Guaranteed Refuge

Veneration has residences
tarries on fingertips
ancient combinations
of movement and tune
the working on drum
tight whip-grip
replication of lightning
invoking in scripted order
an outcome collectively sought;
veneration is a thread
running through pageant
whispering through music
the festival of sound
a thin light-sliver
stitching devotion
side stepping spectacle
and in the midst of it all
the silent acknowledgment
of enduring giver
of unmeasured strength
assured, assured, assured refuge:
the Dalada Hamuduruwo.
