POEM

 

 

 

 

by Rem Tanauan

In the hundreds of
twisting, stretching
legs and arms,

this is the only pose
I remember
among all:

To lie down,
flat out
on the ground.

Open palms
to the sky, fully
face to face,

awareness breathes
akin to
sleeping

To utterly surrender
in repose
is to become a corpse

so I can remember
once again
my resurrection.

 

The original, in Pilipino:

Sa daang-daang
pagpilipit, pag-unat
ng binti at braso,

ito lang sa lahat
ang natatandaan kong
posisyon:

Ang humilata,
lapat na lapat
sa lupa.

Bukas-palad
sa langit, buong-buong
nakaharap

humihinga ang ulirat
na mistulang
natutulog

Ang tuluyang sumuko
sa pahinga
ay pagsasabangkay

para maalala
ang muli kong
pagkabuhay.
