IN FLIGHT (Poem 34)

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

O! Firefly!
The rains have arrived!
Wake up from your deep slumber!

Lend me your undying light!
Find me the celestial beacon
My Wings have been waiting for.
Bring to me the heavenly cue.

Light up the pathway of the sky!
I shall ascend soon.

Let me decipher your quizzical code:
I will just like you do
Upon having shared the Holy Beings’ harvest
Help to bring forth Light to peoples
Whose Paths may be so dark.

We are not the Light
We can be the Harbingers.

[Writ. 15 Sept. 1987, Univ. of the Philippines, Quezon City, M.Manila.]
