MASCOTA

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

 

The day has just begun.

Here in my studio flat the air reverbs

With notes of dance music from disco fame

Preparing my psyche for the gym time waitin’.

 

From here I’m transported back to the 60s.

A tot I was then watching Ybanag culture

From my curious yet ignorant social focals.

There to wallow a bit as my Grandpa struts

The humble sala of our rising new home

Displaying with gusto the music of mascota

Dances with my Grandma to savor eternity

Of merriment and glowful likings for cultural spree

Of our locality we call by thee: Ybanag.

REST THEE CARABAO

REST THEE CARABAO

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

 

 

From childhood to young adulthood I feasted myself

With sights of carabaos at work in fields of planters

 

Like willful servant the carabao has been unto us

Humble Filipinos of an aegis of rustic past

 

Came forth new times and tractors filled the lands

Where carabaos once tread the fields till wee hours

 

Gradually did carabaos came to rest at last

No more to shame nor lame for slave tasks

 

So let it be the new mark of unfolding times

That carabaos be our true friends sit in glory

NEW EARTH RISING

 

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

 

My old sociology notes have taught me well

Old worlds do pass to give way to new realms

Barely passing away the old world’s womb a-bear

The new world birthing so fresh as a babe

 

Likewise did I digest the lessons high

From mystic science come forth parallel notes

Of how a planet might be crashed to lows

Till density reached scratch bottom as we are

And then by deeds of benign divinities

Send forth multiple Buddhas gurus saints

Same planet finally moves up back to higher climes

A-born the old world perishes to oblivion’s cask

 

Fulfilled in tasks the starry souls do now proclaim

The old Earth dies so soon to make its claim

In history writ ‘tis done its role so clear

To give way now to new Earth arising near

Shaken off Earth’s back as lands recast

Turbulent waters washing dirt of older mast

Till past catastrophe as any newborn babe a-pass

The new Earth to nourish new races en masse

 

As new humanity unveils the virtues o’ jewels

Shall birds and mammals be more tame like sibs

No more will foul zoology nor vegetation be

As all of life forms croon blend in harmony

 

Arise! New Earth! Go forth to claim your place

In cosmic history seat in Halls of Grandeur

Happy will be Almighty One at last for thy ascent

That lower worlds shall later emulate with honor

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

O! Father-Mother! Holiest of all Divinities!

Let this humble rishi offer thoughts of praises

Thank Thee so much for graces wisdom will

For inspiration care compassion Self to wean

 

Behold! This humble soul had climbed the heights

Thanks to the opportune moments bounties too

The will to shape myself like sculptor crafting

The Self from rough stone sculpted now so fine

 

Till finally at sojourn’s end am a Star at last

My Light Body activated shining like lantern

So mighty a Being is this Oversoul of mine

Can heal and take down devils with balls of Light

 

Ensue yet my own humble missions of hands on

Spread the holy Teaching to enthused seekers

Protect them mighty well from demons hostile

Till they move forward ascend to higher climes

Immeasurable love and graces always offered

Like cascading waters graces nourished me

Never in want as I’ve to missions ensued

 

A zillion thanks o! Mother-Father o’ all!

More thanks to come as sojourn more will I

One day to do more missions upon thy calling

To Thee a humble servant will I ever be

THANKSGIVING SIRIUS

 

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

 

O! Sirius! Home of my early pedigree

Where my Adam Kadmon galvanized in me

O! Starry Lords so High that birthed me right

Blessed by Almighty photonized me One

 

Sent me unto Terra with my true nation

From Blue Planet like unto Earth we came

In gigantic starships dashed the hyperspace

Bringing forth compassion knowledge sagely miens

 

Sent forth that help we may the hordes of Terra

Who till now behave much lower than gorilla

Trapped in polarity ceases not to war and plunder

Destroying lives they are of predatory countenance

 

Sent forth from Future we came from divine stars

Of binary suns two we had then atop our skies

From Future cast down Earth to test our mettle

And help the Terran humans rise above cattle

 

No matter how badly homesick we all are

Sacrificing limbs and lives for Terra’s semi-apes

We stood and gave ourselves to mission’s crucibles

Now finally reap fruits ascension avows

 

Thank thee Lord Sirius and Holy Logoi!

Let us Sirians o’ Terra offer hymns to thee All

Praise thee Almighty Creator o! Father-Mother!

A zillion thanks for this ascension grace

WAR

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

War is the namesake of the islands

A Dantean discernment will not
Permit one to argue that
The archipelago
Is a paradise
Lost or regained

Of the islands’ fetid state
Excrement and humans sanctimoniously fuse
They cajole in ecstatic screams
Over killings and bombings
Gore is everyday’s luscious panorama

We’re brought back to Rome
Here
Where jubilant crowds satiate themselves
With sights of bloody gladiators
In combat

Brought back to Jesus’ Jerusalem still
Since everyone wants to play
Pilate
Guiltless of motives behind
Wars
In hinterlands
In cities

Is gore the imprimatur of honor indeed?
Just like blood is eaten as delicacy?

[Writ. 29 May 91, Cubao, Quezon City, M.Manila]
