Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


Monsoonal Lust


The sodden wind
That blows through my soul
As I gaze
At your monsoonal lips
Like rain drops
Dappled on strawberries

Unveiling sinful longings
From abyssal depths
To worship horizon to horizon
Your tanned bamboo veneer
Your corporeal wilderness

To smell your petrichor
Skin glazed in rain drops
To taste your forbidden fruit
To solvate to your moist lips

For rain is the prelude
And lust the fugue

For the monsoon
Is the quintessential aphrodisiac
That wets your thoughts
With the moisture.........

Of lust

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
