Jayatissa K. Liyanage Poems

Value Of A Teardrop........

What worth it is of
a diamond hill in Jupiter?
Who cares a jumbo golden pearl
fossilized in Satan’s dark abyss?


From the day ‘I' viewed the first ray
All fell on line, to have paved my way
Being conscious of, the role ought to play
Treaded the path, idling, not a single day

First English Teacher Of Mine

Clad in long white pants
Folded ‘n Tucked up at ankle
Seated on mate's cycle bar
Arrived he, at our village school

Wild Flower

Every War Fought..........

Thank you so much for embracing my poem An Ode To the President! I am but one voice, however, I represent the silence that others speak here in America. My motto is, how can were succeed if we don't believe! Peace and blessings to you, Sarita
