Moonlight


moonlight brilliant
without you here, darkness falls
thé night is cold -

clair de lune est brille
sans toi, il fait sombre
la nuit est froid -

Berdiri aku
Kedinginan rambulan
Sendirian

  4. Waahh! I just love the way you express your thoughts in different languages. If I were to try, can only manage 2 - how pathetic!

    1. I try Mama Tim. I do try. I wish to write more extensively in Bahasa. Thank you !

      We are so lucky we are assured of at least two languages. As the years go by, I earnestly feel I need to learn Arabic.

    1. Thank you Anthony. I guess in this part of the world, we pick up one or two languages. English and our national language at the very least. I can get around taxis giving directions in Cantonese if I have to!

      Thank you for dropping by today.

  7. Thank you Carrie! I love the night, and large full moons must be among the prettiest sights on earth - whether over the sea, the desert or mountains.

  10. Ninot Ma'am!
    Another gem again! All three bahasa! How nice! The French as always is a language of refinement. But Cantonese too, and Arabic! Great!
