Fields lit with red sun brier
Songs of moil our attire
Evening comes we creep to bed
Til cock crows to earn our bread

Over at B&P’s Shardoma and Beyond I was introduced to the tanaga, a Filipino poem consisting of four lines with seven syllables each; the rhyme scheme is AABB. I found it interesting to write as it took longer to write than it does to read!

  1. I wasn’t familiar with the word “moil” and am fascinated by how it seems to mean the same thing as “toil”–so interesting. Love how you wrote this from the tanaga prompt but also used the photo for inspiration.
