Word-High July!

Amihan

Amihan

(in Philippine, northeast wind)

 

Where I live,

When the weather

Comes from the east,

An unusual day

Arrives with it

 

Different time is allowed,

No value yet, not

Good or bad

 

Will the air be dense

With drenched nuclei,

Will the sky be sliced:

 

Will weighted water

Pummel us from above

 

Then, once cleansed—no,

Purged—and dried

 

Will we breathe

An ameliorating atmosphere

As a gift from no one

We know how to thank

 

Valued thus rendered

In innocence

 

With feet wet

From Eden’s tears,

We tread home

To do our best

To make

A heaven here

Love Song

Love Song

inspired by kundiman

 

If only I

And with a sigh

Could say I love you

 

If only you

My one and true

Could say I love you, by

 

And by, this world will fall

And when it does,

I’ll say because

We could not call

 

Our own

If only I’d

Been there and tried

To love you only

 

And if you tried

The rules abide

And could you run

And hide?

 

If only we

Had sight to see

That we are left to be

Habilin

Habilin

 

A golden ring

A sword by a lady

Genie in the lamp

 

Silver kept by first

People before

John Reed could

Claim the hero’s

Steed

 

Who keeps the

Holy Grail?  Who

Killed Cock Robin

 

And, more soberly,

Black Dahlia?

 

Where is Jimmy

Hoffa?  Where

Did D. B. Cooper

Fall?   What

Happened to the

Mary Celeste

And Flight 19?

 

And where is the

Key to my hidden

Heart?

 

I don’t know

Much about holy

Relics, enigmatic

Personages,

Famous mysteries;

 

About secrets,

Well, I’ve kept a

Few—I’d rather

Not have had to

 

To children,

Secrets make

Innocent mischief;

 

Later, for safety

Sake, they might

Be exigent even

Into years

 

But, finally,

When the glass

Is no longer

Darkly, when we

Shall see with

Clarity

 

And all shall be

Known face to

Face,

 

On that day I

Shall be

Relieved, for

Heavy chore

Has been

Reliving secrets

 

 

(First Corinthians 13:12)

Tenth Muse

Tenth Muse

 

Nine muses

For the Greeks,

A tenth muse

For Filipinos

And for me

Grace and gift

 

I aspire toward

Invocation

 

If paraluman

Visit and illumine

 

Then I shall, in

Turn, be filled

With art from

 

Philippine spirit

 

I could not

Ask for more

Than far-off

Soul-wind

Breathe on me

Let me serve you

In this way

Balintawtaw

 

Look me in the eye

 

Balintawtaw

How might

It undulate

 

Do you wave in

Love or fright

 

Attributes that

Can be shared, you

Know:

 

Each evokes

A shaking of

Soul-senses

 

Overcome one

To have the

Other—you decide

 

Then with one

Intent, look the

Other in the eye

 

In balintawtaw

Humaling

Humaling

(n) extreme fondness

 

What might I say to this

Endearment

 

Should it be felt toward

Me

 

I would be without peer

Except by those

Extremely loved

 

Not only loved by God

But by creation’s

Offering

 

Those who can choose

To love—and have

Chosen me

 

Perfect love is cast,

And I will have mortal

Love while in this

Life

 

May this expand

‘Til those who love

 

Encompass everything

Without condition:

 

A globe of endearment

Now

 

And heaven here
