எண்ணங்கள்...

கண்ணே உன் கண்களை காணும் வரை
     என் உள்ளம் நிலையாய் இருந்ததடி...

உன் கண்கள் என் திசை பார்க்கும் வரை
     என் நெஞ்சம் என்வசம் இருந்ததடி...

உன் பேச்சில் அமுதம் மழையாக
     பொழிந்திடவே என் மனம் இனித்தடி...

உன் கால்களில் கொலுசில்லாத குறை
     உன் சிரிப்பில் அறவே மறைந்ததடி... :)

Mr. Valluvar

my 2nd poem bcoz of a bus.
but this time i got a seat ( to think comfortably! :) )
having got a seat in a bus from n.b.s to o.b.s ( new & old bus stand ), just a 5-minute travel
i saw a திருக்குறள் (thirukkural) written in the bus.
so i jus thought "i'l also write one..." & started thinking...
i didnt even think i'd come up with a 'kural' so soon...
before even i reached o.b.s...!

so here's my 'kural':

அறிவார் சபையில் தானும் இருக்க
அமைதி காத்தல் அறிவு.


It means:

In a hall of well-learned people, if u r also present,
keeping mum is the best thing to be done.

atlast i've become Mr. Valluvar...! :)

...Luck n Love...

i'm lucky to have met u...

i feel luckier to have got the strength to
propose u my love...

and i'd be the luckiest if u acept my proposal...

oh, my dear!
plz make me feel the luckiest in this whole world...!

the accidental poet...

i was abt to get into a bus to go home &
there was an unexpected rain...
was so frustrated over the rain as the whole town
gets worse abt its roads!

somehow i managed to get into a bus, with others' slippers
painting my pants with the brownish wet soil...

fine. stil more frustrating!

wit my right arm holding a rod for balance and my left arm in my pocket,
i could do nothing other than making my idle brain do some idle thoughts...
and that was frustrating, too!

a lot of topics started popuring in.
as usual my favourite mythology & even the ones i hate-like chemistry.

i never thought 'poetry' could come in!
i got some poetic thoughts which i never expected.
though it was a new entry, it jus helped me kill the time taken to reach the bus stand.

the most unexpected part was that, the poetry i was thinking of, was in தமிழ்(tamil)

a poem i thought of, and then refined on reaching home:


எதிர்பாராது வந்த மழையின்போது,
எதிர்பாராது வந்த தொலைபேசி அழைப்பு...

அழைப்பை ஏற்றதும் ஒலித்ததோ
அவளது குரல்..…

Without the significance...

i had written abt my schedule n skul n ma 1st post...

it was a time when i jus knew that i was learning
"Thaithiriya Samhita" & "Thaithiriya Brahmana" in "Krishna Yajur Veda".
nothing else did i kno abt it.
bcoz v were jus taught to chant 'whatever' was given the book.
i was comfortable with it bcoz i was able to pronounce the sounds with proper modulation.
but i never even thought there exists some meaning...

the verses start like:

ishEthvOrjEthvA vAyavasthhO pAyavasthha dEvovassavithA...

and after 7-8 years, i.e recently now, i googled to kno if there exists some meaning...

and i was very much excited when i read the meaning of the fist stanza...

the page read:


i. 1. 1.

For food thee, for strength thee!
Ye are winds, ye are approachers.
Let the god Savitr impel you to the most excellent offering.
O invincible ones, swell with the share for the gods,
Full of strength, of milk, rich in offspring, free from sickness, from disease.
Let no thief, no evil worker, h…
