WHAT IS LEFT IS ONLY A NAME AS HERITAGE
This is a journey shore-to-shore
and passing feet
of yesterday and moments ago
having left no prints.
Ask the spray and waves breaking ashore
or is it etched on rounded stones?
Ask the birds in flight
or is it carved on the pines?
What is left
but the traveler’s name
MAHAYA MOHD YASSIN, Malaysia.
