Pinoy Haiku

(Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry. Traditionally it has 17 syllables in 3 phrases, 5, 7, 5, respectively. I hope you enjoy the following, or better yet maybe try writing some on your own.)

Kubo

Ang pulitiko,

May mansyon. Simpleng tao?

Sa ba-haiku-bo.

*******

Syota

Seksing syota ko,

Sinimot at tinangay,

Pati ba-haiku.

*******

Gayuma

Tsurang kabayo,

Nilasing ako. Ngayo’y

Lab ng bu-haiku.

*******

Trono

Magarang trono,

Naupo ako. Surot!

Pesteng bu-haitu.

*******

Trapik

Grabeng trapik ‘to

Late na naman sa klase,

Kick-out! Hainaku!
