Treasure Island

nimal dunuhinga

(19, April,1951 / kalubovila East, Sri Lanka)

A bird flies beyond the sky

This rare bird tells of its encounter
When the Telescopic man gossips;
'I found nothing but emptiness
And I was breathless
Then I *flew downwards.'

* The bird used that instead of declining it seems.

    High in the sky to find empty space same as the other end of the telescope,
    we should note....

    Great. A new perspective of viewing ourselves. This opens up a new world of exploration. (Report) Reply

    A paradoxical piece about 'venturing where no man has gone before'. Your creative imagination is in fine form today, Nimal. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    The impossible dream of flying beyond the sky. Only those who are in touch
    with infinity can do that. Fascinating write.

    Warm regards,

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
