Getting Chances

An attempt to Haiku in Tagalog (Philippine national language)

Translated in English Haiku


Pagkakataon

Sunggaban mo kaagad

Swerte o malas


If there are chances

Make sure to grab right away

Luck you have or ain't

April 28th – Getting Chances


The event was a square dance

A ho-down

A shin-dig

I dressed all in denim

A felt hat

A blond wig

It promised to be country

A beer keg

A roast pig

A chance to hook-up?

Eye contact

Smile big

Then there he was

Pulled up

In a rig

Getting Chance’s attention

His zag

To my zig

A crazy fast song

Hand out

Spin a jig

Laughter to disaster

Spun fast

Lost the wig

Oh, well – he’s is smitten

Finish dance

In big rig!


(ha, ha, ha)

DAY 28- GETTING CHANCES


Up at 8

Out at 9

Pounding pavement

All day long


Try to smile

Chin up high

Not lose hope

Push through doubt


Find a job

Any will do

Ask close friends

Pride can’t show


Pray for chances

Or just one

Stars will shine

Faith lives on

Getting Chances


Frequenting dances,

Wished I was

Getting chances

Instead of sideways glances.

Wanting my love life off pause.

Frequenting dances

Looking for romances,

A worthy cause.

Getting chances

For rejected advances.

Might take the loss.

Frequenting dances

Did little to enhance this,

my quest to rid the blahs.

Getting chances

Makes my opportunities more expansive

Needing no applause,

Frequenting dances;

Getting chances
