Amphitheaters of Dreams Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana


Fate imposes herself
On amphitheaters of dreams
With erect claws the size of tridents
Pouncing on innocent men
Saddled to the juggernaut of audacity

For love is a mythical quest
Source of all mortal deed
As man marches on against forces of fatum
Past belligerent soils
To behold the pearl of his savage heart

For the temple of courage
Lives within the compass of man
Steered by the wheel of his will
As he sculpts his own inimitable crossroad
With mallets of his breath
And chisels of his sweat
