Poem- Oh, Super Human! Where have you concealed yourself?

  • In Tamil: V.N.Giritharan; Translation in English Dr. R. Dharani –

Concrete! Concrete and Concrete
Walls! Ingesting the rays to radiate flames
Blameless, pellucid white surface,
Chuckling Cement-clad pathway.
In the embrace of the audacious columns,
lies enraptured spaces
heat rays cut through the layers of air.
In the pleasure of delusion over
The grass being excited
by the smiles of dew drops,
There is a gloomy cloud of thought over
The cool Lady Earth under her blue canopy.

The embracing dreams of the
Drooping tree belles’ cuddle.

The impact of artificiality
Spreading over Nature’s repository.

In trees, on grass, in herds, in caves,
In the dreadful hours of darkness,
Panicked by the lightning storm, under the torrential shower,
Coiled up in the times of bewilderment,
Continued the ancient journey

In the gyres of Nature’s Effect,
Lies the life captivated.
Are the gyres blissful dawns?
Are they the fascinating Arcadia?

In the heart that builds castles in the air
With the pride of wisdom…………
Ahhhh….. That peace of mind! That sweetness.
Where are they? Where are they?
Where to find? Alas! Where did they get lost completely?
In the smoke of the flickers, in the Fuming wars of the Classes that is
Causing the choking of breath,
The atmosphere is floundered by
The dance of bombs.

Dearest friends, who flew fearlessly!
My beloved comrades, who swam with cheerful grin!
The tree offspring who slumbered
Calmly by the breeze!
Beloved friends who are distraught by the Sixth sense!
Growing in the path of development…..?

Despair! Loss of peace! Haughtiness
War! War! War! War means ……
War! War! War!

Ahhh…………

What mistake is spurred by progress!
What mistake is spurred by progress!
What mistake is spurred by progress!
What mistake? What mistake?
What mistake?

Ahh…….. that …

Peace! Peace! Peace!
Love! Love! Love!
Joy! Joy! Joy!
Oh, Flame of Wisdom!
Where have you concealed yourself?
Where have you concealed yourself?
Where have you concealed yourself?

Poem: Liberated Bird of the Secluded Empire by V.N.Giritharan | Translation in English by By Dr. R. Dharani

I was bound in the empire of seclusion
Neither as a slave nor as an emperor …. Never
As the completely liberated bird that
Incessantly renders the musical note of joy

In the unfettered world, is there any phantom of distress?
In the world with no laws, is there any dejection possible?
The luminous companions hid themselves sheepishly behind my soaring
In the avenues of the Cosmos, it’s highly condescending
To hang on to the drifting flutter.

In the purpose-manifest life,
No repercussions nor yearning

I was bound in the empire of seclusion
Neither as a slave nor as an emperor …. Never
As the completely liberated bird that
Incessantly renders the musical note of joy

கவிதை: தனிமைச் சாம்ராஜ்யத்துச் சுதந்திரப் பறவை. – வ.ந.கிரிதரன் –

தனிமைகளின் சாம்ராஜ்யங்களில்
நான் கட்டுண்டு கிடந்திடுகின்றேன்
அடிமையாகவா? அன்றி
ஆண்டானாகவா? இல்லை
பூரணம் நிறைந்ததொரு சுதந்திரப்
பறவையெனவே. இசை
பாடிடுமெழிற் புள்ளெனவே.
கட்டுக்களற்ற உலகில்
கவலைக் காட்டேரிகள் தானேது?
சட்டங்களற்ற வுலகில்
சோகங்கள் தானேது?
ஒளித்தோழர்கள் வெட்கி
ஒளிந்தனரென் பறத்தலின் பின்னே.
பிரபஞ்சத்து வீதிகளில்
பறந்து மீள்கையில் படர்வது
பெருமிதமே.
நோக்கங்கள் விளங்கி விட்ட வாழ்வில்
தாக்கங்கள் தானேது? அன்றி
ஏக்கங்கள் தானேது?
தனிமைகளின் சாம்ராச்சியங்களில்
நான் கட்டுண்டு கிடந்திடுகின்றேன்
அடிமையாகவா? அன்றி
ஆண்டானாகவா? இல்லை
பூரணம் நிறைந்ததொரு சுதந்திரப்
பறவையெனவே.இசை
பாடிடுமெழிற் புள்ளெனவே..
