I am an academic, a lecturer/scientist in the Molecular Plant Sciences and an accidental poet who experiments with poetry. I am a dreamer by default (blame it on the genes: -)) and I am a realist on occasion. Love creativity and dread monotony, a late bloomer who loves the little things in life, from fireflies to Haiku poems and star-lit skies to quirky trivia.

    What he writes is awe inspiring... It's rare to see thoughts put into words this way rather his way. After Percy Shelley, I look up to him for inspiration.
    Dear Poet,
    Keep writing since there are people who write because you write.

Best Poem of Dilantha Gunawardana

Haikus On The Moon (Imperfect Haikus)

Of Mice and Men

Craters in nightfall
Dappled on the moon surface
Cheese of the Milky Way

Skin Disease

Moonbeams falling
Blessing nocturnal creatures
With jaundiced skin

Love

Crescent of the night
Blooming in light
Love at first sight

Reflection

The impression of the moon
Reflected on firewater
Heavenly moonshine

Skinny Dipping

Two moist cheeks
Shimmering on water
Under a jealous moon

Graduate School

Burning the midnight oil
In the night shift
Moonlighting

Read the full of Haikus On The Moon (Imperfect Haikus)
