QUOTES

“We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.”



“Love is what happens to a man and woman who don't know each other”

Hi Sueda,

Thanks so much for visiting puisi-poesy... sadly, many of us are so busy that we haven't been able to keep up the blog as much as we would like.... especially me, since I only have net access very infrequently. Thanks too for the encouragement. You don't know much that means to us, to know that we are not wasting our time, and are actually doing something good and meaningful for others and ourselves.

As for your poems... ahhh, I'm not the best person to comment, since I don't exactly have the familiarity with the forms and structure of sajak, gurindam etc. I wish I read more malay puisi, but unfortunately there isn't really a supportive environment for interest in it to grow (perhaps, I'm wrong or unaware). Shamefully, I have only one collection of Malay poetry, that is the one by A. Samad Said. It's far worse for Chinese poetry, because I don't read them at all.

Speaking of Malay poetry... I always enjoyed the sounds of the words strung together, because they have a natural sensuousness about them, don't you think so? I have since lost touch, sigh... oops I am repeating myself here. Incidentally, I once ask the blogger Kak Teh to contribute a monthly Malay poetry section as part of the blog.... but unfortunately, she's been so busy... and so have I, in more recent times, hence haven't managed the blog that well either. Well, I must get back to my 'work' soon. Thanks again... and do come by once in a while and comment, if you like. Cheers! :)

You are from Kuantan... I'm from the state above yours, though currently and more recently based in PJ.
