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,
