IN FLIGHT (Poem 29)

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Beacon, beacon from the sky
Knock upon my door so bold!
Now that I am enthusiastically waiting
In repose.

Come forth! Do come now!
Red lights of the traffic
Of the benign firmament.

My soul has been
Longing for this flight
Longing for the blessed pilgrimage.

My mecca’s doors may now
Be gleefully expecting for me.

[Writ. 09 Sept. 1987, Univ. of the Philippines, Quezon City, M.Manila.]
