Rocking Chair by Geejay Arriola

. . . without my knowledge, I have had,
in my possession, two brooches which were crafted in a form that is identical to the shape of a lingling-o, the Babaylan symbol of:  the uterus; a woman’s power and
the Baybayin letter for ba which is the first syllable in the Filipino word babae, meaning, woman.
