Punso Sa Likod-bahay

nuno“Nagmamadali ka yata pareng Teban?”
Ang tanong ni Pedro sa kanyang kaybigan.
“Oo pare, albularyo’y pupuntahan,
Nagkaproblema inaanak mong si Juan.”

“Lumaki’t namaga ang paa ni bunso
Nang sa likuran namin sila’y naglaro
Paano ba naman sinipa ang punso
Kaya hayon nagalit yata ang nuno.”

“Pati nga iyong kaybigan n’yang kalaro
Aba eh dinuraan daw iyong punso
Kaya’t sa kanya ma’y nagalit ang nuno
Hayun ang pobre… namamaga ang nguso.”

“O… pareng Pedro saan ang tungo mo n’yan?
Biglaan mo yata akong nilayasan!”
“Pare… likod-bahay ninyo’y pupuntahan –
Iyong punso doo’y aking iihian.”

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!
