kerat

life is right now never on hold
got to sample its contents on display
don’t procrastinate dawdle or hold back
enjoy life immerse yourself in the sprawl
engage and treasure it, break the mould
why delay try out whatever you may
participation keeps us on track
indulge yourself shop in the mall

dance walk cycle let life unfold
garden music try something new each day
get off your device have a date with Mac
dress up formally and attend that ball
step up, do new things and be bold
attend the gallery opening to have an entrée
paint a wall red or green never black
stride into life be open to every enthral!

This poem is a Pantun Enam Belas Kerat which is the longest form of a Pantun, a poetry form of Malaysian origin. This long form is composed of 2 octaves where each line is a consistent syllable count between 8 to 12 syllables. The rhyme scheme is: abcdabcd, abcdabcd.  read it on Muriopsis, I think.

  1. Wise wisdom! Fun, too! Thank you! 🙂
    Music is a part of each of my days! Life is beautiful every day…on the days with fun, new-adventures, and events…and on the quiet don’t-have-to-do-anything-today days! 🙂 I am so grateful for life and each day…like you said recently “paint life with colour”! I do!
    ❤️💛💚 🧡💙🤎💜

  2. Ok, cost free. Facebook Marketplace, Twitter, instagram, Gumtree. All of these have worked for people I know. I have one friend who solely distributes through Facebook. She has a very good take up.

    • FB is a politicized domain nowadays, and when we travelled around AU free sites were impossible to find. They were also really remote and often substandard. If you are interested in giving it a look at, let me know. I am happy to pay and I do take advice. Have a great Sunday Kate. 🙂
