Literature is a reflection of life, adventure, emotions, and experiences. One of these is poetry that has always been used in conveying the realities of life. This study examines the different emotions and experiences reflected in literary works written after the devastation of super typhoon Yolanda (International name, Haiyan). This is a qualitative research with a content analysis design aimed to elicit the different emotions and experiences of the victims that can be seen in the poems. A thematic analysis was used to organize and interpret the data. The poems were taken from the book, Lunop: Haiyan Voices and Images published by the Samar-Leyte Heritage Society, Inc. Ten (10) poems were selected and analyzed in response to the research objectives. Based on the analysis done, the phrases in the poems used several figurative speeches and portray various persona such as a sympathetic person who cares about the welfare of the victims, a narrators and some are observers. The poems also contain different emotions representing the personas. Ultimately, the researcher identifies the experiences of the victims reflected in the literary pieces. It was concluded that poems contain intense emotions and experiences of suffering and recovery. With these, the researcher highly recommends to conduct further studies focusing on the association of the author’s life with his works in order to better see the authenticity of the experiences and feelings of the poems written after the disaster.
