Untitled (say the name)

Spread the love

Under the boundless sky, say the name
and watch as rosy sunset floods the sky
Lebuhraya, lebuhraya as we’re led into
the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

A city swept by rising sighs and dreams
as I dip my woes into glimmering lakes,
hear the gust herald yellowing blossoms
and rain. You see the same faces every
time you enter a cafe, with coffee and
friends, trouble need not cross our way.

I watch as smiles greet me on the trail
Lebuhraya, lebuhraya as the sky alters
to grey.

  2. Such magical names. I love the smiles in the coffee shop. We have a bake shop here that is the same. I especially like the dipping of woes into glimmering lakes. I really enjoyed this poem, Sanaa.

    Big town but a small place when it comes to trying to hide. I like this, It’s a pretty town. I haven’t been to Malaysia, closest would be Hong Kong. China and the airport at Tokyo are the only eastern places we’ve visited. Mideast, yes.

      Thank you so much, Jim 🙂 so good to see you ❤️

  12. Such musical names, Sanaa, and I love the ‘boundless sky’ – we have them here too. I love the description of Kuala Lumpur as a ‘city swept by rising sighs and dreams, and the friendliness of the seeps through with the aroma in the lines:
    ‘…you enter a cafe, with coffee and
    friends, trouble need not cross our way’.
