cerita tentang kunang-kunang

Udah dua minggu ini aku rutin pulang ke Klaten. Menjenguk Kakung yang beberapa waktu lalu pingsan di sawah. Melihat perkembangan kesehatannya yang makin membaik dan dia juga makin kuat, seneng rasanya.. 

Sering pulang ini bikin aku banyak bernostalgia masa-masa aku kecil di sana. Selain suka bantu --lebih banyak ngerecoki sebenernya. hahaha...-- kakung yang membantu kambing yang kami piara melahirkan, lari-laki keliling kampung kalo mo dikerokin atau disuruh pake rok, dan duduk-duduk di halaman berumput manila kami, di sana aku sangat suka nangkepin kunang-kunang. 

Aku suka narok mereka di genggaman tanganku.
Suka bikin lubang-lubang di tanah trus diisi dedaunan dan ditutup pake plastik yang dilubangi. Trus tiap kali ada kunang-kunang yang ketangkep, dimasukanlah dia ke situ.
Suka bikin fireflies lantern, entah pake botol atau pake toples.

Sejak kecil aku suka memandangi sesuatu yang bercahaya. Aku suka memandangi matahari, memandangi bulan, memandangi bintang, memandangi lampu, memandangi fireworks, bahkan memandangi nyala api di tungku. Dan tentunya, aku suka sekali memandangi kunang-kunang. It was so wonderful..

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
Cause they'd fill the open air
And leave tear drops everywhere
You'd think me rude but I would just stand and
Stare

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems

Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
A sock-hop beneath my bed
The disco ball is just hanging by a thread

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems
(When I fall asleep)

Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
Cause I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep?
(Please take me away from here)
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep
(Ha-ha)

To ten million fireflies
I'm weird cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell
But I'll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems
(When I fall asleep)

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

And thank to Owl City for the Fireflies song...
