Biography of Dilantha Gunawardana

I am an academic, a lecturer/scientist in the Molecular Plant Sciences and an accidental poet who experiments with poetry. I am a dreamer by default (blame it on the genes: -)) and I am a realist on occasion. Love creativity and dread monotony, a late bloomer who loves the little things in life, from fireflies to Haiku poems and star-lit skies to quirky trivia.

Poppy's Hold

The suns raps like burning lava on the skin
As the peau embraces life in its scorching thin
Where the bactrian camels roam in absolute glee
Where fields of poppy smile in their domes of free

Not a mercenary but a proud soldier within
As the terrain desecrates the life from within
As a bomb explodes taking away the carrier's life
Hoards of innocence at mercy in the unfolding strife
