Labuyo

Narito na nga ba ang delubyo?
Si Labuyo?

Kumakalampag na hangin 
sa labas
tubig na binubuhos 
na tila galing sa timba
mula sa kalangitan

nagngingitngit na mga sanga

lahat nang ito ay nakaamba

maaari kaya pagdating nya
ay ako ay hugasan, banlawan?

Sing anghang kaya nya
ang ngalan nya?

Di ko pa wari,
di ko pa wari.




*sorry 2nd attempt to type this, lost the 1st 
one, but couldn't sleep and this poem in 
Filipino came to mind.

'Labuyo' is the name of the typhoon hitting 
my country now.
I hope it is not too destructive. Also the 
name of a type of chili pepper here.

    Great write, Nikko! What a brave heart to write this in Tagalog! Its always nice to read a Filipino poem written in our own language. Iba talaga ang Pinoy at ang mga salitang tagos sa isip at puso. Napakahusay! Dugong pinoy. Tunay na Pilipino! Mabuhay ang mga Pilipinong manunulat! More power, Nikko! Love,love,love! :-) - Den

    Sad to say, it was destructive (not in my area though) :(-- many properties and agri products damaged-- some affected places are even inaccessible at this moment. Missing you bac, Missyk. Mwahugs.

    Thank you, dear Mandy. I'm in a safe place. It's the other people, who aren't, that I worry about.
