WRITERS’ NIGHT ON WEDNESDAY

July 15, 2006

We finalized the OragonRep Writers’ Night slated on Wednesday, July 19, 6:30PM at Lolo’s Bar in Avenue Square, Magsaysay Ave.

We did send invites to some people but everybody is welcome. Just drop by the place and enjoy a night of poetry and music with us. There will be an open-mic so walk-in performers are advised to bring their poems.

We can expect Francisco Peñones, Kristian Cordero, Ben Escoto, Jason Chancoco, Noel Dorente, Jo Bisuña, Carlo Arejola, Joy Bagasala, Jun Pesimo, Rizaldy Manrique and Issa Casillan to be around come Wednesday night. The other Bikol writers are still working on their schedules.

This will also be our despedida for Frank Peñones who will be ‘leaving on a jetplane’ soon for his Ford Foundation scholarship in the US.

See you on Wednesday!

By the way, we got a copy of Burak 166-170 from G.B. Calleja in Canada. One of our Bikol-Naga poems is published there. Here’s the poem:

SA PARASURAT NA INAPON SA SALOG

Nagpipirikpitik an mga isura,
Dai masalmingan an tubig ta pasa.
Kulkol pa kan diklom asin man kan basa
An naghalong dugo, lugad, pagal, tungka.

Pinaanod na lang kan lawas an tingog.
Pamibi kan kalag dai magin bahog.
Nagpipirikpitik an mga isura,
Dai masalmingan an tubig ta pasa.

An pinakahuring pagrarawitdawit,
Naglalataw-lataw sa lumhok kan tubig.
Paluway-luway lang, nasakat sa ngabil,
Asin sinusurat sa sulog kan hangin.
Dai masalmingan an tubig ta pasa.
