this post's title is in filipino, and essentially translates to, "an example of haiku."
i've been thinking about the fact that i don't yet have even a single haiku on this blog, written in my local tongue. that's partly due to the fact that i'm actually somewhat more comfortable speaking in english than in filipino, as english was the first language i learned.
but a philippine haiku is rather overdue, so i'll take a stab at it here.
ulan sa labas
sa loob, ako'y tuyo
tumanda na nga
an english version:
pouring rain outside
while within, i remain dry
i've grown old indeed
thank you for visiting this haiku poem blog. :)
