Be there wherever you are,

So nice to be said,

Not easy to experience.

Closed doors,

Vacant roads,

Calmness around,

Still not easy to be here.

[Batavia, 2019]

Note:

Being here for 2019 election, be with proven leadership.

Here But Away

A cup of coffee with sweetened milk,

A smoking clove cigarette in hand,

Friends to share the day;

That is enough reason for a smile;

Brightens the day …

[Batavia, 2019]

Note:

A photo captures a very short situation at the time the shutter is pressed .. but people have hopes for the future, and many placed their future with President Jokowi and work hard to assure him his second term of Presidency. This is to make sure we will keep our smile …

Smile, It’s Easy

The color Red,

Stands out from others,

Brings life to its surroundings,

For it lifts the spirit.

White,

Calms down.

A day out at the park,

People come and go,

Clouds pass by as wind blows,

Trees give shade and freshness,

Leaves grow old and fall,

Decomposed leaves fertilize trees,

The cycle of creation …

To look beyond what is seen,

To see through the surface,

Sometimes you needed additional tool,

To make things clear …

So, stop and think when you see something, is it really as it seems to be? 

Is there anything you need to see everything clearly ..

Be honest and look for the best.

This Is Not How You See It

Foundry Wall

Happiness is not black & white,
It really is something colorful,
So many things could represent it,
So many causes happiness,
It is not a one way lane,
It is not a single door as well,
More it is an abstract,
As it is not to be calculated,
Eventhough it is anticipated,
And many expected happiness.

Happiness lies within yourself,
You alone can answer the question,
You have to solve your own,
Than the quest for happiness is over.

Merry Christmas to all of you,
Peace be with you.

On Happiness

Upik The Panji Mask Dancer

Everybody must go through this stage,
Being born to the world,
Still pure without sin,
Everything is limited.

Panji Mask Dance

So do this mask character’s dance,
White resemblances a baby,
Movement is minimal,
Spirituality is the key.

[Cirebon 2014]

This is from a photo trip organised by Focus Nusantara and Fujifilm Indonesia to Cirebon.
