Malihatun Nikmah

Sedari tadi Syailendra berdiri termangu di penyanga rumah. Menyandarkan kepala dan badannya. Memandangi turunnya hujan di depan matanya. Kini mulai masuk musim penghujan. Musim dimana dirindukan para pelamun. Air hujan yang dingin datang tanpa diduga, menyandra semua penghuni di desa kecil, merasuk hingga ketulang. Syailendra berpikir do’a akan mengabulkan kesedihan ini.

Harapannya selalu berkecamuk dengan keadaan yang tidak diinginkan. Kecuali orang-orang yang selalu hidup dengan kasih sayang. Orang-orang di sini tak memiliki kendaraan yang bagus. Ini bukan pilihan warga desa yang sebagian besar areanya bertanah merah. Di sini, orang-orang hanya perlu menjadi petani yang baik.

Musim hujan menjadi berkah luar biasa bagi masyarakat desa di sini. Namun, jika disertai dengan angin kencang telah mengacaukan harapan dan keinginan orang-orang di sini, mengubah keberkahan berupa kepungan ketakutan. Ini jelas membuat keadaan desa dan mental orang di dalamnya kian memburuk.

pagi yang masih dibaluti mendung. Seakan tak mau kalah. Udara dingin telah memporak-porandakan kehangatan. Telah terjadi hujan semalaman. Angin masuk menyelinap memasuki rongga-rongga tubuh Syailendra seakan mengerti kalau dirinya tak ada yang memeluknya.

Di ujung desa, tempat peristirahan terakhir warga desa di sini. Di sudut area terdapat nisan tegak di atas tanah wakaf. Tidak ada nama di nisan itu. Hanya berupa nisan dimakan umur dengan dibaluti lumut. Syailendra berdiri di depannya. Cukup ramai pengunjung hari ini. Namun, kondisinya tetap saja hening. Mereka tunduk membacakan wahyu dari malaikat Jibril melalui nabi Muhammad. Mereka membaca dalam hati dengan penuh harap. Tidak ada yang berani berteriak. Kecuali anak kecil yang disambut desisan satu jari dimulut ibu, itu membuatnya tenang.

Dalam keheningan di kepala Syailendra, doanya melayang bersama desisan dan gemernyit suara gesekan bambu-bambu yang hadir di sepanjang pinggirang kanan area.

Udara dingin telah meredam setiap aroma kayu bakar yang mengepul di sepanjang deretan rumah. Sesekali tangan mereka lurus ke arah kompor tanah untuk meraba kehangatan. Langit mendung sedikit demi sedikit membuka cakrawala surya untuk memancar.

Barisan ibu rumah tangga mulai melentikkan tangan-tangan hebat mereka untuk mengiris bawang. Mengambil seutas gelanggang kangkung di pinggiran sawah. Batang kangkung dibelah menjadi dua bagian lalu memotong batang kangkung secara menyilang dengan ukuran setengah jari manis mereka.

Masih dalam musim hujan yang berat, pagi kemarin, diruang tengah keluarga kecil yang tak jauh dari jalan setapak menuju persawahan, Syailendra duduk melingkar di ruang tamu bersama tiga anggota keluarganya. Sesekali mereka saling menatap untuk memulai topik perbincangan.

“kayu hampir habis, minyak untuk menerangi rumah juga tinggal sedikit. Nyamuk-nyamuk kian merapatkan kepungan. Mereka ingin kita memberikan darah manis,” ujar laki-laki di sudut kursi. Itu Erlangga, adik Syailendra. Ia berfikir nyamuk menjadi penyebab kemalangan semua ini. “mereka datang menggandeng keluarga besarnya”, sambungnya.

Mendengar perkataan Erlangga, Syailendra tiba-tiba berdiri. “Er ikutlah denganku”.

Erlangga tiba-tiba bangkit mengikuti Syailendra. Dari kejauhan mata Syailendra melihat punggung ibu di perapian. Dua lelaki itu pergi menuju ruang dapur. Dengan cekatan Srikandi mengikuti dari belakang. Ibu tengah mempersiapkan masakan sup sebelum berangkat sekolah. Srikandi sangat menyukai masakan ibu. Perempuan dua belas tahun itu menyukai setiap potongan daging ayam yang bertengger di dalam mangkuk supnya. Usianya lebih muda empat tahun dari Syailendra.

