A Punishment In The Act Of Play - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

A Higher Authority has punished him for stealing the Rainbow
And pawned in a Harem.
After sometimes punished him again
Because he has redeemed and replaced it in a better sky.
He remained as a poet in the entire drama
Until the last scene.

* Darling! How do we grab the Life with three pennies?
A miniature gift for my beloved spouse on our 37th Wedding Anniversary falls today.Thank our Lord, We still breathe and struggle on the quicksand as usual.
We watch ourselves in the mirror and the gray hair tells; 'Still remember your juvenile faces.' And I found a teardropp gathers in her small eye.

    Your love is always wrapped in melancholy - and the result is most endearing. Oh Nimal, although the hair greys and the eyes dim, the pen writes more and more fluently as the years pass. Congratulations to you both on your anniversary. Your dear wife must be very proud of her poet husband.
    Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    I think it was Browning who wrote, 'Grow old
    along with me, The best is yet to be...'
    i wish this for both of you. Happy
    Anniversary!

    Kind regards,

    Sandra
