Bicara Tanda Mendengar

Kusampaikan sajak ini
Karena kamu mendengar
Kusampaikan sajak ini
Supaya aku tetap bicara
Dan kamu tetap mendengar

Kulukiskan hatimu langit
Menunggu terbitnya matahari
Bicara untuk mendengar
Mendengar untuk bicara
Dengan Puisi Leluhurmu

Selamat Ulang Tahun Muhammad Abid Manik
(Kumpulan Puisi Hadiah Seorang Ayah, Karya Eka Budianta, 2007)

Speak to show you have listened

I am sending you this poem
Simply because you listen
I am sending you this poem
So I can keeping talking
And you keep listening

I am painting your heart a sky
Waiting for the rising sun
Speaking to listen and
Listening to speak
With your ancestor poetry
Happy Birthday Muhammad Abid Manik
(Selected Poems, A Father’s Gift, By Eka Budianta, 2007)
