LAYANG-LAYANG

LAYANG-LAYANG

Layang-layang putus benang

Mengembara mengawal angin.

Angin ke barat aku mbandhang ke barat.

Angin ke timur kulepas ke timur.

Jika angin utara bertiup,

Kencang keterbang ke selatan;

Jika angin dari selatan datang,

Mengembara ku ke utara…

Penerbang layang-layang tak kuasa menggapai

Layang-layang yang melambung dibawa sang bayu.

Hujan segera tiba,

Apakah layang-layang akan menjadi bubur?

Penerbang layang-layang gundah-gulana

Diterpa badai kebingungan kalah lomba-

Lomba main layangan tanpa putus benang…

Layangan tak kuasa berhenti

Meluncur terus ke arah padang hijau

Yang berbatas hutan hijau nan gelap

Kanopi itu pasti banyak monyetnya

Apakah mereka akan merobeki tubuhnya?

Jika ya, tamatlah riwayat layangan bernama

Aku…

Kugesekkan badan pada deburan angin

Supaya tertahan perjalananku

Lalu segera jatuh ke bumi

Dan ditemukan anak-anak yang polos

Yang bersorak-sorai mengharapkan kejatuhanku

Mereka gembira

Karena aku goncang dan oleng

Tak lalgi ngebut menghantam rimba…

Tapi aku masih belum dalam jangkauan tangan-tangan mungil itu

Aku merendah

Merendah

Makin merendah

Hap!

Tangan kecil, lembut dan dingin

Menangkapku

Melindungiku

Dari rebutan teman-temannya

Yang menyeringai seperti buta

Lalu dibawanya aku pulang

Ke rumah

Tempatnya menyimpan benang…
