Short and sweet…

Thanks to Sethu from Chennai for sending this along to me:

இலக்கியம் பல படித்து
இரவுகள் பல வழித்து
கவிதை படைக்கிறேன்…
தொலைபேசியில் நீ சொல்லும்
..ம்.. என்பதற்கு ஈடான
கவிதை என்னிடம் இல்லை.

–by Sam Sudarsan, on his Facebook page.


ilakkiyam pala padithhu
iravugaL pala vizhithhu
kavithai padaikkinrEn…
tholaipEshiyil nee sollum….enbatharkku eedAna
kavithai ennidam illai.

I read a lot
Keep awake through the nights
And create a poem…
I have no poem
As good as
the “mm” that you say
On the telephone.

Delightful little vignette…
