Short and sweet…

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

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

–by Sam Sudarsan, on his Facebook page.

Transliteration:

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

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

Delightful little vignette…
