Treasure Island

Udaya R. Tennakoon


Autumn light


Leaves in trees
Shading out
Green color to yellow
I did not see crouching
And become quiet
In the cold of autumn

Opened the door and
Closed again
Began to read
A new chapter

In the way of running
Touched the mind
Lighting up a candle
In a cloud of darkness

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
