Ilocano haiku #205

Kumutukot

Ay, kumutukot.
Iliw, liday ken lammin.
Iti tulang ko.

Digs

Oh, it digs.
Longing, sadness and cold.
Into my bones.

Talna

Agtalna, puso
Baka maitublakka
Ket agsangitka

Calm down, heart
You might trip up
And cry

This tired mind
Frustrated heart

Lagip

Napaisemak.
Ragsak ti napalabas,
Innak nalagip.

Memory

I smiled.
The joys of yesterday,
I remembered.

Nga karirikna.

Poems. Two hundred
Emotions.

Panagbabawi

Panagbabawi:
Kas nakulkol nga papel,
Buong nga sarming.

Regrets

Regrets:
Like crumpled paper,
A broken mirror.

Rumubrubrob nga apoy

This raging fire
That you started

Ken

Apoy ken danum.
Agsipnget ken parbangon.
Wen, sika ken siak.

And

Fire and water.
Dusk and dawn.
Yes, you and me.

Umay

Agkaradapak.
Magnaak, agtarayak.
Basta umayak.

Get

I’ll crawl.
I’ll walk, I’ll run.
I’m getting there.
