Go to the new

Poetry by Kristine Ong Muslim 





© 2007 Kristine Ong Muslim








There is always a trace

of prodigal dust

on porcelain


and a telltale

yellow stain

on the mattress.


Potpourri and snapshots

of smiling grandchildren

in summer afternoons


freeze time on the mantel.

The earthy smell of tea

and eternity mingles


as the rocker groans

the wordless hymn

of the passing years.
