Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


Evanescence


Your captivating eyes
Strewn with brown sugar
Your slender ginger locks
That smell like spring
Your sensuous lips
A mosaic of glistening garnets
The tapestry of your visage
Woven in Assam silk
In the murals of my mind
As I wrestle with your memory
Fading like the sunset
Wondering whether to let you slip away
Or to let me evanesce
Like the ebbing tide
To join you at a magical horizon

Poem of the Day
