Invisible Beauty - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

She leaves exquisite footsteps on the pristine sands
As she strides carefree on the golden bands
She is like a mistral levitating on sands of Eden
Human eyes forage to capture the divinity of a woman
Her journey from the mythical shores of Atlantis
To Serendib's captivity in search of an evasive kiss
Legends whisper of her skin gleaming like ivory milk
And tresses cascading like strands of Assam silk
Serene eyes that merge with the color of the Indian ocean
Vermillion lips that sip the richness of the monsoon's token
She is hunted by the realm of man yet she leaves no trace
Except nuances of her empyrean curves in footsteps grace
She is a diva of song as she wails for her lover to grace
A tryst with destiny woven by the tapestries of Moira's lace
To strut her succulent flesh to unravel her myth
To rupture a spell to transcend her footsteps pith
As her foot marks linger on the sands of the beachfront
Fate weaves her magic to salvage a humble soul to the waterfront
As the pouts of her mistral blow towards two convivial lips
Grains of brown sugar entwine to resurrect a woman submerged in bliss
As the sea mist transformed to unveil a goddess on earth
Burning was the heart of a man like a capacious hearth
A goddess in her birth stitch basking in her caramel skin
As a spell was broken for her incarnation to human kin
This is a story whispered by the forefathers of our terrain
As love blossomed in Eden - a legendary goddess with her first man
