For some people, poems are their most personal work. Thus poems are often kept personally because they are often the reflections of the poets’ deepest thoughts and feelings. However, some are generous enough to share their poems publicly. Our very own Andreas Akun, or Pak Akun as we address him, is one of those poets.
The world now provides platforms of different type for these generous poets to share. Pak Akun uses a website called poetrysoup.com to share his views, and responses to what is happening in the world through his poems. This following is our favourite.
The Sea and Me
The sea is always there for you and me to see The sun is there too to warm our glee The birds are happy with no worry The flowers bloom their beauty Though all for just temporary So when the sea seems so harsh and unfriendly When the sun eclipse is there for us to see When the birds twit of no sound chirpy And flowers wither before they’re bloomy Just keep them all in your memory Blame neither the birds nor the sea When they’re not sunny and flowery But gloomy and even stormy Just blame me… For not telling you To get ready. (Andreas Akun, Dec. 5, 2010) From: https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/the_sea_and_me_279563 For more of Akun's poems, please visit: https://www.poetrysoup.com/poems _poets/poems_by_poet.aspx?ID=14844 (Ed).
