a place at the far end of the earth

this one place i keep returning to. my first sojourn was in 2001, it seemed so far away then riding my bike here. tanjung dawai is where i managed to capture some of the most beautiful of sunsets. among the people meet in your journey through life, there are places more human and rooted to earth. when you find them, you seem complete. and you go on to find more. and more. like a treasure hunt for pieces to complete a jigsaw puzzle in this great tapestry of life. it ends at a beautiful place at the far end of the earth...

The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
