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...
