Poems for Mother Missing

Poems for Mother Missing

Mother
Where else would I rely
were spoiled
in between this wet season
I just heard your steps
between drizzling afternoon
first time
I pull out your gray hair
and counted
same
taught arithmetic

I'm sad
if the later dry season
Your gray hair messy
feel old
then turned to my shame
because of the drizzle that afternoon
you always ask
"I was young my son?"
I said smile

I do not have the heart
see you sad lament the decay
that in the history of time
wait for me were in-
where we had a farewell
the end of this wet season
I will harvest your gray hair

Puisi Rindu untuk Ibu

Bunda
kemana lagi aku bersandar
bermanja-manja
di antara musim basah ini
aku hanya mendengar langkahmu
di antara gerimis sore
kala dulu
aku mencabut ubanmu
dan menghitungnya
bersamaan
mengajarkanku berhitung

Aku sedih
jika nanti musim kering
ubanmu sembrautan
merasa tua
lalu malu menolehku
karena di antara gerimis sore itu
kau selalu bertanya
“aku masih mudakan nak?”
jawabku senyum

Aku tak tega
melihatmu sedih meratapi ketuaan
yang di jarah waktu
tunggu aku dipersimpangan
tempat perpisahan kita dulu
akhir musim basah ini
aku akan memanen ubanmu Ferdinaen Saragih (2009: Bandung).
