A Summer Mistral - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

She a perpetual force
Gushing through coconut groves
Rippling lattices of slender leaves
Basking under falling sunbeams
Gliding pass auras of hurtling fauna
Erecting savannahs of luscious fur
For the evanescence of moisture
Through corridors perforating cultivars of follicles
Yet she is vulnerable like an infant turtle
Strolling to its ocean horizon
For she is caged by the airy lungs of man
As she molts her throne of godship
The divinity of Aeolus metamorphosing
To the mortality of a virtual convict
Her entrapment deep beneath the breasts of man
Yet she transcends like a diamond in Gaia's womb
As she embraces the vitality of her being
Deep in the soul of the chassis of man
As she dissolves in the springs of life
To embrace her mortal destiny
As the keeper of man
