Hello World, this page showcases my published haiku. I’m not going to brag here and proclaim to be a haiku master, but what I will proclaim is that I surely believe that haiku should be enjoyed by all. And, of course I am so certain the only way to be remembered as a Haijin is to leave behind some legacy, no matter how it is written, whether traditional or modern. Well, consider this as mine. I hope you find my haiku interesting, because for me «Haiku is not just a once flash of lightning». My language here is haiku, so enjoy!

damselfly…
beneath the leaf,
a thin moon

tutubing karayom…
sa ilalim ng dahon,
manipis na buwan

nowhere
to go— the old guitar,
and rain song

walang
mapuntahan— ang lumang gitara,
at awit ng ulan

dizzying fall…
from such memory,
the skier’s breath

nakakahilong bagsak…
mula sa gayong alaala,
ang hininga ng skier

first rays
of the sun, dew on
the grass

unang sinag
ng araw, hamog
sa damo

fireflies
… the light bearers
stop so soon!

mga alitaptap
… ang mga may dala ng liwanag
tumigil agad-agad!

I still smell burnt blooms

sweet roses can do nothing
