Valentine

To my Jim, I am yours and you are my everything. You make my world; complete, unbending and the colours of my world.  This is the letter that I give you; pressing it to my lips for my chest that floods for you. It is the wishbone that I wish upon when I think of the beautiful curve of your smile. It sings to me.  Be my valentine as we travel through the night on faint of breath. You are the beauty that surrounds me as I whisper these words to you;  “So happy you are mine, my love; you … Continue reading Valentine

About Palm Trees

It is in these quiet moments, I can hear the wind in the palms as it were a symphony playing. When a coconut falls to the ground, it almost sounds like the beating wings of a bird in flight. All is silent until it falls.  It’s a silent touch when look me with longing eyes. I listen and wait for the taste of that honey sweet. It’s that anticipation that speaks to me; a taste so much more than mere words can whisper.  You see, there are no words for some things. Just us and the day without the linguistic … Continue reading About Palm Trees

Udawalawe 

Udawalawe created a watershed; the Udawalawe Reservoir. It was built for the refuge of Asian elephants in Sri Lanka located just south of the central mountains.  There it has extensive stretches of grassland as well as scrub jungle and riverine forest.  It’s the best in the continent for the protection and for observing Asian elephants in the wild.  Elephant sightings are even guaranteed when you only go on a safari drive.  Continue reading Udawalawe

Temple Flower

The temple flower is not only beautiful, but its scent is like the chemistry of wine or tea. For many generations, the ancients painted this flower on the walls of temples and on papyrus. Even countries across Asia have shared the same imagery.  The sacred flower not only creates a relaxing sensation of euphoria, and increases vibrations of the heart, but also triggers genetic memory; a good memory with an awakened heart ushering wisdom. Don’t go quiet on my account. I miss the sound of your voice. I don’t think we are destined to be without love. Because for all … Continue reading Temple Flower

Moon flower

At night in the garden When everything comes alive There is sweet song It surrounds my heart. Beyond the quiet end of day, Whispering to the trees to pray, Laughing with the moon flower, Falling in love with the sunset, Consulting with the moon, Gazing up at the starry sky. With my hand over my heart, The hand other touching the earth, Discovering the generosity Here born of this Universe. Its beauty caresses my soul Then a gentle touch goodnight, Like a beautiful dream beginning, Moon colors blooming in mystery, Only at night of an unreal light, Translucent and pale. … Continue reading Moon flower

Myna Bird

Waking up this morning to the calls of two myna birds croaking, squawking and chirping along with the clicks and whistling whilst fluffing their feathers in their morning ritual bath. I was infatuated watching the two of them bob their head in singing. They bathe every morning in Christopher’s front garden in his pond. He said there were two guppies in the pond, but strangely they have gone missing somehow.  A few years ago, I would have not dream that I would be here in Sri Lanka, nor did I think I would be so curious as to watch myna … Continue reading Myna Bird
