First Haiku


First snow falls
Snowflakes glitter
No love wish

Soft white snow
Landed on my palm
Heart is lonely

Snowflakes melting
On hair and clothes
Chest is cold

Coldness touches earth
Lake froze
Love stood

Winter wind blows
Make me shiver
Tears heated heart
"My first haiku.
It was Thursday – a “cloudy and highly-flammable” – as I share with Kak Maz. I felt a pulse inside me rising and pushing me back into the black hole of melancholy.

I just have to emphasize the feelings that reside in me. Haiku; I said. I’d called this “First Snow”.

Sad theme, yes it is. It was because this haiku did inspired by the sadness in me.
Apparently, after this haiku written I was inspired by an oldies song “You’re My Everything” and a sweet and nice and lovely haiku started to fill in the air: “Sun kiss and smiles
Flowers blooming
Love loving

My Song of Joy


There’s a song that keep on playing in my head since I was 10 years old. The song brings along sweetest memory a 10 year old girl could have. It’s Song of Joy.

I grew up memorizing the melody, each single day so that I will not forget about it. I was too young to know who composed it, or how I would be able to find it. Back at that time, internet was not an application all houses were equipped with, not even as mobile or easy accessed as today. Therefore, the best I could do is to mention the title to as many potential people as I can. The return was no one ever knows about it.

Let’s talk about the 10 years old girl and the song, shall we?
A 10 years old girl had a crush on her senior. The boy was predicted to be school’s next best student – he was 12. Well, she’s only a 10 years old girl, living in a small village where news spread like all houses have their doors stick together. So, not much action could be taken, not that she had options; the crush remained as crush. T…

Al Kisah Kasih

Akhirnya, runut bunyi untuk drama bersiri Nur Kasih telah mula dimainkan di corong-corong radio. Juga bermaksud mp3 runut tersebut, nyanyian Yasin boleh dimuat turun di internet!

Drama Nur Kasih seolah-olah mengakhiri ketandusan drama bertema keagamaan di Malaysia. Telah sekian lama para penonton disogokkan dengan karya bertema keagamaan dari negara seberang. Apa yang menariknya mengenai Nur Kasih; selain kontroversi para pelakonnya, adalah kebanyakan penonton mula tertarik dengan trailer dan runut bunyinya sebelum dramanya.

Ada yang meletakkan Nur Kasih sebagai drama keagamaan terbaik. Tetapi tidak ada yang sempurna selain DIA. Nur Kasih, dalam membawakan tema dan mesej keagamaan yang mudah dan agak biasa; masih kuat dgn garapan dialog dan olahan skrip serta jalan cerita yang menjadikannya sebuah karya yang menarik. Ditangan Khabir Bhatia serta sinematografinya yang baik, kisah Aidil, Adam, Nur Amina, Ustaz Hassan, Hajjah, Kat, Alia serta lain-lain watak menjadi sebuah pementasan kehid…

Gravity of Love


This would be a very simple post; I’m sharing a lovely and great song by Sara Bareilles, Gravity.
[Another thank you note for Kak Maz for her sharing in Facebook].

I find the lyric suited a story I’ve trying to tell. I doubted to find any other songs or phrases that simply explain how love could be. So to say, how one just can’t get his/herself out from the love chain at any defines condition the love is.

It is because the touch of love is the gravity.
It was so hard to write any single elaboration as the lyric illustrated all.

by Sara Bareilles

Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do I'll still feel you here 'til the moment I'm gone.

You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.
I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your reign.

Set me free, leave me be.
I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way…
