      wow - I enjoyed reading and re-reading this poem many times, especially out loud. Almost every line is packed with well composed and compelling imagery, which ties this prophetic robin - to the haunting call - to mystic airs/heavens - to the human's ear (possibly the writer who's a soldier?) , and finally to a great turn of what seems like some breaking violence to me that the sound rises above. The assonance is unapologetically strong and helps project this sort of mystic/mythic sense that that something broke through the violent human affairs of earth. I imagine a soldier in the midle of unmarked gunfire who is suddenly entranced by a more powerful other worldly sensation, which is breaking through and past the human static violence.

      a pleasure to read - the sound, the structure, the rhythm - all these add to the unfolding of the deeper fluid message/narrative of the work.

    • POEM: Love by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof (6/5/2008 7:01:00 AM)

      Mother’s ancient glyphs,
      the heritage of artistry
      guiding you back toward her salty womb,
      but always reminding you at the last moment
      that one can never go home.
