Treasure Island

nimal dunuhinga

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

April Moon hides in the unrelated sky


I do not see any difference between Saudi Arabia and the state of California.
It's really warm here now.
I peep into the vessels from the Seaport of Jeddah Tower
How they dropp their anchors in the designated positions with a singsong?
Here I stuck in a Gas station and I watch the pale blue night sky.
It's the same Moon and nothing being changed but I have changed my dear!
I am almost old and sick
And I cannot play the lute like earlier as the loosened strings never gives the heart-stricken melody.
Now I realized the sky and earth are entirely different
Though it's belongs to the same Master.
Along this parallel journey we never come across and let the mysterious fate dance as usual with the poor souls.

    Such melancholy delivered with such a sad pen Nimal, and yet you're right. It's the same moon and the same sky irrespective of where you stand in this wide and wondrous world. May your life lift a little over coming months as you continue to charm us with your magical words. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
