Quintet untuk Langit Malam


Langit malam
Selalu kaulah sesuatu yang menarik
Tertaburi mereka yang selalu apik
Di awal senja dengan bintik-bintik
Di tengah gelap tampak laiknya manik-manik

Langit malam
Mereka adalah bagian dari dirimu
Tak terhitung jumlah berapa jutaribu
Menempelkan diri bersama keelokan paraupanmu
Merekalah rasi bintang yang setia nan syahdu

Langit malam
Berekor binatang, gegunung, dan, secuil hamba
Di bawah dekapan yang merasuk nyata
Serta rajutan bebintang tanpa ada benang sutera
Bersaksi bersamamu untuk memuja-Nya

Quintet To The Night Sky

Night sky
Always you were something 
Sowed by their beauty
At the front of dusk with spots
Amongst the dark sparkling like beads

Night sky
They are a part of you
Countless how many thousandbillions of them
Pledged themselves to your elegance 
They are the most loyal, serene constellations

Night sky
Beast-tailed, mountains-tailed, and, a piece of me
Under a true pervasive embracement
Knitting stars without silk threads
To make an oath with you, worshipping God
