The Queen Bed
February 10, 2013

The queen bed is our

love throne,

the humble witness of

our kiss,

the vast cushion for

our embrace.

The queen bed is

where I find you with

your sweet eyes shut

tight, and

your wispy breath seeping in

and out,

thick black threads

of hair

framing your pale beauty.

It is where you find me

kissing your lips good night

and your eyes good morning,

where I praise the Lord during sunrise

for you

and beg to Him during moonrise

for you.

The queen bed is where

we find one more day to be together,

and one more day we’ve been together.

My breath you draw,

Your gasp I catch,

Skin to skin and

hand in hand,

always face to face,

cheek to cheek,

eyes in eyes and

lips in lips,

love to love and

life to live,

on the

majestic queen bed.

One Day I Will See You, God
February 9, 2013

To love another person is to see the face of God.” Hugo, Victor M.

One day I will look up to the sky,

and see a glimpse of your eyes.

The shape of your chin, the curve of your cheeks,

the strands of your lashes and the outline

of your lips.

One day I will look up to the sky

and see you, greater than the sun

without blocking its ray of life,

You who are looking down into

my little overwhelmed eyes.

You who say, “You are loved, my child,

and I love you.”

I love you

I love you

I love you echoing into my heart.

One day I will look up to the sky,

One day I will see you, God.

Mengenai Agama
February 9, 2013

Agama sepatutnya bukanlah sebuah kompartemen kotak dimana orang-orang harus memasukkan dan mentransformasikan dirinya sedemikian rupa hingga ia pun menjadi kotak. Kotak yang dengan paksaan dimasukkan hingga ke dalam celah-celah sempit yang notabene tidak akan bisa memuat benda sebesar kotak sehingga harus dibor ,digergaji, dan dipotong dinding-dindingnya agar bisa memuat kotak.

Agama adalah air yang mengalir dan dapat berubah bentuk tanpa berubah komposisi. Air yang bisa mengalir ke dalam lubang jarum maupun mengisi lautan, air yang bercampur dengan daun teh ataupun bubuk kopi supaya bisa ditenggak, air yang tanpa bentuk tetap dan tanpa menuntut dikenali menopang hidup segala makhluk di bumi.

Air bah menghancurkan, air sungai menghidupi. Air laut maupun air hujan, keduanya terasa asin, namun berbeda fungsinya. Air asin dan tawar menghidupi ikan yang berbeda. Air hangat mengompres dahi yang demam, air dingin menenangkan pipi yang bengkak.

Agama yang tanpa paksaan dapat menerima dan diterima, sungguh merupakan agama yang indah.
