[ac-i] Jangan Sekarang

Cuplikan SURAT BUNGA DARI UBUD,Putu Oka Sukanta


7. Jangan sekarang

cemas memacu jantung

kuda liar kutunggang dalam kendali

memanjat tebing kematian sepanjang malam

dalam kesendirian.

Kutarik nafas panjang berulangkali

menentramkan gelisah,

keliaran membentur kebuntuan

bunga yang merekah pagi tadi

telah jatuh di pangkuan rumput

mulai dimandikan embun

"ah, jangan kau bawa aku ke setra,

jangan malam ini, ketika sendiri."

Cemas memacu jantung

lari antara 190 /110

Kutarik nafas panjang berulangkali

"Leluhurku di khayangan,

aku masih mau menulis puisi."

Ubud, 15 Okt.2004.

Setra= kuburan

9. not now.

fear makes the heart beat faster

I put reins on a wild horse

and scale the cliffs of death all night long

in my aloneness.

I keep on drawing deep breaths

to still the fear

the wild ride ends in deadlock

the flowers that bloomed this morning

lying now in the lap of the grass

are washed in the cool of the night

"ah, don't take me to the graveyard tonight,

not tonight, when I'm all alone."

fear makes the heart beat faster

running at 190 over 110

I keep on drawing deep breaths

"You ancestral spirits looking down on me now,

there is still some poetry I have to write."

Ubud. 15 Oct 2004
