Shelomith Noarbe

(April 21,1984 / San Jose, Sipalay, Negros Occidental, Philippines)

Handum


naga higda sa pinaka kilid sang katre
naga panumdom sang mga wala diri wala didto
ang akon nga mamang nagaluto sang panyaga
ang pinakanamit sa akon mga natilawan
naga huna huna ako
ano ayhan ang kabuhi sa tate
sa lugar kung diin ga ulan snow
perti
hambal nila magakabuhi ka daw
sa lugar sang gatas kag honey
daw ka namit pamatian
nadugangan pa gid ang gutom ko
si mamang naga tulok lang sa akon
kay daw kadalom gid sang paminsaron ko
wala sa kabalo
gadaramguhon nako nga maka pa tate
lapit na lang gid ko mag nurse
duwa na lang ka tuig
ano na ang dason
gatas kag honey ari nako
ang inyo manugsalom
baw ano ayhan no?
pero sa akon pagpanumdom sang malawig
natulugan ako
nalipatan ko ang gutom
nalipatan ko nga ara ko gali sa pinakakilid sang katre
nalipatan ko isa na lang ka giho
lupad nako
sakay sa eroplano
kuno
lupad na ang eroplano
nadagdag ko
sa katre nga ginahigdaan ko
nagkadlaw si mamang
pero gin buligan nya man ko dayon
ang damgo ko
ang handum ko
maglupad
nahimo man gid
instant
galing biskan sa airport ko mag landing
sa salog nga tig'a pa sa ulo ko
ako naglanding
gkadlaw ako sa natabo
pero ang handum ko
akon gid nga dayunon
makita mo gid na
lantawa lang
tani no?
pangamuyuan ta lang ni
salig lang sa Ginoo
salig lang
para sa handum!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
