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

Halakhak

Halakhak

 

Onomatopoeia

In Filipino

 

If I can manage

To pronounce

 

Quickly and many

Times

 

Then I think I

Might accomplish

 

Halakhak

 

Boisterous and

Outgoing laughter

Rhythmic in

Exhalation

 

Say it with me

Laugh with me

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

 

 

“We’ll Meet Again” by Ross Parker, Hughie Charles

first released in 1939

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

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

My Kaulayaw

My Kaulayaw

(for Rosema)

 

Sister

Brother

Friend

 

Sister to my wounds

And brother to

My zeal,

 

Friend to our needs

In the world

 

This should go

Two ways at least

 

I pray it does

 

Sister- brother-friend

Allow me to live

 

Let me serve you

In this way
