Ilocano haiku #96

Ayan

Ayan mo manen,
Bulan ing-ingunguten?
Apay aglemmeng?

Where

Where are you again,
O moon so dear?
Why are you hiding?

Uray

Aguray, puso
Ti agdardarasudos
Nu matnag, mablo

Wait

Wait, my heart
What rushes reckless
When it falls, breaks

Sarak

Ay, nagsarakdan!
Bibig mo ken bibig ko
Nagdinnanondan!

Find

Alas, one found the other!
Your lips and my lips
They’ve arrived at each other!

Nu kada kumawilak
Pungan masabat

When I go for a cuddle
The pillow cuddles back

Ket nalpas manen
Lawas ti panagubra
Ne, itagayen!

And it’s done again
Another week of work
Let’s drink to that!

Ti bannog ken innana
Apagbiit lang

In between
Tiredness and rest
Is just a moment

Tatang

Pigsa ken bileg
Adigi ken sanggiran,
pagtuladan mi.

Strength and might
Our wall and pillar,
Our rolemodel.
