Note: posting this evening since I may not have service
tomorrow. Using Hubby’s cell phone’s hot spot.

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).

best made plans… even with some luck 12.30

best made plans… even with some luck                       12.30

starting out the day
with a good plan until we
discover issues…

we found a snafu with how
we were going to get home

attempting a fix
lost some bonus airline points
we’ll live – and move on

filling the last day
to the man made beach; I found
*two live conch, a penny

and a snorkel tube and mask
so I got to see some fish

yellow and blue stripes
and some that looked invisible
I floated with them

then we went to play nine holes
at a local ‘Key’ golf course

checking our return
one more time, we get a rep
who earns accolades

so tomorrow it is back
to our winter wonderland…

* I tossed them back into the ocean –
so they could continue to grow old.

The great rep fixed everything 🙂

See you on the flip side.

10.23 a haibun Rail Rider

http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com/2014/10/carpe-diem-588-vladivostok-january-2014.html

a haibun: Rail Rider

I used to ride two different trains everyday
first from one state to another
and then to my destination

there is a different feeling being in an underground city
protected from the weather
everything there at your fingertips

well maybe…there are also the strangers
the ones that stay at stationary positions, who work there
and the seemingly uncountable flocks of people

there is the express and the local
the symphony of the inner workings of a clock
the schedules to be kept and the waiting

sometimes you get a seat and sometimes you stand
sometimes you grip a pole or a hanging hand rail
sometimes you can walk from car to car to car

I have a token somewhere that used to be able to
grant me access into that underground city
where one just was mostly just another traveler

I haven’t had to commute in years
though I have taken different trains upon occasion
there is a dream like quality to riding the rails

simple successes
arriving safely; to, from
places on a map

Rebuilding Hope

Rebuilding Hope

There is a local group that goes every summer to, McRoberts Kentucky
on their own dime and with the help of donations to help rebuild this small town.
On top of all of the historical woes weather took and laid most of the town flat.
One family at a time is a start…
