Brotherhood (part Wonosobo)

Menjer Lake is one of many places that we have to see when we are in Wonosobo. Menjer is a volcanic lake that "created" by eruption of mt. Pakuwaja. It's 70 hectare broad and about 45 m deep, located in Maron, sub district Garung, Wonosobo regency or about 500 m from my householder's home. It's named Menjer because Maron is a new village that named Menjer before. Formerly, the water of this lake comes from some little fountain and depend on rain season.

Then in colonial era, they build a hydropower from this lake. So they dam Serayu river partly to drain the water to the hydropower by big pipes. We can see that pipes when we drive in the hydropower to the lake. The street toward the lake was so beautiful with many pine trees on the roadside.

This gate isn't always open, but we can entry by the side gate. The ticket is very cheap, its only 3000 rupiah for adult. Or if we're &…

Menulislah !

Menulislah,
ketika kata tak dapat dicipta dari sebuah rasa
Ketika puncak emosi hanya terjerat,
tersendat, berkarat dalam jiwa
Menulislah,
ketika air mata mengambil alih bahasa
Ketika segala terasa susah dikata

Brotherhood (part Wonosobo)

"We're going to Wonosobo, then Batang on the following three days. Make a route with the GPS." my brother said in a quite morning. I haven't 100% wake up yet, so i just ignore it. You know, hearing something that too serious in the morning is just like a dream. Real or fantasy? I'm not realy sure. haha
the D-day comes! Mountain sandals, jeans, t-shirt plus jacket, and helmet. Yes, we are ready to go! No, we're not going by bus or car, we're motorcycling. By the GPS, i know that start on my place (Jogjakarta) to wonosobo needs about 4 hours with about 170km distance. So, we prepare the motorcycle, stamina, and of course our butt. We'll plan to get rest every 2 hours riding. Don't push ur self on driving, it'll be dangerous.
Wonosobo is a regency in central java. It's located between Sindoro and Sumbing mountain. So, you can imaging about how great the view is, the temperature, and also the people. Lies on about 300 to 2300 meter above sea …

sebuah perjalanan

Hari yang tiba-tiba melambat Angin berhembus menggurat pelipis menyibak keringat Anak rambut menari seolah menyapa mentari pagi Berjalan beriringan, bertutur tentang mimpi Mengumbar tawa mesra meski itu perjalanan pertama Sungguh, ingin kubunuh waktu ketika sedang bersamamu
Hari berubah terlalu cepat Angin masih berhembus Menyeka tulang pipi yang mulai mengering Anak rambut masih menari Meneriaki mendung yang sedari tadi menggantung Langkah kaki memendek, sesekali berhenti Menanyakan langkah kaki lain yang pernah berharmoni Bibir sempurna mengatup Mata nanar kini tertutup
Sungguh, Ingin kuputar waktu sesukaku ketika kau mulai pergi darihidupku
(Nurul Fatimah, suatu dinihari di bulan Agustus 2013)

Jalan usia

Nanar mata menatap senja

Berujar kisah masa yang tak berujung jua

Menengadah mencari pembela
Pada tiap helaan nafas yang tersisa
Terpanjatlah semua doa dan tawa
Menua bersama senja
Bernyanyi dipuncak suara, tiada
(Nurul Fatimah, 2013)


Dirgahayu Negriku, kucinta tanah, air, udara, alam, dan segala isimu
Namun kubenci dengan "penguasamu" yang lupa amanah
Terimakasih pahlawan Bangsaku, tanpamu hidupku sekarang belum tentu hidupku

Al-Faatihah...
