Kuala Lumpar central market

Like Kuala Lumpar itself the market represents a dazzling variety of cultures from Middle East, Chinese and Indian to Malay. Very cheap, very tempting (if I had more space in my suitcase…)

Kuala Lumpar New years end.

Standard

Full moon competes with bursts of brilliant colour,
Drums rolls challenge the fireworks crack.
Cries of joy and merriment echo below.
The moon completes the circle
Festivities end tonight though décor will linger.
Crumpled red envelopes remain in hands and pockets
The “luck” bestowed on red accessorized givers hopefully lingers also.

(This is a day late as it wouldn’t post yesterday)

Kuala lumpar sky

Standard

Something about the sky …
I can’t quite articulate.
More definition, like a focused lens.
Though my camera skills can’t capture it
It remains embedded in my memory
A primeval force, alive, pulsating.
I’m aware of an ancient moving entity
Beyond the familiar firmament
Both disturbing and calming
Forces greater than I
Though encroached by high-rise towers
Its enduring nature upstages.
So much beyond the petty doings of man.
I find great peace in this sky.
