Cahaya Sirius Si Perangkai Canis Mayor

Berjuta terang menghiasi gelap gulita
Tak peduli akan takut pada malam
Menghapus kian ribu mimpi buruk
Merobek penuh ragu dalam sunyi
Mencoba jauh lihat wajah langit
Mengagumi kemegahan ciptaan Tuhan

Gugusan bintang menyapu sepi
Membangun jalinan arti rasi
Ditemani jutaan rangkai bintang
Mengizinkan anganku melayang
Tampak pancaran sinar paling terang
Mencoba memanggil suatu tanya

Siapa bintang paling terang itu?
Seolah menyambut pula memanggilku
ia ambil alih sorot pandanganku
Menatap langit gelap menuju arahnya

Kutanya pada segenap bintang…
siapakah dirinya itu?
Bertanya pada sang rembulan
Siapakah cahaya penerang itu?
Mencoba tuntaskan segala kata tanya

Lalu bintang berikan jalannya
Pada rasi canis mayor ia tinggal
Mencoba cari siapa namanya
Sang perangkai canis mayor

Kepadamu gelap kubertanya
Penuh terang yang jauh kugapai
Mencoba hiasi malamku nan sepi
Sirius sang perangkai

Tak ingin malam ini laju
Merapuh lalu usai
Ingin terus memandangimu
Tak penat menatap wajah langit
Cahayamu menggetarkan rongga hati
Kepadamu sirius si perangkai canis mayor

Sirius Light The Canis Major’s Designer

Millions of light adorn total darkness
No matter how scared at night
Erase thousands nightmares
Ripping doubtfully in silence
Try to see the face of sky from a distance
Adore His grandeur divine creations

The stars’ clusters sweep this silence
Build the tangles of constellations
Accompanied by a million truss of stars
Allow my thoughts to wander
I see the most bright light
Trying to call a wonder

Who is that most bright star?
As if it greets me and call
It takes over my sight
Staring at the dark sky toward the star

I ask the stars, who it was?
I ask the moon
Who is that torch of light?
Trying to complete all the wonders

Then stars open their way
To Canis Major it lives
I try to seek its name
The Canis Major’s designer

To darkness I ask
So bright that’s so far
Trying to decorate my hollow night
Sirius the coupling

I don’t want this night to run
Fragile then done
I want to look through at you
Staring the face of sky
Your light thrills the cavities of heart
To you Sirius, the Canis Major’s designer

Summer Triangle

Altair,
node of constellation has measured your wings
incandescent eyes are floating in the sea of breeze
recreate the brightest eyes inside the constellation’s lines
a conference of billions of years

three triangular eyes anneal the wings
as sturdy as eagle piercing the north sky
infest the summer skies
thousands of love were written naturally
in the eternal flickerings, eyes of the ones who yearn

Vega, Deneb,
please greet the earth passer-by
the explorers of the skins of silence
where lights are dead
    at hidden summits
old trees curl up their fingers
mountains embrace the earth
the wind blows echoes of holy spaces

and from the silent earth, the eternal roads are painted
a confluence of milky way, sublunar in vague
the gadabouts’ eyes are dancing as soft as air
     that bind the trace of galaxies
leaving their homes
away from the life of souls
there, there are souls that crave so deeply
for who is the owner of the universe lights?
