Selesai

Ah ya, malam bukan lagi waktu menunggu.

Kita tak lagi saling memburu.

Jadi biarkan saja tunas-tunas sepi bertumbuh dalam sunyi.

Seperti perih yang pasti mengering.

Ini bukan apa-apa.

Kita tidak selamanya mengada.

Selesaikanlah sampai disini.

“Untuk mengada, kita tidak hanya punya jatah tempat.
Tapi juga rentang waktu yang telah ditetapkan.”
(Jostein Gaarder – Gadis Jeruk)

The Blessed Unrest

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy,

a quickening that is translated through you into action.

And because there is only one of you in all of time,

this expression is unique.

And if you block it,

it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.

The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is

nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions.
It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly,

to keep the channel open.

You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.

You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you.

Keep the channel open.

No artist is pleased.

There is no satisfaction whatever at any time.

There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction,

a blessed unrest that keeps us marching

and makes us more alive than the others.

–Martha Graham to Agnes De Mille

Saujana

Karma adalah setapak di tengah belukar

Di mana kita setiap hari

mengikis jalan

selebar langkah kaki

Mimpi adalah hal yang diyakini terjadi

seperti keyakinan atas terbitnya matahari

setiap pagi

menyapa bumi

Dan hidup adalah kita yang menusuri setapak menuju sebuah tempat tak tahu serupa apa,

tak tahu sejauh apa, setinggi apa sedalam bagaimana.

Berbekal kepercayaan,

semoga mampu mencapai sempurna.
