Haiku: Earth’s Lungs


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sweet breeze in cold hue
How can leaves dance in the sky
When night’s without you

***

Rushing with the wind
Past the river gushing hope
Love found but quickly lost

***

Eyes met in twilight
Like nothing’s impossible
Til the sun lost sight

***

Even birds find home
For breathing in-breathing out
Song in thunderstorm

***

Panaginip ba
Kung ika’y masilayan
Ngiti sa mata

***

Hangi’y pawiin
Kulimlim ng haraya
Langit na ilap

***

Kilalang dahong
Kumakaway sa ngitngit
Sa puso’y lambong

***

Pagsuyong wagas
Sa palad ng balaraw
Luntiang sayaw
