Sinigayan


The loud drum beats of bliss
People cheering whilst dancing
The abundance of culture
Everywhere you see people smiling

The burst of colour on the streets
The welcoming Sagaynons' efforts
The congregation of the people
The undying competition of booths

The events held at the city plaza
The expression of arts and talents
The delicacies of each barangays
& the Burst of joy and happiness

More and more I can barely say
My vision to it was unfading
The memory of my childhood
The memory of the past that clings

How I missed this festival
How eager I am to witness again
Years! Aye years passed
When shall I visit you again Sagay?

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
