Tanah Lot*


Ini karang terjal di atas pantai,

sedang di depan, air laut menyambut pasir

dan kembali ke tengah berselimut buih

Angin semilir mengajak menari dahan kelapa,

melambai, bergesek, berbisik.

Ah, cantik nian Tanah Lot.

Berhias gua menawan namun keramat dikata orang.

Petang datang menangkap bayang-bayang,

mengajak air laut pasang,

mengisi cekungan sebelah gua.

Tembang doa berkumandang, diiringi wangi kembang,

mengingatkan orang-orang untuk sembahyang,

bersyukur dan memuja di Pura.

Lampu-lampu berpendar tanda malam harus bekerja.

Sedang aku harus pulang, kembali ke Singaraja

Singaraja, 12 April 2005

 

So I made this poem for a homework back when I was in elementary. lol

Despite of its silly words, I’m admitting that I like this poem. Coz it does really reminds me of great moments I ever had back when I live in Singaraja, Bali. Especially a vacation when my fam and I spent a day in Tanah Lot–we watched the sunset and dropped in some souvenir stands under shimmering dull lamps.  Those memories are really splendid and unforgettable. Hopefully someday I can get back there for vacation (and nostalgia) 🙂
