    THERE ARE ISLANDS IN THE SHAPES OF NATIONS

    There are islands in the shape of nations in our blood

    I feel my fingertips crinkling and toe pads wrinkling
    waters rising, and coastlines eroding.

    The moon doesn't call the tides like it used to
    The rain doesn’t fall to the earth like it used to.

    It feels like we are boats with no moorings
    sailors with no stars

    We need to go farther
    from shore to find
    fish these days.

    Typhoons bend rooftops
    like bamboo

    These roots
    Hold strong
    .

    ~Kathryn Gwun-Yeen Lennon

    [Tagalog Translation]

    MAY MGA ISLA NA SA HUGIS NG MGA BAYAN

    May mga isla na sa hugis ng mga bayan ng ating mga dugo.

    Kumukulokulobot ang daliri ng aking mga kamay at paa
    sa pagtaas ng tubig baha, sa susul na gumuguho.

    Hindi ganyan ang dating tawag ng buwan sa mga agos.
    Hindi ganyan ang buhos ng ulan sa daigdig.

    Para bang mga bangka tayong walang daungan
    ng mandaragat na pawang nangungulila sa mga tala.

    Kinakailangan pa tayong magpakalayo
    mula sa dalampasigan upang makahanap
    ng mga isda sa mga panahon ngayon.

    Ang mga bubugan lata at yumuyuko
    tulad ng mga kawayan
    ang mga ugat
    kumakapit.

    ~ Dennis D. Gupa, Antipolo, Rizal 2014
