2 poems by Maslina Arshad

Talking colours

by Maslina Arshad

i am grey,
you are

will you
go red
or turn green?

can we
be orange,
might we
lose violet?

get black,
be brown,
remember yellow?

all white

Creative processMaslina Arshad: I was just thinking about how we describe feelings using colours, and from that point I started to play around with the words for them, making the colours more prominent and not as mere background.

if i have lost you
would it make any difference
when my horoscope today
said otherwise

Creative processMaslina Arshad: I know many of us like to read horoscopes and would compare their predictions to actual events of our lives for that day. For this I prefer to write a short poem because simple words can represent stronger feelings better.

Maslina Arshad is a closet poet who is also a lawyer by day. She loves reading and is especially blessed to have married a fellow bookworm. She loves watching the rain fall, staring into space for ideas to form into words. She has been writing since many moons ago but never submitted anything to anywhere, until the existence of this webzine. She would love to publish the rest of her work someday. In the meantime she is happy chasing her son chasing the cat, somewhere in the middle of a town called Temerloh. Visit her blog, to see more of her work.
