She named it so. For suppose it will usually arrive simultaneously with the arrival in April. A feeling that is born of joy to welcome the month of April. A burst of flavor that comes from the soul when the month of April arrived. She too smiled. Finally, suppose it is also undefined. Sense of April. Pain is to “April”.
When she was smiling, smiling at herself, something pierce her soul. Something flushed with happiness. Like a green colour around her. Cool. Soft. Heartfelt embrace until a relief and peace emerged. Maybe like arrow from above lover come to her heart.

Hm, you must be dont know what’s “Ilalang”. It’s a wildgrass in tropical country. It latin name’s Imperata Cylindrica. Other country named it as “Cogon Grass”. She really…. yearned that grass. I dont know why. Maybe…..cause she has some nice memories with Ilalang. If she bored with something, she imagine that grass. As if the graas in the front of her. That’s why I call her with My Ilalang Woman. In Indonesian language Perempuan Ilalangku.
Here’s her note about Ilalang:
it’s was me The Ilalang’s quite and distant. Undulating in the breeze, to the left and right, sometimes iamlessly. I was lonely distant reeds there. Far away from the busy people with all thir activities. Iam the grass is far away from all the word goes wild. I weed it is.
That’s the smile of this morning that I found from beside my house. As a tropical country, Indonesia has a lot of kind of orchid. I’am not sure what kind of orchid this mine. But, I like it. I called it as “si Unguku”, my purple.
As if she smile to me. As if she kissed my face. I dont know why those sentimental sense come to me this morning. Dunno. Well, I hope you take the smile of your morning, too.
In a spot of this earth, when the day was sunny. Two women were walking in the middle of the dry grassland. Steps the women were staight. The sun was directly overhead both. In their minds, a million hope and dreams of a better life for the families in mind flowing warms as they hurried home while upholding a pile of grass and firewood in the head.
Two women are accidentely I found when I was suddenly missing my dream about a grassland at this afternoon. Weeds not beautiful as I had found. This a grassland dry reeds. And dry grass when even bring this beautifully turnmoil in the minds of excitement…? Something that I could not answer .
In the shadow behind the two women, I see the spirit. As if they were walking in the front of me. As if I could hear them snorting breath too short conversatition both about rice, sugar, and salt who lives on a piece of their hut. And suddenly I remembered Atuzah, fictional character at my first posting (at another blog af mine in blogspot). Dunno. Maybe the asnwers why the turnmoil that comes with a beautiful mind.
The two women who walked in the middle af a dry grassland present spirit. Like the spirit women all around the word who want a smoky hut because there can be cooked therein, with the laughter of their children laughing at them. It’s like I realize that day has got to be thankfull this today. Well are not must be grateful that there are many things we can do for our families, for around us, for this universe. l’sn it…friend…?
