INNSAEI Journal, September 2021 : Poem “Behind The Glass”

POEM “Behind The Glass” I am so flattered and happy. It is my pleasure and honor to share my poem, ‘Behind The Glass’, published in the September 2021 issue of the prestigious INNSAEI Journal

Volume II September 2021

Many thanks the poet Orbindu Ganga and the editorial board of the journal.

I wrote this poem from a true story. I write from the bottom of my heart. So many people have to be separated from loved ones because they have to self-isolate. This poem gives hope to everyone not to worry about the power of deep love and compassion. The world will recover from the virus and the pandemic will pass.

Behind The Glass

Fingers dancing
Above the typewriter keys
Don’t want to cry anymore

Although the distance stretched
Behind the glass of the isolation room
Poetry sheets scattered
In between sips of coffee without sugar
I really miss you
Counting the days
To meet again
This quarantine period stifling my heart
There is a fear of losing you
But I believe that we will meet
I know we are both strong to face this situation
Because the roots of our love are strong and deep
I love you and keep praying for you

Selamat Hari Puisi Indonesia

Jari jemari menari
Di atas tombol mesin tik
Tak ingin menangis lagi
Walau jarak terbentang
Di balik kaca kamar isoman
Lembar kertas puisi bertebaran
Di antara sesap kopi tanpa gula
