Visit Malaysia Year: Fort A Famosa old graves (State of Malacca)


fort a famosa little jittery
just across the fence
a child's marble grave

the only things that warm
the old, broken graves
sunlight and their love messages

Around the A Famosa are many old graves some several hundred years old. They are of marble and broken in many parts. However, what keep them warm when visiting these graves are the sunlight and the love messages on these graves from love ones.
