I can't mention why so feel blue, when read Nokturno and Belimbing Wuluh poem... It all written by Sapardi Djoko Damono or with his academic degree : Prof Dr Sapardi Djoko Damono. Some say, he is a romantic grandpa. But it's true when you read his poem. Maybe you all know one of his poem, which titled AKU INGIN, it's published at his poem book, internet and inspirated many author, stories writer, and poem writer. I see it in a ALPHA WIFE novel, maybe at first page the author written about AKU INGIN... it's inspired her actually.
It was romantic in simple words, but meaningful.
