Scraps Of Light


image

wind came with grim
to the tip of twigs
heart-whole settled
as dark as the earth’s light
or binary clouds in the sky

gray color of your sleep
guarding your spirit
we shall never know where the wind blows
changing direction, or why
silence was a test that stretched
along with falling leaves

the wind climbs up the ocean of anger
that was attached in boulders of clouds
there, silence should be stored to open the heart
the wind dissolved to the path of solar rays
penetrate the sky’s layers
falling rays absorbed into the dark earth
so that we know the form of this world

Keping Cahaya

angin datang dengan muram
di bibir ranting-ranting
terendap pasrah
sepekat sinar di bumi
atau awan biner di langit

kelabu itu warna tidurmu
penjaga sukmamu
kita tak akan pernah tahu kemana
angin berubah arah, atau kenapa
kesunyian adalah ujian yang terbujur
bersama daun-daun gugur

angin mendaki lautan amarah yang melekat di bongkah awan
harusnya di sana tersimpan kesunyian pembuka hati
luluh angin membuka jalan serpih surya menembus lapisan langit
sinarnya jatuh ke bumi yang gelap
agar kita tahu seperti apa wujud dunia
