Just Karma 14

too frank

topsy turvy day had us
hunting for the Wright home here –
as it was a private place
footfalls had to be retraced

The signage was quite ‘frank’ “private residence”.

The Tanaga is a Filipino poem.
It consists of four lines with seven syllables each; the rhyme scheme is AABB.
Traditional tanagas don’t have titles and are composed in the Tagalog language.
Most have been handed down through oral history and contain proverbs and moral lessons.
(Similar to the tanaga is the ambahan, which has an indefinite length.)

Modern Tanaga
The tanaga has been in danger of becoming a dying art form. The Cultural
Center of the Philippines and the National Commission of the Arts have been
trying to revive it. Several groups have been promoting the form in English.
The form is beginning to change slightly – not only are tanagas appearing in
more frequently in English, they are picking up titles and varying their rhyme
forms (for example, AABB, ABBB, ABAB, ABBA, AAAB, BAAA, ABCD, etc).

    • There are just so many ‘Yes this is an historic place but you can’t enter – but you can read about it on this sign’ one can deal with. And there were quite a bit of those in Frankfort, KY.
