Impressions

by Elizabeth Omengan

Dear All,

Thank you for a stimulating, informative and useful gathering! Here is my tribute:

HERITAGE  ...GONGS

A gathering recalled

                 ...back home

Gongs of different families

      are assembled, and

      are arranged by sound.

Men discern the beat

      Women and children dance

      To the rhythm of gongs forged in China.

At ICBE-Ireland,

Gongs...

      Brought to Europe

      Journeyed to Tipperary.

Happy migrant Igorots danced

      To a set of gongs forged at Lepanto.

Hardwood sticks made resounding ring.

Softwood, the practiced ears desire

      For there are more tricks to sound techniques

      Including the soundless beat of the apprentice.
