My Poem 'Snake' translated into Indonesian

Hiding or waiting
it raises its head when least
expected, a snake

glitters in the eyes:
looks for the moment to slip
and reveal the fangs

--R K Singh



Barsembunyi atau menunggu
Ia mengangkat kepalanya
sambil berharap, seekor ular

kerlip di matanya:
menanti saat orang tergelincir
dan ia pun memamerkan taringnya
