Tanaga Ukol Sa Tanaga

I’d like to post here some rough draft for a change.

I thought of writing a Tanaga poem about a Tanaga poem while aboard a jeep going to some remote town and this is what I got:

Kaisipa’y piniit
Sa tulang maliit
Salitang hati’y pito
magkatunog ang dulo

6:34 AM 7/26/2006

I texted the above to myself because it was hard to write aboard the sweeping and swerving jeep.

Recently, I just completely rewrote it:

Pitong hati – ‘sang linya
Kaisipa’y piniit
Linya’y apat – ‘sang tula
Kaisipa’y binaggit

11:23 PM 8/5/2006

I think both are very wrong. The first one is AABC while the second one is ABCB.

Somehow, I’m not satisfied without the traditional AAAA rhyme. Hmmm… Where’s that pencil?

    bri, you’ve been awfully quiet. asan ka na? we really should have that coffee soon. i hope all is well with you.

  2. Actually I had been feeling overworked and down and it took another toll on my writing. Lately, I directed my time to doing exercises 1. because my health was taking a down turn, and 2. I needed to cheer up.

    Please see the following:

    Exercise and the “Runner’s High”: can it really make you happy?

    Anyway, the other day, I was daydreaming on how it was like to just write (or draw or paint) for one to five years. I would really welcome a total change of career!

    I guess Leonardo da Vinci had it better because he had rich and powerful sponsors.

    And then again, in a daydream, I saw myself approaching the likes of Bill Gates for sponsorship. I tell Bill, “Bill, I can write damn good software but I’m seeking sponsorship for writing poems.”

    Then, I poped back to reality: I realized that I have to sponsor my own writing activities… for now.
