Hardly I count my faded previous births Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Once in Alaska I caught fish and lived in my Igloo
Unfortunately not married till I die.
When Christopher Columbus found America
I was a Turtle in the Pacific Ocean.
I served as a butler to Duke of Edinburgh in the Victorian era.
During the World War (II) I was the Alsatian pet dog to Adolf Hitler.
Now I live in America with my singsong beloved and two old suitcases that full of bygone unlimited hopes.
Sometimes in my colored dreams I see turtles, Igloos, dogs and I play baseball with Hitler, Columbus and Duke of Edinburgh.

*** Many happy returns of the day to Independent America!

    Sounds as though your previous incarnations have been as diverse as they have been challenging, Nimal. The current one, I know, is irksome to you. Hopefully the wonderful poetry you write (despite all the odds) makes up for some of your angst. It certainly gives pleasure to those who are privileged to read it.

    What a fantastic imagination you have, my inventive friend.
    10/10 for your originality. I needed that smile on this
    Sunday morning.

    Always your friend,
