Larawan

torn woman

Lumang larawan sa sahig ay nahulog
Nang ang mga gamit ay aking inayos
Dali-dali ito na aking pinulot
Pinagpag ang kumapit na alikabok.

Larawan mo ito… muling pinagmasdan
Kinuhanan ka sa isang kabukiran
May mga puno sa banda mong kanan
Ginintuang palay ang nasa likuran

May mga bulaklak sa iyong paanan,
Isang rosas nga’y muntik mong matapakan.
Sa kaliwa mo aking nabanaagan,
Tutubi’t paro-paro’y nagliliparan.

Dapit-hapon noon nang ika’y kinunan
Sa langit ay may kaunting kaaulapan
Palubog na araw sana ay napagmasdan
Kung ang mukha mo ay hindi nakaharang.

Larawan mo ay hindi na iniligpit
Sa taguan kasi baka makagipit
Marahan ko itong pinagpunit-punit
Isinama sa mga itinapong gamit.

About HARDPEN

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
