ODE OF BIRTH (reloaded)

This night I saw the sky
illuminated by millions of star
sparkling smiling for attaining the bliss
blessed by God upon His servant
While the moon had a beautiful face
to be shown to name of gentleness and blossom
Its rounded in full shape, cherishing everyone
who wish harmony and amity in life

I astonished for whom does God make up those loveliness
for I saw Io, Callisto, Europa and Ganimede
flying around The Big Jupiter with a beam
celebrated by their harmonious hop
And Nebula's belt surrounding the heavens
like a rainbow consisted of thousands, millions,
even billions of stars and constellations
giving their osculate upon today

Today, when the Virgo brought
Venus, Mars, and Mercury in her left hand
while the Sun hoisted sweetly upper the arms
like an angel send down to this pity humble man
I don't really know what happens
for I escalate to azure and up go to celestial sphere
There, I saw footpaths of auspexes straight upward
the magnanimity of God's cosmic throne

On my way I was intersected by hilarious Andromeda
Her hands was chained on the rock
while in background, I saw Pegasus
flying high with spirit of stallion

She said,
"Did you ever know
Why did God created all of thus allure?
Only to illustrious the day when beauty
Sent down to earth
A genesis of a gorgeous lady
With shiny and glittery eyes
Intoxicated entire mortal soul
Enchanted them who wish to see God face".

"Did you ever know
When Gabriel open his wings widely
For warmth, affection and fondness
In his way to sanctify this day?
The day of beginning, the birth,
Of our softness bloom".

Then thousands of angels fallen down
filling the sky by atmosphere of joy and contentment
their arms widely open giving illusion
of smiling haze, and sang
with amazing choir

"In the name of God
The infinitely
Compassionate and Merciful
Praise be to Him, Lord of all the worlds
Who has shaped a beauty for human
Through His servant
A completely astonishing and wonderful
With whom kindheartedness and flower
Unified in name of beauty
God, please bless her
Consecrate her present
As a precious gift for the human race
God, please guard her
From treacherous evil
And make her way
As a part of Your obedience servants"

At the end, I saw culmination
Of words flew into the earth
Like starlight in meteor rain
Brightened sky with effervescence
Showered universe with enormous hope,
Faith, delight and gratification
Giving Andromeda her deliverance

I stood in dubious
My feet frozen by those enlightenment
changed me into stardust
What a wonder if a met this beautiful lady
What a fortunate if I can see her charms everyday
praising God on His lightheartedness day after day
for she is the light, a guidance, the torch in dark nights
What an incredible day
What an amazing birthday!

  1. Aih, virgo ?
    hmmm.. apa bener ya astrologi itu benar-benar bs diandalkan untuk memetakan kepribadian manusia? Kadang aku ngerasa ramalan2 astrologi itu mujarab sih. Hidup trnyt tak selamanya logis kali yaa.

    Aku yang Leo ini patah hati dg seorang gadis Virgo. Gak cocok kali ya ? Ayo..ayo..ayo.. apa mitologi Yunani punya jawaban ttg itu ?

    ( Udaaah.. gak usah jd pemikir. Ribet. Jadi peramal ajaaa.. :p )

  2. Hhhh... Son, ini bukan Astrologi, tapi Astronomi. Selain dikenal sebagai nama zodiak, Virgo juga merupakan nama sebuah konstelasi bintang. Karena ga punya teropong bintang, saya melihat konstelasi ini lewat program Planetarium di komputer, mau? Cuma memang gak ada ramalannya sih, lagian juga ramalan kan hanya perpanjangan tangan dari pikiran. Bukannya tugas ekonom itu juga meramal masa depan?:p By the way, puisi ini juga untuk orang virgo, ya ... begitulah.
