Kepada Laut


:mengenang We Cudai

Di dermaga dekat kotaku
Kau adalah laut yang paling palung
Sejejer karang karam di dasar sukmamu
Menyeruak cahaya dalam gulita katakata

Segerombol camar kerap ramai mengunjungiku
Sekedar berbagi berita tentang dirimu yang tak lagi biru
Ombakmu yang berhenti bisu
Atau anginmu yang lupa deru

Di suatu senja yang asin
Cecar tanya berlomba
Guyur di atas luka yang makam.

To The Ocean
Reminiscing We Cudai

At the quay near my town
You are the ocean with deepest trough
Along side of sinking corals at the bottom of your soul
Lights beamed from the darkness of words

A flock of gulls often visited me
To share stories about you that is no longer blue
Your mute waves
Or your wind that forgets to roar

In one salty twilight
Rally of questions begin to race
Deluge over the grave of wound

Makassar, 2017
