Ketika Malam Berbicara

The Night -1

Malam dalam ketenangannya….

Ketika rintik hujan menemani segelas hangatnya teh pahit

Menghitung detik yang tersisa tanpa bisa bertanya

Ketika sepi mengisi ceruk dan kata-kata memudar dalam celah sempit

The night-5

Malam berkata melalui mimpinya

Ketika jalanan nan sepi berderap menghilang

Menjadi saksi akan jiwa yang meringkuk kelelahan …terdiam dan tak berteman

Dalam nafas pilu yang mungkin esok tak kan kembali

The Night-6

Ketika malam berbicara….

Dalam keheningannya

Entah bagaimanakah aku kan bisa melukisnya

Dalam goresan sederhana…

Ketika alam semesta sebenarnya menampakkan keanggunannya …

The Night-7

Selamat datang malam…….

Kau ceritakan kembali kisahmu …

The Night-4


Celotehan malam hari

Yang ditulis pagi hari

Weekly Photo Challenge – My 2012 in Pictures

December – end of year 2012, I spent the Friday night for sightseeing  the Surabaya city at night, the second largest city in Indonesia. It was 2 days before 1st of January,  I grabbed my camera and went to the fisherman village for taking the Suramadu bridge picture located on Java strait. The beach was very crowded that night, most people spent the time to have dinner with their spouse & family. Most of the people were preparing the new year eve celebration.

The stars were bright that night, the air is so warm and I thought it was a cheerful and colorful night, until I saw a little girl with her father went fishing. They look so hungry like nothing to eat. The old man just prepared his fishing kit while his daughter followed him and standing behind, hoping that little fish take the bait. While most of the people that night laughing, sharing the happiness, those two people just silent in the crowd, enjoying the night just hoping that night they could have a nice dinner with a grilled fish.

This post is dedicated to my father and Sara Roso for the Weekly Photo Challenge


A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.


A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.


A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them
