Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


Laughter


As a bevy of jokes leave a trail on vermillion lips
As a guffaw erupts to the humor of razor-sharp quips
Lips pulled apart as upswings the maxilla
Towering above the rosy ceiling of a zany villa
A grotto harboring the empyrean fields of sensation
As the bitten tongue rolls like a pancake in hibernation
As the mandible rocks to gravity from a buffoon's sting
The Adam's apple caws like a cacophonous engine
Lips float like a butterfly and cackle like a Kookaburra
As the symmetrical visage shines like a midsummer Ra
Mirth floats like a shawl so does the silk of hope
The birth of summer happiness for the visage in her silly elope
To hide beneath the chambers of a delirious Gelos's nucleus
As gods in seventh heaven gaze through the cover of nimbus
As the mind oozes the melancholy of yesteryear
The crucified heart exudes her pain both far and near
As the heart skips a beat like the muscle of love at first sight
The power of herculean laughter floundering her might
Oh the beauty of humor in her naked caryatid
As she levitates my world like an floating iceberg's lid
You're the earthly goddess that purifies my putrid essence
You're the best medicine to cure my mundane existence

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;
