*even though unequal

unity in function…

the fingers!

 

ஏற்றத் தாழ்விலும் 

இணைந்த இயக்கம் 

விரல்கள் 

 

*many coloured flowers

in a single fibre …

the feelings of integrity!

 

பல வண்ண மலர்கள் 

நார் ஒன்றில் …

ஒருமைப்பாட்டுணர்வு

 

*the tears overflowed

for the little sparrows…

we sold the house!

 

கண்ணீர் கரைபுரண்டன 

விற்ற வீட்டின் 

சிட்டுக் குருவிகளுக்காக 

 

*though drowned

blossomed as water circles…

stone thrown in the pond!

 

 மூழிகிய்ம் மலர்ந்தன 

நீர் வட்டங்களாய் 

குளத்தில் எறிந்த கல்.

 

*to protect the environment

refused to peck

the silent woodpeckers

 

மரத்தை கொத்தாமல்

மௌனமாய் மரம் கொத்திகள்

சுற்று சூழல் பாதுகாப்பு 

 

*for seeing the horizon

a sweet journey…

towards the home town!

 

தொடு வானத்தை தரிசிக்க

இனிய பயணமாய் …

பிறந்த கிராமம் நோக்கி 

 

*the personal language of

the Universe

is silence

 

அகிலத்தின் 

அந்தரங்க மொழி 

மௌனம் 

 

*while stepping down

refused to show their faces

the mountain steps.

 

இறக்கி விடும் பொழுது 

முகம் காட்ட மறுக்கின்றன 

மழைப் பாதைப் படிகள்.

 

*even the bitter relations

become sweet jack-fruit-peals

in the shadow of separation

 

உவர்க்கும் உறவுகளும் 

இனிக்கும் பலாச்சுளையாய்

பிரிவின் நிழலில். 

 

*to see the flowers

always searching in the soil

the roots of a plant

 

மலர்களைத் தேடி 

மண்ணுக்குள் …

வேர்கள்.

 

*The bamboo embraced

The winter fire holes…

Lovely flute born!

 

அக்கினித் துளைகளை 

அரவணைத்தன மூங்கில்கள் 

புல்லாங்குழல் பிரசவமானது
