Treasure Island

Pamuditha Zen Anjana

(15-08-1988 / Colombo, Sri Lanka)

Closer To The Sun


The colors fell slowly
on to the rusted Earth
for yet another day went by
with a mischievous smile

Lightly inhaling the incense of life, paused
took the safe exit, for it was worth the wait!

Alas! Wish every moment I'd be
a tender lullaby in your ears
a soft murmur beside you
a shadow that follows… Sigh!

Stirred from my sleep and you winked, Smiles
fell upon the darkness and you lit me up, literally!

With slightly trembling wings
like a new-born butterfly
rises from its cocoon, I
I started flying…

All I needed was just another unexpected eclipse
surviving the dreams, just to get closer to the Sun...

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
