Udaya R. Tennakoon


Looking at my fingers


In my room
I saw my fingers
That I have never thought of

It were all together
But it were different to each others
I looked at and
My other hand burnished each one

I checked one by one
I wanted to know
The best one and
The hate one

Abstractly and concretely
I compared with
hopefully and hopelessly
It was difficult to find
An answer for both
Best and hate

I need all and love for all
Without anyone
It is a vacant to be called
Hand of right or left

The use and the beauty
The movement and feeling
My heart and mind will reject
If one deviate from the other

I looked back the past
That already passed
I could not
What I today attained

I wanted to write and to call
To my friends who are in silence
To my enemies to whom I closed
It was too late for past
But tomorrow is for all

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
