18th Birthday

eighteenth birthday
she dances with strangers
my daughter's daughter
if I feel such a pain
how about her father]

she dances
to her own music
my free-spirited
not unlike her mother

chilly night
under its darkness
hides my loneliness


gabing malamig
sa iyong dilim nagtatago
aking kalungkutan

from my book,
Haiku and Tanka Harvest
