The Kashyapa Of Sigiriya

a poem by Palitha Ranatunge

You have left your
Uniqueness to be captured
With great respect and gratitude
Throughout centuries
Appreciated deeply
In future, the time immemorial
In Centuries ahead,

You were a great man, we would love to imagine
your greatness according to our perceptions
You must have been handsome
Young, strong and flexible
To live in such a mountain trek
With all entertainments around
For a real man and king,

In spite of all grandeur
having all the skilled workers
Available, you had not endeavoured
To place a statue or to draw a picture
Of your grace, craving for an eternal fame
As done by other kings as a gift
To the future,

May be it reveals the simplicity
Of you and your appreciations for
Only the art and its value
Not like other kings who had been
Promoting nothing but
Their self and selfishness
Tampering true pages of history,

You are the most valiant commandant
At warfare having courage to
Kill yourself before the shame of
Defeat, showing world the utmost
dignity of a lion heart
Having left all loved ones behind
At the rock castle,

Having such bravery and dignity in heart
I doubt the history as to your patricide
You may have deported to a land
far from your flawed inheritance,
The history is the deeds of mankind
But not a manipulated version of the past
By fake historians disgracing the great,

Can anybody witness for such evidence?
As to a repentance of a man
Who committed such a patricide?
Who hid himself fearing death?
I only can gather tastes of a sensitive human
With utmost love for artistry, creativity and
a heart full most precious kind of simplicity.
