Crisp claps of bright light

Fill the world anew

Through shades of orange

In sweet scent of dew

Fill the riverside

With roses, a few

"Then there was light"

Romblon Island, Mark Ugalino (2019)

O'er the sea they call

Angry winds blowing, showing

Clashing waves must calm

Sailing through growing, hoping

Should we dare unfold

Future seas crouching, creeping

Rising tides must fall

Dawn shall come brightly shining

"Sailor's Call"

Sa panaghoy ko ay aagos na

Kadilimang wangis ay paglubog

Dulot ay sugat na kay lalim pa

Sandatang makinang, b'wan ay hubog

Kagyat na tawagin ngalan niya

Buhay ko'y yanigin ng pagkulog

Subuking ako ay gisingin pa

Sandaang taong kong pagtulog

Liwayway, ika'y magpakita na

Ng makita pa, sinta kong irog

"Takipsilim" (Dusk)

Mark Ugalino (June 22, 2020)

In dreary sadness shall flow

Darkness that pulls you, sinking

Due to wounds that do not show

Cut by a crescent, waning

Shout her name, fast and forego

The silence perturbed, shaking

Wake me up and you shall know

Hundred years I spent, sleeping

Daybreak in the sky shall grow 

For I shall see you, loving

"Dusk" (Takipsilim)

UHS Infirmary, Mark Ugalino (2019)

Kay lamig na sandalang

tila hinigop aking lakas

Bakal na taksil, halang

saksi sa hirap kong dinanas

Kailan ang inakalang

sukdulan ng parusa ni 'Nas?

"Higa" (Lie Down)
