Geometry

Paddy-field terraces
Full of hidden crevices
Tea-bush slopes
Where aroma elopes
Zig-zag and criss-cross
Hither and tither, to and fro
You never know what pattern will show
You just follow the geometry’s flow

Palm fronds and banana leaves
They are also pattern thieves
A quilt of different greens
Who knows what it means
Zig-zag and criss-cross
Hither and tither, to and fro
Where it leads to you never know
You just follow the geometry’s flow

Paddy-field terraces
Full of hidden terrors
Tea-bush slopes
Lush with human hopes
Zig-zag and criss-cross
Hither and tither, to and fro
Giving the land a special glow
Making everyone follow geometry’s flow

This is a land of geometry
With a landscape full of mathematics
Mountain ranges depict
The knuckels on a lover’s calloused hand
Mountain peaks cast
Shadows in a perfect triangle’s shape
There’s a Rock looking like the Bible
There’s a holy mount with a footprint on the top
And a Mount belonging to a girl named Lavinia
It’s a landscape full of advanced mathematics
In this land of Asian geometry

This is a land of geometry
With mathematics of its own
Bodies look different
With cinnamon on a lover’s chocolate skin
Women look different
With coconut oil and jasmin in their hair
There’s bitter-chocolate skin and coffee one
There’s a choice between caramel and ivory
And blistering heat covering all with green shadows
It’s a landscape full of complex calculations
In this land of mysterious geometry

This is a land of geometry
With social mathematic theories
A semi non-existant caste system
Supporting a low-land up-country divide
A semi non-existant political system
Igniting a fierce Sri Lankan Tamil friction
There’s peaceful co-existance of religions
There’s stubborn maintenance of traditions
And a common multi-colonial history’s impact
There’s a society full of arithmetic riddles
In this land of un-geometric geometry
