Dahon sa Gabi

by Pangga Gen

Ni Ma. Carmie Flor Ortego

Dahon sa Gabi

Nahidlaw ang tanan sa mga hugot nga kalipay ug puwang kangaya sa gugma.
-Jane Kenyon

Apan unsa man ang dahon sa gabi
nga kanunay mutugot
nga mudalin-as ang lusok sa uwan
tungod nga dili kini makuptan?

Taro Leaf

Everyone longs for love’s tense joys and red delights.
-Jane Kenyon, Thinking of Madame Bovary

But what of the taro leaf
That must always let
The raindrop slide
Because it cannot be held?
