My 1st Tanaga
Modestly, she's apt to blush, Flowering ~anxiously~ lush. Her flow rushes over me; I'm drowning in her story.
My 2nd Tanaga
Stuffed myself into a box; Lost the keys to all the locks; Cut two holes out for my eyes So I could see through the lies.
The Tanaga is an indigenous type of Filipino poem, which consists of four lines (a quatrain), each with seven syllables, traditionally (but not always) following an AABB rhyme scheme.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
