    Actually the woman in picture is you think non-entity amid celebrity. Yes, she is observing. One day she may act or perhaps not. But she is there. She is she, undeniably.

    I like to republish this in my blog Can you give me permission to translate it into Sinhala. (

Best Poem of Vivimarie VanderPoorten

There’s A Woman

In every picture
there’s a woman
an outstretched hand
holding out scissors
carrying a garland
handing out a tool, a ribbon, a tray of certificates, awards
leaning against a car
a tyre, a bottle of soda
she’s serving a drink
pouring coffee
smiling nodding
but hardly waiting.

she’s sitting it out
observing it happen
taking down
the dictation of life
typing out decisions of life and death

In every picture there’s a woman.
If you look very hard
You might even see her.
