sa pagsuyo ng buwan
puso'y nakikiramdam,
ngayo'y namamaalam
sa noon pa lumisan
Gamaliel May 22
karagatang mapanglaw
ang sati'y naglalayo
sa malamig na tanglaw
ang ulilang pagsuyo

ng maglaho ang buwan
at pumatak ang ulan
umangat dahan-dahan
pait ng 'yong paglisan

sa pusod ng 'yong bundok
puso'y naninirahan
sa malambot **** umbok
hiwaga'y natagpuan

In vessels made from my love
Sailors of my warmth arrive
A land of beauty and worth
This land shall be named ‘Your Heart’
I originally wrote this for my girlfriend, and I was really proud of it.

Uneven breathing rhythm
Serene becomes luxurious
One's mind now went unconscious
Fallen into a mayhem
This was for a literature class assessment. This type of poetry is called "Tanaga".

Pagtibok, pagdama,
Hinahanap-hanap ka,
At sa bawat paghinga,
Sambit ko, "mahal kita".

minsan kong napagtanto:
"habambuhay bang gan'to?"
hanggang sa sabi nila,
"wala, ganyan talaga."


sometime i've realized:
"would it be this way for life?"
until they told me,
"it is what it is."

From Wikipedia: The Tanaga is a type of Filipino poem, consisting of four lines with seven syllables each with the same rhyme at the end of each line --- that is to say a 7-7-7-7 Syllabic verse, with an AABB rhyme scheme.

Thought I'd try to write one, just in time for Buwan ng Wika (National Language Month) in August. Challenging, to say the least. :---)
