Mid Autumn Festival Sept 22, 2010

Kuala Lumpur 7.30pm moon
a large sunkist orange finds it way
through the clouds

Mid Autumn Festival
are you too
looking at the moon?

Mid Autumn Festival moon is said to be the roundest and luminuous and hence most beautiful. Some societies believe the moon helps to sharpen one's intellectual acuity. So look at the moon for as long as possible tomorrow night. You might find yourself, a sharper person in every sense of the word after that.

empty sea coast
whistling the peace
casuarina trees

The above haiku was inspired one solitary dusk as I walked along a windy Tanjung Rhu
or Cape of Casuarinas in Langkawi. There were so many casuarinas trees and all of them
them whistled to me.

fallen leaves
i try to remember
the day we met

Pearl of the Orient
best story tellers come
to share their gems
