Everything Is Untold

11:27 PM | Labels: , | No Comment »

Nothing is tougher
than the raining of June.
It keeps its own little miss
to that flowered tree.

Nothing is wiser
than the raining of June.
It vanishes its own foot traces
which was doubtful along the way.

Nothing is more kind
than the raining of June.
It lets what was untold
absorbed by that flowered tree.

(Free translation of Sapardi Djoko Damono poem titled 'Hujan Bulan Juni')

Erasing Your Name

God can do anything,
also take my life away.
But there is one thing that
God can't do,
erasing your name from my heart...

Loving You Simply

I want to love you simply
with the words were untold
by the wood to fire that had burnt it to ashes.

I want to love you simply
with the sign were undelivered
by the cloud to the rain that had made it vanished.

(Free translation of Sapardi Djoko Damono poem titled 'Aku Ingin')
