So I’m currently crafting a series of poems based on bodies of water (sea, lake, river, etc…) which entails a mix of light erotica and meditation (and a wee bit of playfulness). The original language used for the project is Bikol. This is to reunite a piece of me with my roots, and this is to help me re-awaken some forgotten limbs of my own language.
I’ve just posted the picture below on my Facebook account. Here’s the translation:
I wish to drown
in your sea —
the last breath
from my lungs
