Rizma dan Pablo Neruda…….

Gara-gara baca tulisan Rizma di sini. Aku jadi teringat dengan puisi dari Pablo Neruda yang paling kusukai. Judulnya :

Sonnet XVII (100 Love Sonnet)

I don’t love you as if you were the salt-rose, topaz
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as certain dark things are loved,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that doesn’t bloom and carries
hidden within itself the light of those flowers,
and thanks to your love, darkly in my body
lives the dense fragrance that rises from the earth.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you simply, without problems or pride:
I love you in this way because I don’t know any other way of loving

but this, in which there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep it is your eyes that close.

Puisi didapet dari sini.

Pablo Neruda adalah pemenang Nobel Prize in Literature pada tahun 1971 asal Chile. Sempat jadi konsul di Batavia pada tahun 1920-an, sempat diasingkan karena protesnya terhadap presiden Gonzalez tahun 1947 dan meninggal dengan tragis pada tahun 1973.
