' Will' Of Love

Your name is home of love;
The porch greets
With Jasmine fragrance ;
My thirst is trapped within
A tender coconut tree;
Dreams are painted around the shelves
And freeze in ornate toys,
My taste possesses warmth
From the stove in the kitchen.
The darkness and loneliness
Shared not only in bed
But Counting the stars too.
I could touch the
Spilling water from the well.
Despite all,
The WILL of the house is
Not with me


In Tamil- Mazhaippen-Phazhani Bharathi

    the first line and the last two lines tell the story written, of a love found and a love lost.
    well written! thanks for sharing.

    a delight of honest love conquer the heart of each life....so beautiful to
    hold on, the glittering star that to love is a will to accept, the wisdom of
    uncertainties of life....God bless you my friend...a 10 +++++

    I liked the theme of your poem but like all translations it loses something of the original

    It was an alright poem.

    I liked reading it but I am personally mor of a fan of longer readings.

    Hope you will take a look at what I have wrote as well.

    Keep writing

    Very well written. It is a very lonely poem searching for the real meaning of home. May you one day find the home of your dreams.

    talk about life in the form of poem
    I can see his poem his childhood
    and your memories...
    longing mother
    the presence of the wife
    some dreams...
    and loneliness

    katuu :)

    I like the way you describe everything in your poem but it leaves me wanting the full story...a conclusion perhaps
