Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago
I’ve been playing with
Guitars and keyboards
Whose soothing tunes linger
In my enthused Psyche
Their magical hymns render my weight
As light as feather.
So that I fly like unto airwaves
The numerous renditions unleash
The powerful anthems hidden
Such anthems expand me: I Am
The Balloon whose edges have
Sensed, felt, touched the ground
Even before my feet have landed
On its first blessed flight.
