Keep At It! - Poem by Daniel Trevelyn Joseph

Light of the Kuthu Vilaku
From Experimental Stage
In NCPA throws up features
Of young girls and old couples
Watching concentrated Nangiar Koothu.

People look beautiful in semi-dark
Their silent passion to encourage dance
This International Dance week,
Makes them special, if you watch
You can see the dances on their pupils, shining.

Arundhathi, tall and dignified
Just returned from China
Says, “Two thirds of her still in China! ”
Begins the performance with her
Deliberate and pleasant address.

Honestly I did not followed what followed!
Outside, I had read the two-page note
About fire-test of Sita, source Raghuvamsha
Of Kalidasa the Sanskrit poet foremost:
Maybe the discussion should precede dance.

The music of percussion from two pots
Was from A to Z, the full range,
The sounds tugged at my heart
From the two men, naked above waist
In true Malayali male style.
