Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Lotus Flower Blooms While Seeing The Sun!

Since the face which blooms
while seeing the sun-like bright face

of her husband wilt and shrink by seeing
the moon-like face of the stranger,

does the face of the chaste wives
resemble the lotus flower?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem 'Lotus flower blooms while seeing the sun! ' is a translation of a poem of Poet Mayuram Vedhanayakam Pillai.

மனைவியின் முகத்தாமரை கணவன் முகம் எதிருற மலரும்!

கதிரவ னனையதங் கணவ ரேர்முகம்
எதிருற மலருமற் றேதி லார்முக
மதியநோக் கிடவிதழ் வாடிக் கூம்புமால்
சதியர்வாண் முகமெனுஞ் சலசப் பூவரோ.17

- மாயூரம் வேதநாயகம் பிள்ளை பாடல்
