Old Bridge across Banaoang Pass in acrylic (60" x 41") painted by the author for Dr Laurence (Rencie) Padernal on his 60th birthday, April 29. 2012

Flow on countless rivulets and rills,
down the streams of the Cordillera range;
flow and flood the Abra valley
and snake through the Banaoang Pass
down under the old Quirino Bridge;
flow downstream and deposit your load
on the dove-tailed delta of Santa
down Caoayan town and Vigan alluvia.

Flow into the estuaries of Puerto,
the fishponds of Sta. Catalina
and the salt beds of San Sebastian;
or meet the tired waters of Bantaoay
from San Ildefonso and Bantay;
flow into the bedrock and aquifers
that feed the springs and wells

that water the fields of San Vicente
and the tail ends of the upland
and duck under the dunes of sand.

Flow finally to the end of your lap,
and rest into the arms of the South China Sea
as heaven smiles and the waves clap. ~
