Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


Fame


Sculptures of the sky, constellations of light
Paving highways to journeys of the heart
As road maps are absented, to transcend mortality
Hitch-hikers saddled, to the dorsal fins of light
Chasing cosmological dreams, astral fusions
To sketch one's sculpture on celestial floor tiles
To shine forth an endowment of reflection
To be engraved in the manuscripts of space and time
To metamorphose from ashes to heavenly star-dust
To embrace the nirvana of a cosmic legend

On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
