Into the Mist

rain
drip drip
poured slow gently

on the windowsill

cat
rolled flat
on the floor

cap
blue jacket
and a cane

old man lost

~  “Hay (Na) ku
Hay nako means oh my gosh or oh my mother in local Filipino dialect.
It was a latest poetry form of 21st century created by my fellow Filipino Ellen Tabios.
It’s been widely embrace by poetic world and had gained rapid popularity.
This form restrict the poet to express his thoughts in long free flowing verse but It chiseled your poem into a small refine one. It was an upgrade of a Japanese haiku on my self opinion. Ellen created it genuinely.
I love it.
Sometimes, as a poet, you have to express your piece with discipline.
