CfBS: On the Abbreviated and Punctuated Balikbayan Journey of a Bamboo Scion (13.12.07)

edge, west-north Turtle Island 
ears opened to songs of Killer Whale
heart's pulse in sync with flap of Raven       
eyes opened to dance of Salmon

so i traced, tracked- back
towards song of Buwaya
towards flap of Pawikan
towards dance of Maya

edge, west-south shell
mga anito, stars guiding
mga Maykapal, smiling
rejoicing, once mourning

Sky, Kaptan
Sea, Maguayan
slivers carried, silvers shining
shattered, Lisuga, made one
