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

Woman 3

Show me a woman
That can turn a man with her hips
In the artistry of burlesque and belly
Show me a woman
That can be filled with pancakes
And fill a size 16 dress
Show me a woman
Who can kiss you like spring
And color you like autumn
Show me a woman
That can hold you like a harbor
And scaffold your spirits with her hold
Show me a woman
That can collapse your knees
Even in the absence of a ring
Show me a woman
Who can wrench real tears
And soak a cotton handkerchief
Show me a woman
That can fill you and empty you
Like water to finite...
