An accomplished bilingual poet, Sunil Govinnage, gives lyrical expression to his own migrant experience by writing poetry from Australia. He does it with sincerity and openness. ‘In the bewildering host country the ultra-sensitive psyche of the poet, suffered a series of culture shocks, making creative sparks fly in all directions’, wrote Kalakeerthi Edwin Ariyadasa, in a review of Govinnage’s anthology of poetry in Sinhala, Mathaka Pilirav [Echoes of Memory].
But having settled in his village down under, one could hope that the poet will now give expression to the beauty around him, and with his undoubted poetic skill, give lyrical expression to a higher level of understanding of the ‘oneness of beings’, as he has come to live in a ‘village’ which he shares with people from all corners of the world.
