"The Yaslehs

Since 1968, when his first poem Sebuah Sumpah Derhaka was published in Majalah Mastika, our dad, yassinsalleh, has written voraciously, but at the same time is so disorganized that we could hardly keep track of what he has written. It is even worse now that he writes his poems in his phone and sms it to us his children. Believe you me, he spent a lot of money on smsing long poem to us that is sometimes lost to accidental deleting. So we, his three children - Yasleh Rita Ayu, Yasleh Hani Wati, and Yasleh Khaliff Amri - decided that enough is enough, we need to keep some kind of record of his poetry, thus the creation of this blog. This will be a cache to collect all his old poems and a safe to keep all his future ones. In the film world, mentioning my dad's name will immediately brings to mind his 10 awards winning film Dia Ibuku in which he personally won 2 - Best Director and Best Screenplay- but in the literary world the poem ikan-ikan di kaca is synonymous to him, hence the name of this blog.

ikan-ikan di kaca
(buat adik-adikku tom dan ani)

pun mentari sudah tiada api
dan bulan yang merdu
sudah sejuk nyanyinya
di hujung jari jemari embun
kita masih belum terlalu lewat
untuk menerima satu hakikat

ia,
kita anak-anak satu keturunan
yang menganuti escapisme
selama ini
hanyalah
ikan-ikan di kaca
ia
ikan-ikan di kaca.

ikan-ikan di kaca indah alamnya
ikan-ikan di kaca gemulai renangnya
ikan-ikan di kaca manja hidupnya
ikan-ikan di kaca terpenjara sebenarnya.

tidak lama lagi
embun
akan kering
dan mentari
berapi kembali
kuharap
kalian sudah mengerti
bahawa kita
selama ini
hanyalah
ikan-ikan di kaca
esok
masihkah kita
ikan-ikan di kaca?

nyanyi SimfoniPILU yassinsalleh - Ejaannya Sudah Lama Dipadamkan




Malam bulan dipagar bintang.
Membelai rindu pungguk mendayu
Memujuk Upiek pilu menunggu
Melambai Buyung di rantau sayu

Siang matari ditabir awan.
Merentas langit menyinar kehidupan
walau apapun jua yang merintang
tiba senja tanpa mungkir sampailah ia
melabuhkan tabir malam sempadan hari
mendinginkan bara pasir krikil sahara
menghidupkan lampu rumah api
menyalakan bintang-bintang langit tinggi
penunjuk arah pemandu hala
kapal di laut kafilah di daratan.

Demikian bulan, bintang-bintang dan matari
masing-masing
menyempurnakan tadbiran alam
yang diwajibkan ke atas mereka
setulus ketelusan penuh setia.

Dalam demikian
manusia kian jua seperkasanya
memalamkan siang, mensiangkan malam
dan merelaikan bintang-bintang dari tangkainya
satu demi satu gugur
jadi debu jadi duli di bawah telapak kaki
yang disorongkan kepala
mohon diinjakkan  lagi dan lagi  dan lagi
atas nama setia
sang buta, si tuli dan bisu
yang merata dan melata jalan tak berpeta
arah tak berpedoman
hala tak keruan
qiblat tak terbacakan
ejaannya sudah lama dipadamkan.
