An influencer. A soul-quencher. A measuring bar.
This book has been a classic answer whenever I got the classic question: "if you can only keep one book in a stranded island until God knows when, what will it be?"
First, poems don't easily bore you for they can have limitless interpretations. Second, Hujan Bulan Juni will definitely shower you with magnificient, well-crafted, yet simple and striking metaphors. "Hujan Bulan Juni" and "Aku Ingin" remain as my eternal favorites.

I find his infatuation with the rain romantic and beautiful and beautiful and beautiful (I like romanticizing everything). Some poems are too dark and had me like "whoa" but the words are still beautiful, anyway.

"Pandangmu hening di permukaan telaga dan rindumu dalam"

4 out of 5 stars.
I'm just gonna leave this not rated. The poems are too beautiful to be completely understood by my teeny teeny sobbing brain.

There are many dimensions of Sapardi Djoko Damono's poems. At times, they are sacred and dark, reminding us of how immortal we are as human beings and about our relationships with God. Take a part of Tangan Waktu as an example:

"selalu terulur ia lewat jendela
yang makin keras dalam pengalaman
mengarah padamu tambah tak tahu
memegang leher bajumu"


or a part of Sajak Desember:

"masih patutkah kuhitung segala milikku
selembar celana dan selembar baju
ketika kusebut berulang nama-Mu: taram-

Despite his poem are influenced partially (to not say : wholly) by TS Eliot, he has been very successful in finding his way, his recent poems posted in KOMPAS (in June 2007) remains same: IMAGERY (at the beginning is smooth and simply and when comes into end... very shocking!)

the way he write the poem is also influenced by his childhood in Jawa tengah - Solo. The idioms of "Daun Jambu" is the one which deeply casted in my brain. I imagine my childhood also with very similar

This book contains ultimate poem collection of Sapardi Djoko Damono. This book is written in Indonesian, but sapardi's poems are well-known and had been translated to english too.
I think this book is very very very brilliant. the chosen poems are romantic, and though i'm not a master in poetry, i can still enjoy the beautiful words. my favorite poems are 'Aku Ingin (I Want)' and 'Hujan Bulan Juni (Rain in June)'. very much recommended.

i don't own the book actually. it belongs to my college library when i decide to read the book. I was interested to a poem entitled "Aku Ingin" but then, I love the entire poems here on the book.
Besides, reading a poem will never be a boring thing to do. because you can always have a new interpretation each time you read and try to understand the poem.

the first poetry book I read. the first poetry book I read backward from the last page to the first. I am very fond of Sapardi's diction and thought. I found him as a Nature lover since he talked about rain much in his poetry. rain, some people think it's a misery but he thinks as an inspiration and gifts. I love this book!

Sapardi Djoko Damono, one of my favorite poets. His poems are his view on life, without many embellishment, simple words reflects the depth of his mind on what we refuse or miss to see in our daily lives.

My personal fave: Pada Suatu Malam
life is a long prayer, indeed

I really loves the following sentence of Aku Ingin in this book. Aku ingin mencintaimu dengan sederhana (Makes me wonder how life is so simple).

People who think all that Sapardi matters is "Aku Ingin" must read this book first to understand that said poem is only a piece of the whole.

“tak ada yang lebih tabah
dari hujan bulan Juni
dirahasiakannya rintik rindunya
kepada pohon berbunga itu

tak ada yang lebih bijak
dari hujan bulan Juni
dihapusnya jejak-jejak kakinya
yang ragu-ragu di jalan itu

tak ada yang lebih arif
dari hujan bulan Juni
dibiarkannya yang tak terucapkan
diserap akar pohon bunga itu”
