Duyog – #Gogyohka #TankaTuesday

artistic blossom bright clouds

My voice flows
Your gongs clamor
Cacophonous duyog
Yet perfect symbol
Of our yearning.

This is a first on the H.R.R. Gorman channel! Jade M. Wong, who is a super duper instagrammer (I’m not, I just looked at her page and was wowed), has a new prompt called “World of Words.” In this weekly prompt, a non-English word is chosen as a starting point for inspiration. This time, it was duyog, a Bisaya (from the Phillipines) word meaning “musical accompaniment.”

And lo and behold, Colleen Chesebro’s prompt this week was to use synonyms for harmony and love. How perfect does duyog fit for that? I couldn’t help but combine the prompts.

    I love this! Thank you for participating. I actually picked your poem as one of my favorites for last week and shared it on my Instagram story (I also tagged your IG profile, so I hope you got the notification!)
