Transcript of Untitled Prezi
The poem presents the volcano first via allusion, referring to its myth, particularly to Pagtuga's arrow which killed Magayon. The death of Magayon and her lover Panginoron in the poem become more than just an end, but also a beginning.
The poem proceeds from there, using an image of death to imply possibility of life. Images play a very significant role. In the poem, as the volcano is described in many different ways. Images aren't only visual; they can present their sensory impressions using any of the five senses.
These images do more than just present sensory impressions to the reader, however, but go beyond that, expanding from being merely descriptive to becoming figurative. The images vary widely, from having the lips of a young child in the third stanza, to having the lava of the volcano look like excrement, or having the same image look like betel nut juice (nganga) in the same stanza.
What becomes clear, by the last stanza, is that all images tie in together. There is the impression of beauty and danger, as the final image, that of a beautiful security guard waiting to frisk the viewer of the volcano, becoming both warning and invitation at the same time.
Brief Analysis by the group
The poem is clearly free verse since it does not follow any rhythmic pattern . Within each vividly described lines, a deeper meaning regarding how Mayon be both dangerous and beautiful can be found.
The persona was describing the mayon volcano by what he perceived at the image of the post card, mayon volcano was described as a beautiful guard that watches overs us- the persona possibly described the mayon as such because of the height and view it has of the people of albay, it's the perfect place to watch over the residents of the area because you get a panoramic view if it. The line "handa sa pag kapkap nag hihinintay sa iyong pagpasok" to me comes across as how the lives of the residents of the area could easily be claimed by a single eruption, turning the people to ashes, a way for them to be reclaimed by the earth (with reference to the belief that we were made from clay).

Ayon sa alamat, lason ng pana ni Pagtuga,
Ang lumikha sa bulkan – libingan ito
ng dalagang namatay sa isang digmaan.
Ngayon, ano ang tutubo sa paanan ng Mayon
gayong nagiging malawak na itong sementeryo
ng abo, ng tao. Manganganak na kaya ito?
Tinitigan ko ang nakangangang bulkan – binalot
ng ulap at ng sariling usok ang tuktok, gatas sa labi.
"aka sakali, magpakita, nang may silbi ang kamera.
Sa ilang retrato na ibinebenta ng mga bata sa Cagsawa
lusaw na tae ang nagliliyab na lava, dumadaloy pababa.
Matandang nag-nganganga ayon naman sa isang makata.
Sa isang lumang postcard na nakita ko sa Antigo Merkado-
Kapag sa malayo, isa siyang magandang sikyung nakatanod,
handa sa pagkapkap, naghihintay sa iyong pagpasok.
