(Multilingual Reflection) : Harapan Baru/ New Hope/ Nouvel Espoir/ Nuova Speranza

Sang surya kembali ke peraduan
Sang rembulan terbangun ke langit bersama bebintang
Aku tersadar dari impi lamaku
Saatnya meninggalkannya
Ada jalan membentang
Di dalam gelap
Aku tak takut lagi
Ada rembulan dan gemintang kan temaniku
Dengan cinta
Dengan jiwa baru
Harapan terpendar
Di ujung sana
Seiring cahya rembulan
Aku kan menujunya
Walau gelap dan berliku

Menuju impianku


The sun has set into its sleeping dwell
The moon is about to the sky with the stars
I woke up from my old dreams
It’s time to let it behind
There’s a long way in front of me
In the dark
I am no longer afraid of it
The moonlight and stars are my friends
With love
With a new hope
Which sparkles
Over there
Along with the silver moonlight
I’ll be there
Whether easy or rocky

To my dreamt dream

Nouvel Espoir
Le soleil est couché
La lune a augmenté avec les étoiles
Je me suis réveillé de mon vieux rêve
Il est temps de laisser derrière
Il ya un long chemin devant
Dans le noir
Mais, Je ne suis plus peur
J’ai Le clair de lune et les étoiles comme mes amis
Avec l’amour
un nouvel espoir
qui brille
Avec ce clair de lune d’argent
Je serai là
Bien que la voie est imprévisible
Pour mon rêve

La Nuova Speranza

Il sole è tramontato alla sua camera da letto
La luna è volato al cielo con le stelle
Sono svegliato dai miei vecchi sogni
E ‘tempo di lasciarlo dietro
C’è una lunga strada davanti
Nel buio della notte
Ma, Non sono più paura
Ho la luce della luna e le stelle come i miei amici
con l’amore
Con una nuova speranza
che scintilla
con la luce della luna d’argento
Io ci sarò
Anche se il modo è difficile

Nel mio sogno

Terima kasih/Thank you/ Merci/ Grazie

Happy Javanese New Year & Islamic New Year


New year is always celebrated
By wishing all the best
Better achievement in the following year
By torch marches
Recite holy verses
In the mosques
Or washing keris rites
Among traditional Javanese people

I celebrate two new years at the same time
Javanese and Islamic New Year
I type Javanese first as it is older than Islamic one
Now its 1948 in Javanese calendar
While 1436 in Islamic
Javanese calendar is based on Ajisaka’s arrive to Java in around 78 AD
While Islamic is based on Rasulullah SAW PBUH hijra to Madinah

Why both are celebrated at the same time?
It is because of Mataram’s Sultan Agung role
Some consider it mystical
But for me it is a new hope
New year is always a new hope
May Gusti Allah bless us
From this year and on

Sugeng Warsa Enggal 1948 He
Happy Islamic New Year 1436 Hijriyah

For all Javanese and Muslims in the world

Weekly Photo Challenge : Refraction / Pembiasan

When I see the refracted lights
I see another world over thereThe magically refracted illusion
Over my eyes
Over my mind
Flow over my heart
Colourful and mysterious
I am finding out my refracted one
Though I know it’s inside me

(Sunday’s Reflection) : Among The Books – A Poetry


This the place I want to stay forever
Be drowned among millions of knowledges
They are my real and truly friends
Open the millions gates to the truth
From the bitterness to the sweetness of live
Love, hatred, affection, surprise, anger and more
From the past to the present
I love to be au millieu of them
In a quiet place, only silence
Just read, read and then…inspired
This is the place I want to live
It is the sea of knowledge for me
Though many love the digitalized one
