Treasure Island

nimal dunuhinga

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

A loose-leaf flies from the dark Inn's memory book!


I see your poem-like
that long signature
pasted on the solitary
mist-screen!
And when it disappears slowly
beyond the mountains
a teardrop on the grass
about to evaporates?
Do you remember me
with a pile of books,
once I lodged here
for a short period and
One dark rainy day
I left for my unending journey
borrowing your mackintosh
you're shocked and not even asked my name
and I too forgot to ask your name?

[We all have our time machines.
Some take us back, they're called memories.
Some take us forward, they're called dreams.]- Jeremy Irons

for my friend Paddy Martin and if I know your domicile definitely I enclose this in a Christmas card!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
