Treasure Island

nimal dunuhinga

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

Christopher Columbus

If I was born on the twelfth day of October,
On which day in 1492 Columbus discovered America,
But I was born on the day 19th of April,1951 in a general hospital of Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Somehow I discovered the pinching sorrow in a nightmare
Where the childish man who struggles eternally?

* I dedicate this scribbling to my deceased pet dog. [Marco my precious son] His yelp taught me lot of things about the mysterious life.

    Very poignant. Especially, the Marco. Ten for you and ten for your
    beloved pet.

    Always your friend,
