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

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
