The Mirror

The Mirror

by MEHARUL FARZANAH It was a dark and gloomy night, and the wind was blowing as soft as silk carrying the dreams and hopes of the people of world. Only the moonlight’s silver glow lights up while lessening the inky blackness of the night, but not so bright as to dull the stars that speckled...
A Crimson Fate

A Crimson Fate

By MOHAMAD NOR AIMAN MOHAMAD NOR AZAM RASHID Dark smoke trailed beyond the mountain peaks to kiss the clouds above.

The Sea

The Sea

By Ijlal Hannan Hafeedz   The wind blew strongly. Out at sea, nothing is certain. The ebb and flow of the seemingly endless body of water that stretches over the horizon, etching the world with blue ink, leave mankind in awe and terror of its enigma. I have sailed the seas for as long as...
Charm of the Quatrains

Charm of the Quatrains

Written by Nur Aiman Kautsar   Tuailah padi antara masak, Esok jangan layu-layuan; Intailah kami antara nampak, Esok jangan rindu-rinduan. Garner the rice crop at its height, Lest it be withered ere the morn, Look well on me whilst in your sight, Don’t lovelorn be at tomorrow’s dawn. How beautiful are the words, immersing us...
