Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


Atlantis Regained


Beyond any horizon
Veiled by the dominion of water
Is a quaint universe
No man has ever claimed

Lost in the wrath of Neptune
As Himalayan waves rose
To kiss the convivial heavens
To bury her body deep within
The aquamarine fortress

Now she lies
Protected by gangly lattices of seaweed
And kaleidoscopic sea anemone
Where sea mustangs gallop
On their hind tail
And sea cucumber slither
On their ventral packs

As she awaits
For the fateful day
When sea calypsos descend
To her turquoise gates
When her chastity
Will be taken
By wanderers with tanks

She is but the lost continent of Atlantis
That will surrender your senses
To her idyllic beauty

For paradise was once lost
And now awaiting her culmination
In a Miltonian sequel

For Atlantis to be regained........

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
