Ilocano haiku #183

Panagal-alia

Ket nagal-alia,
Natayen nga ayatmo.
Ay, simgarak pay!

Haunting

And it haunts,
Your long dead love.
Oh, I shivered!

Giddan

Panagtinnag, bulbulong
Matnag met riknak

Together with
The falling of leaves
My feelings fall

Arem

Haan nga daniw,
Wenno maysa a kanta.
In-innaremta.

Lust

Not a poem,
Nor a song.
Our lust for each other.

Iggem

Angin, nagsala.
Ti lam-ek, immarakup.
Imak, iggemam.

Hold

The wind, it danced.
The cold, it hugged tight.
My hand, hold it.

Tudo

Kumaribuso
Saan nga makatalna
Tudo’t agsapa

Rain

They are chaotic.
They can’t settle down.
The early morning rain.
