What a delightful issue! Many thanks to Kala and all editors for its creation! There are many poems I really enjoy and for now I choose one for comment.


plum blossom

for a moment

my home village


Agus Maulana Sunjaya


The poet does not state whether it is the sight or the scent of plum blossom, but I immediately thought of the intoxicating scent. Like nothing else, scent has the ability to transport one back to your first encounter with it so completely that you notice everything in this photographic memory "for a moment". And where was the poet transported? To the poet's home village. The third line fills the reader with nostalgia. How long has it…
