Best Poem of Dilantha Gunawardana

Haikus On Pregnancy (Imperfect Haikus)

Umbilical Cord

The tap root of man
Permeating the soil of a goddess
On planet womb


Womb

Two heart beats
Entrapment in a body
Resonance


Unwed Mother

Careless contraceptives
Or immaculate conception
Echoes of infamy

Father

The benevolent man
And his miraculous seed

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

[Hata Bildir]
