Tanaga | Tagalog |Poem

Sa aking pag-iisa,
Ako ay umaasa,
Na ika’y makapiling,
Bisig mo’y tanging hiling.
Samyo ng iyong halik
Sana ito’y ibalik
Alaala mo mahal
Ang lakas ko sa twina.
Minsan ko nang hiniling
Sa langit na ibalik
Ating pagmamahalan
at ako’y ‘yong balikan.

A tanaga is a short poetic form that’s the Filipino equivalent of the Japanese haiku. It is an untitled poem of four lines with each line equally having seven to nine syllables.

    Pinagpalang araw din po sa inyo. Maraming Salamat po at inyong naiibigan ang aking mga katha. Makakaasa po kayong ipagpapatuloy ko pa ang aking nasimulan. Minsan na rin po akong tumigil sa kadahilanang ako’y nagugulimihanan kung may magbabasa ba o wala. Sa muli salamat po ..kahit papaano ako’y natutuwa…
