THE KUBO AND THE SEA


The bahay kubo at one side And the sea at the other side Put together is one against one A disastrous..a sanity Well, it depends to someone But, inspiration it can be The connections and the maneuverings Could be definitive The kubo signifies stability, So tranquil, so humane While the sea is a challenge The sea sometime Gets wild, unrestrained But can subside Ride on and enjoin Have faith and have fate intertwine.
Meanings: Bahay kubo is a Filipino term which means a small hut made up of native materials.

Such a contrast you put in here, Dalila, and I can't help but worry about that bahay kubo, but the way you said it is somehow like an anchor-- I like how you leave it up to faith and fate--also like a reminder for me to hold on to that faith. Lovely poem that made me smile-- soupmail in a bit!

I['m glad you describe kubo at the bottom I was thinking maybe it was a small boat. This was a lovely poem!
