Best Poem of Dilantha Gunawardana

Haikus On Pregnancy (Imperfect Haikus)

Umbilical Cord

The tap root of man
Permeating the soil of a goddess
On planet womb


Womb

Two heart beats
Entrapment in a body
Resonance


Unwed Mother

Careless contraceptives
Or immaculate conception
Echoes of infamy

Father

The benevolent man
And his miraculous seed

Flame

Like a flame that seeks redemption,
From Aeolus's thrusts,
Via a pair of palms that unite,
To form a monumental wall;
I seek my own pair of palms;
To unite for a simple prayer;
For a miraculous intervention;
Two eyes that stare at mine's;
With a symbiotic dependency.

[Hata Bildir]
