Visit Malaysia Year Haiku -Butterworth Ferryride To Penang


ferryride
penang slowly comes
onto our laps

slowly penang comes
a birthday cake with all
its 'towering' candles

it's not hongkong
it's not singapore
it's penang

ferryride
the dream he carries
to and fro

slowly a postcard
comes alive
penang ferry ride

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