Mengikuti rendahnya dapur, Syailendra berjalan agak condong di bangku panjang sebelah ibunya. Mata Srikandi tiba-tiba terpaku melihat sup buatan ibunya. Terdengar ujaran putrinya itu , “ayamnya mana ?”.

“Ayamnya masih tidur nak” sahut ibu.

Syailendra mengambil centong kuah dan mencelupkan pada mangkok sup untuk memastikan potongan ayam. Benar saja tidak ada daging ayam di dalamnya. “Tidak ada ibu, ayamnya tidak sedang tidur.” Sambung Syailendra.

“Hanya irisan wartel dan kentang yang menyelam,” ujar Erlangga.

 “Ayamnya masih pergi, bersabarlah, Anakku.”

“Yaaahh!” Kesal Srikandi.

“Daging ayam itu merupakan sumber protein yang baik kau tau Er?!” ujar Syailendra dengan nada agak nyaring namun tetap tenang.

“Kaldu dari lemaknya juga baik.” Lanjut Syailendra pada adik-adiknya.

“Daging ayam tinggi akan kandungan protein sehingga bisa membangun ototmu supaya jadi lebih kuat. Jadi kita lebih banyak mengangkut kayu bakar di hutan.” Syailendra melanjutkan.

Kail harapan mereka tak terpaut. Tergesa-gesa mereka mengakhiri riwayat sup itu. Terburu-buru mengambil bagian masing-masing. Tergesa-gesa menyantap hidangan di depan wajahnya. Mereka tampak bergegas, mempersiapkan buku dan alat tulis.

Malam ini dan malam-malam berikutnya, tetap dengan yang sama. Tidak ada yang berbeda. Malam ini di rumah akan ada sup dengan irisan lobak dan mentimun. Tak ada harum daging meyeringai.

Pagi berikutnya,  di atas lantai papan rumahnya Erlangga mencium harum sup yang berbeda. Harumnya syarat kental dengan bau kaldu daging putih. Erlangga memutar tubuhnya, memandang ke arah dapur. Dingin yang berat ini akan segera membangkitkan kehangatan. Seperti kehangatan yang sudah pernah mereka rasakan sebelum ayah pergi meninggalkan nama di batu nisan.

Mereka saling berdekatan menerima kematian ayah dengan kehangatan. Menganggap ayah masih tetap bersemayam dalam kehangatan keluarga.

Namun Syailendra masih tegak dalam diam. Saat Srikandi dan Erlangga menyantap sup buatan ibunya. Erlangga memanggil dan mengajaknya. Ibu tersenyum tawar pada putra sulungnya itu. Ibu menyuguhkan tiga mangkok sup di atas meja.

Tanpa  membalas senyuman ibu Syailendra duduk dan memakan sup buatan ibunya. Memang tidak banyak daging, tapi sudah cukup membuat harum daging menyeringai di rongga hidung.

Syailendra masih berpikir heran, dari mana ibu mendapatkan daging ? dari mana ibu mendapatkan uang untuk membeli ? apa mungkin ibu menangkap ayam hutan ? tapi mengapa dagingnya tak begitu banyak ?.

Namun dari keheranannya Syailendra tak berani menanyakan pada ibu. Ia ingin tau sendiri dari mana ibu dapatkan daging itu. Ketika hendak ingin pamit berangkat sekolah wajah ibu sesekali terlihat menahan perih.

Syailendra pulang lebih awal dari sebelumnya. Terdengar suara merintih kesakitan. Suara yang ia kenal. Suara itu bersumber dari arah dapur. Keherannan Syailendra terjawab, ia terjatuh ke lantai sambil tergurai air mata mana kala ia melihat ibu memotong daging pahanya dan merebusnya. Tak kuasa berdiri ia berjalan melata menempelkan perut ke lantai papan dan memeluk ibunya.

