Lyrical Jaffna

Land of life
made for trespassing
in this uniform or that
torn in the name of nation
of liberation 
by ancient threads
of being and knowing
land that suffers all
land wrapped in prayer
in tides that go
and take away all footprints
but that of human things
a singular smile 
a boat that came home
and wheels that turn.  

[Inspired by the photography of Savithri Vithanage]
