A father sitting alone in front of his laptop for surfing. But at the same time, he can hear the voice of peoples talking outside there. He can hear birds sing on his roof. He can listen the sound of fan and even the drop of water from water pipe at the kitchen. Even more now he can hear clearly sound of wind blowing.

The sound is there every day but it never come too close to his ears like today

Everything too quiet not like usual.

When children & wife back to home town during school holiday like this, suddenly the daily life of a father dramatically change. Many things that he just asked before, now he must have and do on his own. Wash cloth, lunch outside and do housekeeping work.

If we ever saw on a field with only a tree at the center. After we look at the three for a while, we may have the feeling how lonely the tree standing there alone.

To a father it is more than that. Now he have no body to give his help, no body comes to seek his assistant. No daughter will prepare his coffee on behalf. No son around to ask to bring something to him. He is now like a king without peoples.

Lucky he got something that can overcome the quietness until his six children & wife return home, his blogs.

Seorang bapa kepada enam anaknya duduk sendirian di hadapan laptopnya.

Dia boleh mendengar bunyi orang berborak nun jauh di luar rumahnya. Dia boleh dengar bunyi kipas angin dan bunyi air menitik dari paip air di dapur. Dia boleh mendengar suara burung berkicau di bumbung rumahnya. Malah dia boleh mendengar suara angin menderu bertiup di musim tengkujuh ini.

Suara itu selalu hadir tapi di waktu ini ianya begitu hampir ke telingganya.

Suasana sunyi sungguh

Beginilah nasib seorang bapa bila tiba cuti sekolah. Bila anak isterinya pulang ke kampung. Semuanya berubah dengan begitu drastik dan dramatik. Pakaian basuh sendiri. Kemas rumah sendiri. Makan pula perlu keluar, ni salah sendiri, masak pun tak reti-reti.

Mujurlah ada sesuatu yang dapat mengatasi kesunyian dan mengisi masa sendiriannya itu, blog nya dan blog kawan-kawannya.

    Isn't that the truth..the quiet and serenity gone now filled with the feeling of love and affection and chaos from the family.

    Yes that the truth, sometimes by being alone for a while can make us realize many thing.

    Thanks Dorothy for your nice comment

    I like to be alone sometimes, so I have time to think, time to listen. Listen to the outside world and to myself, to my soul.

    Nice post, Aim. Thank you for the comment on my blog.

    what you have said is true Susanne, lonely is one of the best teacher for us to learn the meaning of appreciation to the love one.

    many thanks for the comment given.
