Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


A Mermaid Fantasy


Down to the waters woven in sapphires
With an infernal heart burning with desires
To wade on the gentle virgin sand
To hop in gaiety like an African eland
Gazing at an aquamarine garden
At the playground of the indomitable Poseidon
Hoping to catch a glimpse
Of the mystical beauty of an ocean’s sphinx
The torso of an earthly goddess
Yet a tail of a pelagic princess
With warm blood rushing pass the veins
And soft gingerly-combed manes
With lavender scales sculpted in clay
Brought to life in the tranquility of a secluded bay
As the eyes yearn for her evasive imprint
For the heart to accelerate to a sprint
The pursuit of a creature passionate and sassy
To inflame bonfires of a tempestuous fantasy
Then from the corner of the gazing eye
A lavender tail embraces the sky
Jumping across the azure-tinted heavens
As the surf of hope blissfully leavens
As a heart moist with desire chases a mermaid
Poseidon coveys his wrath in waters displayed
As the surging waves tempers the fiery desire
The heart laments in the absence of fire
As a magical fantasy plunges to the Indian ocean
All hope is lost of a tryst with a mythical mer-maiden

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
