NEGROS ORGANIC ISLAND & MASCARA FESTIVAL

 

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

 

Maybe we all ought to treasure the noble event

Of Negros Island declared an entire organic land

From Oriental to Occidental sides ‘tis the same

Narrative of organic life shaping to full bloom

 

Twas in 2005 on occasion of the organic launching

Timed with the Mascara Festival of Bacolod fame

As technocrat of food security I was invited

To grace the two-day convention of NGOs

And market players and government players

Challenged to inspire did I speak first of all

On Day One of the noble occasion to fore

Consulting then for Kaisampalad organization

Thankful to Almighty Creator I spread Light via speech

 

Goin’ out by night of that same Day One

Mascara muse filled the festive air of city cool

Muses hidden in masks paraded on the stage

Filled me and crowd ecstatic for grand ensemble

 

Goin’ home the day after the memory thus built

Organics and mascara fests are partnered to swoon

Takin’ home photos and pieces of gorgeous masks

To make my day they to remind me as organic baton

NEWSPAPER CLIMES

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Conquering the public mind isn’t easy a goal
More so by landing in news headlines a-gallery

Such a chance did finally come upon my being
In 2004 upon endorsing a presidential candidate
As spokesman of a multisectoral coalition twas
In month of January it did come to commence all

How awesome that all the major newspapers came
Reinforced likewise by tabloids of worthy fame
From coalition launching to press cons and all
There was I and mass leaders in news fronts
Headlined in no less than couples of events
As I heralded advocacies that were truly treasures
That social services be for grassroots & mid-class

Twas eventually my short-cut to a palace stint
So was it time to meet boxing hero Manny Pacquiao
Twas too a meeting with cinema star la Aunor
And the young daughter of the martyred Flor Contemplacion

Short it was in 2004 to make of wondrous clime
Yet meaningful a stint for my own future roles
Beyond 2012 awaits my co-founding of larger commonwealth
Colored preliminary by the past newspaper climes

HONG KONG KOWLOON

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

A civil society was I then to advocate
Love and concern for overseas Filipinos
As Treasurer of Kanlungan Center Foundation
& Kakammpi president for overseas’ dependents

Came December 1990 we flew to Hong Kong
From across the globe we leaders converged
Stayed in Maryknoll sisters’ compound to camp
There to workshop too and build camaraderie

We then decided to architect Migrante International
Finally had it graduate from a Committee for nigh years
Just in time when we were lobbying for sanguine law
To care for overseas Pinoys across the globe

We did pay visits to bars & toured places
Victoria peak and cable car I recalled
With company of Pinay domestic helpers too
We toured the nights for songs & cocktails a’satiate

In one bar did I belt out songs to make for free beers
With gusto I sang La Bamba of Mexican folk fame
Accompanying myself with electric guitar to feel
As electrified eyes of tourists watched with awe

To the wonderful city built by British taipan
I bid not farewell as it’s o’so near to fly
My appreciation for glorious city planning will stay
This Asian city is one we islanders can be proud of

[Philippines, 03 February 2011]

HUNDRED ISLANDS

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Sometime in ’93 did I and some university students
Motored to Pangasinan to visit idyllic Mangayao
To workshop biodynamic farming and homeopathy
Care of Bro Edgard Guevarra of my adeptic circle

Upon concluding workshop in rustic Mangayao
We motored pronto to famed Hundred Islands
Lucky enough we came on a nice weekday
With few people we got Quezon Island solo

On late afternoon I climbed a mount of site
To meditate and pray to Almighty’s Presence
And at dusk fall we camped on concrete edifice
That awaited our camaraderie with songs & poems

Truly beautiful and mystical too are those islands
With Manuel Quezon gracing statue on an isle
Amid howling winds at night we slept so real good
At morning photos & time to go to bless our mood

BANAHAW

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

In Sept ’93 came the momentous occasion
For me to climb the bosom of Mt Banahaw
A mystical moment twas truly memorable
With students in UP Manila to share the time

After the class in social movements did I decide
We go up great Banahaw to conclude the term
And then by late afternoon we shall swim & camp
As dusk approaches we read poems & stories too

Just upon arrival did the mountain Diva reveal
Herself to my inner focal sending messages
Intuit did I those thoughts of camaraderie
With Nature world to share the holy estate

Then came the knowledge sometime in ‘99
That Banahaw will be home to Planetary Chi
To beacon Filipinas’ role in Aquarian Age
As Mother’s Womb for all the times’ adage

[Philippines, 22 January 2011]
