Nagje-jaywalk na suso
Nakita ko sa Quiapo
Kay bilis nyang tumakbo
Naunahan pa ako

Thanks to Clair for getting tanaga into my head (I have Last Challenge
Syndrome, like LSS) and my mom for suggesting Quiapo instead of Recto. =)

Bituin

bituin daw kanyang mata.
rosas daw kanyang labi.
mukha raw s’yang diwata.
ay! baliw yung nagsabi!

ABAB rhyming this time.

Pusa sa Kalye

hindi ko malimutan
pusang nasagasaan
tatlong kuting sa daan
wala nang mapuntahan

Tanaga: Siopao

My first tanaga. Please help me fix my Tagalog; I might’ve gotten some
of the nuances wrong. The poem below is fairly sick. I hope this never
happens to any cat!

Siopao

pusang aking inangkin
hinagkan nang malambing,
siniopao at kinain?!
iba sana hinain!

Buhayin ang Tanaga!
