IN FLIGHT (Poem 7)

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Yesterday I quipped:
I’ve been walking
On the face of the Earth.

I am sturdier now than ever.

Enough to shift gears
To fly! Fly high!

And assert the truth
That man’s being

Is not barren
Not barren!

That Being arises
Shining even beyond
Gold’s luster
Shining to

Advance! Advance
Man’s place

In the kosmic order.
Man shall be.

[Writ. 22Aug. 1987, Univ. of the Philippines, Quezon City, M.Manila.]
