshipped maestro. He kept composing, transferring what was flowing through his ears and head…. And, when the vibration reaches us, Beethoven is just here together with his music presenting to the Universe in us….

 

Tidakkah kau dengar alunan nada itu? Bermula dari tiada, memasuki telinga dan berdiam sejenak lalu menghilang perlahan merasuki kepala…. Di sanalah alunan itu melingkar-lingkar bagai asap yang membubung tinggi — putih, tinggi dan muai. Tak satu kata pun mampu menerjemahkannya, tak satu makhluk pun paham keindahannya kecuali telinga, hanya telinga. Musik ini untuk ditangkap oleh telinga, untuk didengar…. Penghargaan musik adalah dengan mendengarkan. Kalau kau masih mampu berkata-kata menyifati musik, berarti music itu belum seberapa — Beethoven menggubah simfoni-simfoni demi dinikmati oleh telinga, bukan untuk kritik musika. Dia tak meminta orang menjadikannya maestro yang dipuja-puja. Beethoven terus menggubah, menerjemahkan alunan yang masuk ke dalam telinga dan kepalanya….. Dan, saat getaran itu mencapai kita, Beethoven sedang di sini mempersembahkan musiknya kepada Semesta di jiwa kita…..

MUSIC

kutemukan musik dalam hidup
aliran udara dan tekanan angin yang berbeda menjadi musik
gemericik air dan gulungan debu menjadi nada
tarikan dan hembusan nafas yang satu-satu lembut, sedang, memburu, sesak… tempo…

musik,
jiwa yang berirama,
kehidupan yang berpola,
nuansa yang menggema beribu tahun, kembali mengingatkanku pada alunan musik

terlupa sejenak lalu ingat ketika terpanggil oleh kerinduan….
akan masa-masa yang penuh cinta…

musik selalu menggugah emosi,
menelusuri rasa,
membangkitkan keimanan akan pertemuan dengan yang sejati

dengan YangSejati….
