65/2017: Mystical

She is the tempest,
strong and bold,
sometimes reckless,
a wish you cannot hold.

The power of her heart,
a sight to behold,
touches all with her art,
she breaks every mould.

AN: For my niece Shahithya (Shasha) who is 14 today, but much to her displeasure remains 8 in my eyes. 🙂 💖 💝

Event: Individuality in Identity

Really excited to share this news with you all!

I will be presenting my poems and speaking at a literary event on Friday February 24, 2017  at the Creeds Coffee Bar.

The event, “Finding Individuality in Identity: Explorations of Literature,” organized by Sri Lankans Without Borders seeks to explore the how we create, understand and speak about identity in a multicultural world.

I am also very excited to be sharing the stage with 4 other talented artists/ writers and hearing their thoughts and conceptions of Identity.

Please join us on February 24, 2017, at Creeds Coffee Bar to explore the themes of culture, individuality, and identity.

Hope to see you out there,
