Gerhana Merah Putih

17 Agustus 2008 mendatang kita akan mendapatkan sebuah peristiwa menarik yaitu gerhana bulan sebagian.

Malam hari kemerdekaan tersebut akan terasa berbeda dari tahun sebelunya karena tahun ini cahaya petasan tidak dilatari dengan cahaya bulan. Aku sendiri tak ingin melewatkan momen ini.

Sinar kemerdekaan

Diatas bulan separuh

Cita-cita pahlawan

Tulus dan menyeluruh

Kerlip angan menembus awan

Awan hitam membendung rasa

Ingin hati bumi pertiwi menawan

Terlihat kawan penuh jaya