  11. When a bid for the grading and storm sewer work at a single-family home project in the City of Omaha, Nebraska came out higher than anticipated, the developer faced a significantly reduced ROI. In partnership with SEH, the developer was able to to consider an alternative – master engineering. Through master engineering, SEH honed the site layout, grading and storm sewer design, which resulted in significant savings for the developer. In fact, the grading changes reduced project cost by $225,000. The storm sewer changes reduced project cost by $275,000. Along with reduced costs, the project team was able to add more premium lots to the development which could then be sold at more than $10,000 per lot. We think our local Chamber of Commerce President, James Lippens, said it best when referring to property development in our community, “Cities rely on commercial and residential growth for their health and continued existence. Marrying these efforts to a community’s character is key to successful growth. We at the Chamber of Commerce want to encourage growth within Dexter that does two things: First, it should expand on the market and space opportunities for our existing and future businesses. Second, however, we want to encourage growth that elaborates on the small town American aesthetic of our downtown area.” https://openlyvoluntary.com/Lets-think-forum/profile/annetta96275555/ Condo Resources Sitemap 2 Sitemap 3 All information on Highrises.com is for informational purposes only and is deemed correct but should be independently verified.

The payment can sometimes extend over 18 to 24 months. In most cases, if you don’t have to put down this 20 percent upfront, it allows you to save up. There are some situations where you can use a line of credit to get further spread out on the payment deposits. 

  12. The number of Americans who are in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana has risen. More than 60% of people surveyed now support the idea. Most Americans don’t think marijuana is harmful. Yet despite the increasing acceptance, marijuana use does have some risks. Jon Gettman’s 2007 study “Lost Taxes and Other Costs of Marijuana Laws” found that the U.S. marijuana industry is a $113 billion annual business that costs taxpayers $31.1 billion in lost tax revenues. Gettman, who has a Ph.D. in public policy from George Mason University, suggests that $10.7 billion could be saved each year from the country’s $193 billion in annual criminal justice expenditures if marijuana arrests – 5.54 percent of all criminal apprehensions – were stopped. https://iviewtube.com/community/profile/renatesalkauska Your organic cannabis plants also need adequate amounts of macronutrients calcium and magnesium and the following micronutrients: zinc, iron, manganese, molybdenum, copper, cobalt, chlorine, silicon, and boron. The latter nutrients are needed in much lower quantities, but are still essential for healthy plant growth. The other macronutrients that are needed and can be added to soils or other media are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). Most commercial formulations of dry or liquid fertilizers will have three numbers on their packaging. These three numbers refer to the percentage by volume of N, P and K. Each of these individual essential nutrients performs a different –but vital– function to cannabis plants. Flowering cannabis plants need less nitrogen and more potassium to promote the growth of big, resinous flowers. During the first two weeks of flowering, most growers feed their flowering plants with a 5:7:10 fertiliser. From here on out, it’s common practice to keep dialling up the nutrients on all fronts, always keeping potassium concentrations higher than the rest. By mid-flowering, most growers will be using a 6:10:15 nutrient solution.

This allows you to quickly upload contacts and send thousands of SMS messages. By using this service, some information may be shared with YouTube. Step #3: Now you are ready to send text to email. The process is just like sending a normal email. Add the recipient’s address as countrycode , type your message and click Send. A: This actually has nothing to do with your own address book, but is instead a problem on the other person’s iPhone. iMessage can be used with a phone number or an email address, and iPhone users who have signed in with an Apple ID generally have both options available and can choose which one is used as their “From” address by going into Settings, Messages. https://islamicmisconceptions.com/community/profile/leandrawestover/ One of the 5 ways to fix iPhone 5s can’t send picture messages that is considered to be one of the most effective solutions is Reset Network Settings option. This will reset your cellular settings, saved Wi-Fi networks and saved passwords, Bluetooth settings, APN and VPN settings, etc. Follow these steps: Build stronger relationships by keeping track of all your customer details in one place By texting IPH or AND to 93557, you agree to receive a one-time text message from Wells Fargo with a link to download the Wells Fargo Mobile app. Availability may be affected by your mobile carrier’s coverage area. Your mobile carrier’s message and data rates may apply. Please refer to the Supported Browsers and Operating Systems page for mobile OS details. No instruction needed in many cases. But as one who taught Java nationally for a top Fortune 500 company and who used to use Droids, I myself didn’t know about iMessages for a long time after switching to iPhone. Who has time to memorize a long manual (if you can even get it)? Rather you generally learn the features you need, and then search for a solution once a problem arises. The whole text SMS iMessage is confusing as can be, especially if you turn on Airplane Mode and THEN reenable wifi. Try sending a text now internationally without paying Travel Pass charges. So, yes, Steve, I agree with those who say that you are rather obnoxious.
