Treasure Island

Udaya R. Tennakoon


You are glorious
Powerful and supper
Controlling everything
Capture into the hand.

Fauna and Flora
Make the process of photosynthesis
in order to your command
Breasts and Creepers
Subjected to your rule
Human beings too accept the regime
and accustomed to
their day today lives

All think
Existence is because of you
System centralized into the hub of you
And you are the God for them

One who challenged to you
and to the system
ultimate result was
Galileo was given or Socrates was given
Having being a Traitor, terrorist, or an enemy

However it is
anything beyond the reality
what can be done
Supreme power you hold
only a part of the time the day
and other part is not for you
the thing of important that you are ignorant
and ever fail for a solution is
that humans everyday fighting
to conquer and to eradicate
hope of ultimate end
even though you provide the light of so called nature
they are forever blindness and darkness
for their own.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
