Prayer to Poseidon by Tea Solon

Prayer to Poseidon

by Tea Solon
site: Butung is Layp

the nautical miles
between your lips
and my lips disturb
the vast blue ocean

one minute is like
a thousand odysseys
of cold arms yearning

i faithfully await your
return here in the quiet
murmur of clear waters
while you defy the natural
movement of constellations

TEA SOLON enjoys gulping butung any given day. In her capacity as professor, researcher, and administrator, she had served the academe for nearly two decades. A boring mom and annoying mamarazzi, her bragging rights include basil grower, cancer warrior, and Kabisdakcontributor. Tea owns Butung is Layp (Coconut is Life) where she posts her Cebuano and English writings, and translations.
