Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


Finding Neverland


Will my condemned soul find the shrine of love
In the magical lyricism of a vow
Amidst doves with fluttering wings
And levitating balloon strings
Or will my blistered feet be plodding alone
In the absence of a Samaritan to condone
Amidst stares of a voracious vulture
A mere stranger to a serendipitous culture
Will the convivial arms of a mystical land
Embrace a trekker plodding on porous sand
For my idle feet to root to a magical soil
To plant my seed where love banishes toil
A checkerboard land where prosperity surmounts
A tapestry of treacle rivers and snow-capped mounts
A land uprooted of sinister memories
Embellished with anecdotes of incarnate reveries
A land like no other, seeping her innate charm
Like a harbor for lost souls, waters of an enduring calm
Then from afar I see a sign glowing in the sun
As my feet metamorphose to a sprightly run
As I ran across to the sign, the feet patting against the terrain
The sign read ‘Neverland’, nirvana for a boy trapped in a man

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
