Ang Bird ni Father

Umiiyak si Father isang umaga,
Bird kasi niya’y naglaho sa hawla.
May nagnakaw – ang kanyang suspetsa
Kaya’t nagpasya itong magimbestiga.

Bird na naturan mahal na mahal niya,
Hinihimas palagi gabi’t umaga,
Kasa-kasama kahit saan magpunta,
Maging sa pagtulog… hawak-hawak niya.

Kaya’t sumumpa s’yang ito’y hahanapin.
Sukdulang bawat bahay hahalughugin.
Pagiging pari sumumpang gagamitin,
Upang ang bird niya muling makapiling.

Nanawagan pagkasampa sa pulpito,
Pasimpleng tinanong ang mga Katoliko.
Ang tanong, “Sino ba ang may bird sa inyo?”
Syempre nagsitayo lahat ng ginoo.

Paring nagtanong tila nagulantang
Kaya’t ang tanong ay kagyat pinalitan.
“Anyone seen a bird?”… bagong katanungan,
Nagsitayo mga dalaga at ginang.

Mga sumisimba’y tuluyang nagtawanan
Nang tanong ni Father, muling pinalitan.
“Anyone seen my bird?”… kanyang hirit naman
At ang mga madre biglang nagtayuan.

About HARDPEN

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
