Sajak - Apa Khabarmu, GENTING?



Apa khabarmu, GENTING?

kumuntahkan amarahku
ke perut rimbamu, Genting
biarkan duka laraku
tumbuh menjadi pepohon bahagia
memayungi generasi
tentang wangi budi
maha mahal integrasi
nikmat rahmat integriti
dalam kehidupan insan
yang kian bobrok
kedaifan kemanusiaan
di rumah muhibah

sejujurnya, Genting
udara hening beningmu
menghadiahiku ruang
untuk bernafas bebas
tanpa belenggu
hiruk-pikuk kota yang lemas
tipu muslihat warga yang ganas
biarpun belum mampu kutelaah
sejarah indah alammu
atau dapat kutafsir
rahsia buana yang berona
di Banjaran Titiwangsamu yang kaya
flora fauna kehidupan
abad-berabad lamanya
apa khabarmu, Genting?

Chai Loon Guan,

"Winter Solstice" menjelang Tahun Baharu Cina 2015...

Winter solstice is an astronomical phenomenon which marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. Winter solstice occurs for the Northern Hemisphere in December and for the Southern Hemisphere in June.

The axial tilt of Earth and gyroscopi
c effects of the planet's daily rotation keep the axis of rotation pointed at the same point in the sky. As the Earth follows its orbit around the Sun, the same hemisphere that faced away from the Sun, experiencing winter, will, in half a year, face towards the Sun and experience summer. This is because the two hemispheres face opposite directions along the planetary pole, as one polar hemisphere experiences winter, the other experiences summer.

More evident from high latitudes, a hemisphere's winter solstice occurs on the shortest day and longest night of the year, when the sun's daily maximum elevation in the sky is the lowest. The winter solstice itself lasts only a moment in time, so other terms are used for the day on which it occurs, such as "midwinter", or the "shortest day". It is often considered the "extreme of winter" (Dongzhi in the Chinese calendar), although in meteorology winter spans the entire period of December through February. The seasonal significance of the winter solstice is in the reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days. The earliest sunset and latest sunrise dates differ from winter solstice, however, and these depend on latitude, due to the variation in the solar day throughout the year caused by the Earth's elliptical orbit (see earliest and latest sunrise and sunset).

Worldwide, interpretation of the event has varied from culture to culture, but many cultures have held a recognition of rebirth, involving holidays, festivals, gatherings, rituals or other celebrations around that time. (Sumber: Wikipedia)

Sajak - Gua Cinta


GUA CINTA

sekian lama
tercari-cari aku
jalan pulang
dalam kegelapan
gua hidup
tanpa bintang
tanpa bulan
di sinilah,
mentari seolah-olah
tersipu-sipu malu
membiarkan cintaku
terpenjara
di dada stalagmitmu
terbelenggu
di dada stalaktitmu

syukur
dalam tafakur
hadir desir
pawana merdu
membelai azamku
indah alam-Mu
menyemarakkan pawaka cintaku
pada-Mu, kekasih

fatamorgana
atau berahi pura-pura
sedang berilusi
di minda halusinasi?
oh, Tuhanku
benarkah
lewat senja usia ini
asmaralokaku
kembali mahu bercumbu
di pintu gua cintamu?

Sajak - Ceritera Katak



CERITERA KATAK

pernah berkata
peribahasa
seperti katak
di bawah tempurung
mundur hidup
masih terkurung
di dunia murung
terbelenggu sepi
terpenjara asing
jumud dan tersisih

bangkit
bangkitlah, kita
mendepani masa
umpama katak
di atas tempurung
mencari ruang
menghargai peluang
agar tidak jemu, kita
menimba ilmu
agar tidak lesu, kita
mendalami pengalaman
agar tidak bosan, kita
menangani cabaran
agar tidak putus asa, kita
mencipta kemajuan
di rumah impian
di rumah wawasan
lokal, glokal, global
nusa bangsa tercinta!

Sajak - Matematik CINTA



Matematik CINTA

bahagi masa
antara tugas dengan keluarga
darab rindu
agar bertambah akrab
intim bersepadu
di rumah kehidupan
tolak cemburu ungu
yang memburu
yang membelenggu
duniaku duniamu
tanpa waktu
tanpa malu
tambah kasih
kukuh ukhuwah
dalam musyawarah
wangi ibadah
penuh amanah
penuh hikmah
dalam muzakarah
di buana cinta
di buana agama
di buana bahasa
di buana bangsa
di buana nusa!
