Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


The Sound Of Silence


The placid Indian ocean
Sans a ripple from the horizon
The sun in her customary habit
From daybreak to twilight
A butterfly on a mango leaf
Sans a flutter of her gossamer wings
The stare of a prowling leopard
Flaunting her spotted birth stitch
A cup of scorching Darjeeling tea
Awaiting the caress of her lips
A flickering candle flame illuminating
A rundown edifice of a pauper
The esoteric world of a deaf child
As she parts with a smile at retina's capture
A slumbering frame of a new born
With a thumb inside her delicate lips
Silent tears flowing from lacrimal glands
As a fragile heart embraces torrents of nostalgia
The eye of a storm parting with a serene smile
Amidst the raging turmoil around
Lips converging and holding for an eternity
To taste the prosperity of each others lips
As God parts with a smile from the heavens
Gazing at providence pausing for a second

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;
