7 cm

Basah, namun tak sebutir air hujan pun yang jatuh. Gerah, tapi cahaya bulan tentu tak bisa menyengat. Asin, sengaja atau tidak, terkadang kau pun pernah merasakannya bukan? Berhimpitan dengan banyak orang dalam kendaraan umum memang tak terlalu nyaman. Tapi sepertinya lelah ini membuatku tak berdaya untuk memprotes situasi. Apalagi senja itu aku cukup senang mendapatkan banyak inspirasi.

Deru kendaraan mengerang tanpa henti. Bunyi nada F yang dikeluarkan klakson saling bersahutan. Sayangnya ketiadaan harmoni menjadikan itu semua sekedar kebisingan. Kukira jalan ini sudah cukup lebar. Tapi tetap saja besi-besi ini masih harus merayap. Dengan jumlah mobil sebanyak ini, mungkin sedikit sangsi jika Indonesia dikatakan sebagai negara miskin. Ah, tak perlulah aku meributkan urusan yang tak pernah kumengerti ini. Kuperhatikan bulan gompal di atas sana. Tak seindah seperti yang digambarkan puisi. Hampir membentuk sabit, melengkung seperti senyum yang kulihat sore itu. Senyum yang mengembang 7 …

Tersesat

Image
Derap kalam berdesis

Sepertiga kesunyian hampa

Aku terjaga dalam buta

Sesak mendobrak bendungan air mata

Membanjiri tanah kering meronta

Namun hanya sekedar basah



Mencari ujung jalan tak berasal

Aku tersesat tanpa alamat

Kaki terseok tapi terus berlari

Aku tuli dengan deru bisikan itu

Menyebrang tanpa menoleh

Kau biarkan aku mengejar umpan jebakan



Tetes demi tetes

Tapi bukan salah darah dalam nadi

Ini konspirasi nafsu dan naluri

Entah ini tikungan ke berapa

Lariku tak melambat

Walau tapak penuh darah

Merah menumpuk hitam



Cukuplah waktu bergulir sia-sia

Percumakah kusebut nama-Mu

Jalanku tak bercabang

Aku terjebak dalam lintasan kuda

Berharap ada pintu terbuka

dan menemukan padi yang tumbuh dari airku

APSIA #2: Encouraging Self for Public Speaking

Image
The sun had long enough arose, but its shine was being blocked by thin cloud. It was drizzling outside there. At the 6th floor of UI’s library, auditorium room was quite empty. It was 07.30 as arrival schedule, but only few who had come. I knew two of them are committees but neither did with the other one, a girl with black T-shirt, blue jeans, and pink sneakers.

APSIA second meeting was held at 23th february 2013. Under title "Presenting with impact"  APSIA member were trained to give presentation and public speaking. The speaker invited to train us was so great woman, Tantia Dian Permata. She is the achiever of the most famous achievement for undergraduate students in Indonesia, Mapres Utama Nasional 2010. How unexpectable she was when she came forward  with his unique fashion that I have told before. She also had very short hair such as a boy, but still looked gorgeous. At least she had changed his T-shirt with more polite shirt.

At the beginning presentation Tantia told he…

APSIA #1: Finding Original Idea on Writing

First of all, I would like to ask apologize for leaving very first APSIA meeting in this semester. I knew it was interesting and priceless meeting. However I couldn’t attend it because I had to give a training at a high school. Before I got APSIA announcement I had been invited to teach for economics olympiad preparation. Its hard for me to reject it because Ican't find the substitution. I don’t think this essay could replace my absence in the meeting. But at least I have responsibility to do the task as a member of APSIA. Although I only got  limited resource from interviewing friend, I still have to write this resume.
Saturday, 16/02/2013 first meeting of APSIA in second semester was held. The members of APSIA gathered at K301 Faculty of Technology UI.

The other was Windy Ariestanty, book author and Gagas Media auditor. Then the…
