Hujan, Langit, Kelam

Semasa kecil, pernah ia bertanya pada bapanya.
"Pak, dimanakah Tahta Tuhan itu? Bila Dia di langit, dimanakah kakiNya berpijak?"
"Lalu, bila hujan turun, dimana Dia berteduh? Kalau malam, atau langit mendung, bagaimana Dia bisa melihat manusia di bawah, melihat rumah kita?"
Sang bapa tak bisa menjawab banyak, sekenanya, "nanti, secepatnya kamu mengerti."

.....


Berhentilah bumi berputar pada sumbunya, berhentilah jarum jam berputar.
Heninglah bumi sewaktu langit mencurahkan hujan, menggelapkan yang terlihat mata.
Aku hendak masuk ke dalam suaka di dalam diriku.
Tempatku melindungi hatiku, mengenang hal-hal baik yang orang perbuat bagiku.
Ialah jua tempatku menyerang diriku yang menghancurkan diriku.

Aku menyesali, aku mensyukuri. Aku mengutuk diri, aku berbangga diri.
Kebahagiaanku adalah kutukku. Kutuk yang kujalani adalah kebahagiaanku.

Ah, betapa kurangajarnya diriku...
Mengharap hujan membersihkan luka tertoreh di pepohonan suaka ini. Sepertinya harapku terlalu berlebihan.

Penyuka, pengagum hujan, aku menunggu. Menunggu bunyi air dari kedalaman jurang suakamu. Lalu terdiam, berbicara dalam bisu, memandang ke arah langit utara. Barangkali Tuhan masih bertahta disana.

Saat hujan, langit, kelam...

It's Costy to Live in Jakarta!

Sometimes, I do miss my earlier life, when everything's simple, cheap, and no hurriness. And that now occurs really often when I, let's say, reviewing my life for this ongoing almost two years out of home, finding who myself is and to be.

It occurs when I see and experience life in several sides of contrary, all by myself. Moving from and to diifferent town and cities. Got and get job. Having some friends here and there. And of course, getting my own comparison & studies of how much we have been spending money and efforts for daily life.

Before I went out of my town in North Sumatra, there were nothing to be worried of what we would eat tomorrow & later. It was not that our family was rich. Not at all. Though my father was a civil servant and his wife was making business at her own, everything was just fulfilled as they were. Food, we had plenty. Tasty snacks and cakes in the afternoon, you name it. Vacation, what is it anyway since everyday was almost vacation & leisure truly? School fee, there was nothing overdue to it. There was few good school to mention but most kids were going to the same public school, and we made our own competition. What else? Fitness center? Hah! We're naturally athletes. Air was also so pure, and there's always blue sky amazing our mind above. What else did we need??? Everything was there and how blessed our life was.

And now, this is Ele who is living in big city named Jakarta. Everything's looked running in its own pace. And money seems to be "too easy" to spend. Most things are valued at high fare.

I do live with my relatives here, but I want to live "normal" as most Jakartans, that you have to pay for the room you live in, eventhough it's your relative's house! So, waking up in the morning is then started by spending money for breakfast, & spending phone credits to check business e-mails. Later on you have to spend money for transportation fee which you deserve for; using buses to go to the office. No, it's not by using taxi service. Then buying expensive brunches and lunches, and so forth till the end of the day.

You must also buy milk, supplement vitamins, and mags-books so you can be always fit and have competency in mind. Wew! Later on, the weekend! It's very difficult to find a place where you can spend your weekend with minimum budget. Options are very limited, except you go to the malls which are everywhere here. It's hot here and there is no way out except going inside the mall. And of course, spending your money is a MUST! God!... Why isn't there any cheap public space to spend our days? And this traffic, it's "superb", it's weird. I hate it.

Now, you get the idea, right? No? Ok, I myself don't know what I'm talking about. I don't want to live forever here. Someday, I'll be back to my hometown. Up to now, still I have to spend more here, in Jakarta, all my money and efforts.

Bye, case is closed.

Bab Buku Yang Hilang

Satu bab di dalam buku kehidupan ini, pernah dianggap berlalu. Tapi, materi, jalan cerita, tokoh-tokohnya, masih memiliki pengaruh hingga beberapa masa yang lalu.

Adapun penulis buku menjadi bingung, hendak diapakan selanjutnya buku ini. Bagaimana ia bisa lepas dari pengaruh bab penting itu, kalau ia masih terus membaca bab setebal 365 halaman itu, yang hampir setiap isinya adalah kesuraman?

Keputusan gila! Keputusan gila! Bab itu harus diterbitkan jadi buku sendiri! Dan tidak diakui sebagai bagian buku kehidupan. Sebaliknya hanya dipercaya sebagai bab yang hilang! Yes! Yes!!!...

Namun, ada yang terasa mengganjal, ganjil. Bagaimana pembaca buku itu bisa tahu metamorfosa seorang naif menjadi seorang apatis, kalau cerita di bab yang hilang itu tak lagi diakui sebagai bab yang melengkapi buku ini? Ah, biarkan saja! Biarkan saja. Biarkan bab itu menjadi buku tersendiri. Biarkan buku ini hadir tanpa keberadaan bab tersebut.

.....

Banyak rahasia yang belum tersampaikan. Banyak perkara yang biarlah tetap menjadi tanda tanya.

Namun rahasia itu, tinggallah tetap. Hingga waktunya tiba, rahasialah rahasia itu adanya.

Pintu Yang Sama

Pintu yang sama, ruang yang sama.
Isinya, tak lagi sama.

Berbeda. Tak sama. Asing. Aneh. Ada yang hilang.

Dia tak siap menerima ini.
Ada lubang menganga.
Ada lubang yang harus diisi.

Ketika kubuka pintu itu, dekorasi di dalamnya tak lagi sama.

Tak lagi sama.

First Post

Finally! Another decision was made. And it was to blog again at this new "house".

New concept was managed to be conducted; a fully simple blog design as well as contents of this new blog (this "Village Kid and Blue Sky" theme is just temporary anyway). How will it be looked and experienced? You'll see it in just weeks. I can't write and design much due to lot of works have to be finished by the end of this month.

So, here we go. This new blog is officially launched!
