Eyes (6 Imperfect Haiku Poems) - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana


Two converging eye lids
Enclosing the pupa

The Tropics

Seeping from the sockets
Are tears saturated in mirth
A monsoonal gusher

Love Fool

Slave to aesthetic beauty
Wooed by the extravagance of color
Yet blinded by love

Day and Night

Mercurial force
A blend of light and darkness
Circadian clock


Hazel irises
On an ivory backdrop
Infinite amber

Shaded Beauty

Titanium frames
On a deep blue horizon
Stealing beauty
