Incessant Rain [Thoramazha]


[ Poem ]
The night when OMMUKULUSU died,
Mom stood alone in the rain; incessant rain.
Kith, kin and everybody had gone
Leaving her alone, Lone courtyard.
Chairs, gaslight, tarpaulins hired for
Everything returned.
Darkness, darkness looming everywhere,
Alone her magnolia illumines.
The oil lamp smears smoke in the tears of her mom,
Alone her magnolia illumines.
KURUNJI her pet cat smells the pairs of her slippers
And leave herself in silence.
The shabby little clothes of ‘KULSU' hanging in backyard
Fluttering in the breeze loiters
And fly indifferently to the branches.
The night when OMMUKULUSU died,
Mom stood alone in the rain; incessant rain.
Sudden rush of heavy down pour
She ran back home, seeking something
Snatching half broken umbrella, ‘OMMU' often resents
She ran in the rain to the graveyard
Spread umbrella over the wet tomb.
The night her 'KULUSU' gone, it was raining
Still pouring down incessantly.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
