King Coconut Tree In A Dream

Poem By Dulakshi Wakista

I marvelled
and stood in bewilderment
When it was dark and raining
When all at once
I saw a tree
A golden king coconut tree
Beside the paddyfield,
near cannal
Moving and
shaking in the breeze
The wind blew high and
Its fronds were waving up
in the sky
Oh! it's getting too dark,
It's the time for the birds
To fly their nests,
Thunder and lightning
tore asunder
The peaceful nature,
The rain drops fell
On top of its stately feathers
And made the day mysterious
I stared and stared
and some thoughts
came to my mind
The king coconut tree stands
steady in inclement weather
Its roots are strong
like our ancestors,
Its trunk is solid
like our great grandparents,
Its sprouts are like our parents,
Its fronds are like our children,
Thousands of blooms appear
like our unborn children,
The king coconuts are
like our grandchildren.....
It's a unique scene,
that's vividly
emblazoned in my heart,
Yet, it's so inspiring
Like reading a verse in a novel
I wish if it would be a
recurring dream today and forever......

God knows that I've fallen in love
Since the day I was born
I've felt that you and I are bound together
When I see you

Sun Burnt Me.....

I walked to the door step
It was a sunny day
Uncle Johnny called me outside
I ran and passed the pine tree

Destiny engraved in our lives
When virtue and vice sway to and fro
Energized and driven by supernatural forces

At black midnight
The leaves fluttered and
