The Beauty of Vavuniya

A beauty of vavuniya

the beauty of Vavuniya

In my recent visit to Vavuniya, I visited a women’s self help group in Thekkawatta. They had all come with their children, dressed up for a show. It was good to see how much beauty is there in Vavuniya, despite all the turmoil and sad stories we hear from the camps.


it is the line of motifs,
the rule of fate
as ancient as the carvings
on a moonstone,

like something symbolic

written on an ola leaf

with a speical sort of pen.

something scultped in to the sands of time

an elephantine miniature, in stone
