My second poem published :)

I started this blog to encourage myself to write. What’s the difference between writing on a notepad and typing it out in a blog post, you might wonder? Well, for starters, my handwriting is awful. 🙂 Secondly, having a piece of writing in a nice blog with accompanying photos/illustrations gives a sense of satisfaction. To each their own, I know… but still…. the most important thing is to be able to motivate oneself to write. 😀

Since last year (2014), I’ve been submitting works here and there to be published. I’m very happy that the Malaysian Naturalist published a few of my nature-themed poems. Here’s the second poem they published – it’s the actual page from the magazine.
