Rookie (March 7,1974 / Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia)

A Diary Four (La Isla Samba)

(dedicated to Ms. Catrina Heart, a poet friend at poemhunter)

this early sensuous Summer
I wander together with her
a voice of seagull calls
the sea is shimmering

thou beautiful one! my heart's desire
you have changed me by your love
my soul yearns for your care
my arm resting upon yours

your love has captured me
your love holds me back
swan flies up and soars
the birds sing in flocks

    In this poem also, repect tends to be a kind of love at one point. You may not be menaing it so but the poems reflects. In my opinion, let us not nurture this kind of sentiments to our well wishers and critics. It is all part of the game. (Report) Reply
