World Poetry Day – A thought in 3 languages

Poetry dayToday is the world Poetry Day (March 21 in India so Today though in US it is tomorrow)….. Poetry has given me a meaning that I never knew existed… and there is one person to whom I am indebted for the same… So today I write about love… a similar strain of thought in three different languages… They are not exact translations but have a resemblance…. Since our poetry and the language of the poetry comes from our heart… it does not understand the ways of the sophisticated word… but it follows one word blindly and that is love…..

English
O’ love…
Pour me today some of my own life
to regain my senses enslaved by you
Take a few steps today with me so
my feet can safely part ways with me…

Malayalam – മലയാളം
സഖി……..
ഇന്നിനിയുമൽപ്പമീ ചഷകത്തിലെൻ ജീവനൊഴിക്കുക നീ
നിന്നിലലിഞ്ഞയെൻ ബോധത്തെ വീണ്ടെടുക്കാൻ….
ഒരൽപം കൂടിയിന്നെൻ കൂടെ ചുവടു വയ്ക്കുക നീ… എന്നോ
നഷ്ടപ്പെട്ട പാദമുദ്രകളിൽ എന്റെ വഴി കണ്ടെത്താൻ…
-മർത്ത്യൻ-

Hindi – हिंदी
साकी…
आज एक जाम और पिला दे
तेरा नशा उतर जाने के लिए
दो कदम साथ मेरे आज चल दे
इन पावों को लडख़ड़ाने के लिए

Wishing you all a great day of poetry and a poetic weekend and life filed with love…….
