Kaibigan

(Filipino friends)

 

Don’t know much about a mystery

Don’t know much etymology

Don’t know much about a language book

Don’t know much about Linguistics took

 

But I do know that you’re both dear

And the gift of words you brought us here

How much better the world is to me

 

How much better you make the world,

You see

 

(inspired by “What a Wonderful World,”

released by Sam Cooke in 1960

 

inspired by Rosema at rosemawrites,

Maria at Doodles and Scribbles

for giving us “Word-High July”—see below)

Tadhana

Tadhana

 

I tip the cups

Of the libation bearers

 

I take the coins

Meant for passage

With Charon

 

I trick Raven itself

Out of a feather

 

The dragon soars

But cannot find me

 

I hide behind

The rising sun

 

All the gods offended

 

Until I encounter

You

 

Who will

Not suffer fools

 

And will withhold

Amazing

Gems only for the

Wise

 

Who will not

Count me

 

Outcast

I weep

 

Wishing

Ananzi might

Forgive and

Wrap me

In

 

A silver thread

 

A place from

Which to

Repent

 

And relate anew

With divinity

My Gigil

My Gigil

 

Stay away

This isn’t funny

 

I meant it now

You stay away

 

Ha, ha

Are you enjoying this

I think you

 

Are gigil

A Philippine lothario’s

(Lothatia’s)

Apprentice

 

Mentor

To

Trickster personae

 

Leave off

Let go

This won’t get me

 

To love you

I

Will feel less

 

And once

You let go

I will hit you back

For squeezing

 

Pinching

Tickling my sides and

Under my chin

 

What creature

Told you that

Was where

 

This was how

To goad me best

 

Your gigil won’t take me

In or you

Very far

 

So set me down

 

I am a scaredy

A ‘fraidy

Well

You know

 

Pusa

Sometimes still

Muning

Yugto

Yugto

(word that carries)

 

Meanwhile

Once upon a time

In another part of

The realm

 

Story transition to

Keep it whole

 

In a castle far away

Half-way up the

Wizard’s tower

 

Gazing out upon

A quiet land

 

Silent for now

 

I see my story

Turning pages with

A hope that you

Will follow

 

Through connective

Words like tissues

Binding joints

And muscles

 

Taking us from

Each one of them

To each

 

Into exotic action

And a parable

 

Something for life

When the reading’s

Done

Pahimakas

Pahimakas

 

We’re near the end

Though not there, so

This word doesn’t

Have to bring a tear

Today

 

Though tears are

Healthy, maybe we

Can save ours for a

Little while and

Say instead

 

Au revoir (when it’s

Time), A bientot

 

Ciao, bella (bello)

 

Hasta luego, hasta

Pronto

 

See you again (and)

See you soon

 

Good-bye for now

 

We’ll meet again,

Don’t know where,

Don’t know when”

 

In the sky or on the

Earth or over water

 

Pahimakas, friends

Pakimakas, family

 

Where it matters

Always there

Pre-Lapsarian

Pre-Lapsarian

 

As some thinkers say,

Before the fall, when

Woman and man had

Concourse without

Guile or agenda save

For pleasure in animal-

Naming and simplicity

In delight, listening-

Awaiting sounds of

Perfect feet on Eden’s

Brilliant plain; and if

They’d proved a nation,

We would have had

Ourselves a world,

Replete, by all mortal-

Divine promises to own

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

Indak

Indak

 

Dance with me,

I want to be your partner

 

What shall it be?

What is danced

Under a Filipino

Moon,

 

Call it “Buwan” or

“Bulan”?

 

Something

Spanish or more

Ancient?  Or

Worked out

Today?

 

As long as we

Might touch

 

Dancing now,

Because as the

Orleans song

Is sung,

 

And love is all around

 

Maybe spouse-sun

Will dance, too,

Who might be

“Arawa”

 

In lore, married

With the moon

 

All nature dances

To (what is called

In many places)

The

 

Harmony of spheres

 

Earth turns

Sun smiles

 

Gravity collides

With magnetic

Fields

 

In joy of being a

Universe

 

Day ends, merges

With jazzy dusk

 

Ready to step

And slide under

The rhythm of

Choice selection

From a heavenly

Combo:

 

Night is falling,

 

And I am calling you:

 

Dance with me

 

Touch my hand

And, with me,

Glide

Gunita

Gunita

 

Remembrance

Until it might

Slip away,

 

Tripped not on

Forgetfulness

But rather

On the path to

Now

 

Then matters

Again,

 

A crystal

Record;

 

But while you

And I are here

 

Memory is

Present for the

Present

 

Even if we

Stumble over

Nostalgia

In our steps to

The sweetness of

This time
