Telur salmon

Jamuan siang itu adalah tiga tumpukan bola-bola telur salmon
Di atas gumpalan nasi berbalut selendang oranye tipis
Disusun cermat dalam tiga lingkaran bersinggungan
berhias parutan lobak putih dan irisan lemon

Kau tahu, bola-bola oranye pucat itu
tentu telah menempuh sekian kilometer dengan kecepatan tinggi
untuk tiba di sini dengan kesegaran yang menyentak lidah
Seperti letupan kembang api di udara basah,
tajam lembut lumer mengembangkan senyuman
menumpas rasa tak puas

Kuingin kau mengenang siang ini
Dua tiga puluh tahun lagi
tetap membuatmu tersenyum
Seperti masih hari ini


Story of picture

Your eyes can bring life to the death
Those faces frozen in time, framed in the wall,
shining from pages, beaming from screens
Waving from ageless past
All suddenly come alive just by your gaze

Your eyes can bring death to the living
When you pause their breath
By a touch to stop the flow of time
The moment you see will forever stand-still
Racing into the countless future

And for a tiny second, you and I meet in a timeless eternity

So it is like this

What I see when the sun goes down
Is the birth of a new day
So cherish my heart with the warmth that remained

When the new day is born
I find poetry in the perfect morning
With bright sky after rain
I know... night is the darkest precisely just before sunrise
