641 : Tamil Poetry - Three Poles by S Vaidheeswaran

At a dizzy height,
A bird,
An illusion
Of touching the moon


"If the moon is so near,
Why not bring
A pinch of moon to me".

Mused the Earth.

"This bird
Keeps slamming
At the obstinate earth -
Is she blind?
Can't she see my cool face?"
Brooded the moon.

In between
The parrot
Knew but little
Except the flutter of its wings.

(From Tamil New Poetry, translated by Dr. KS Subramanian, a katha.org book)
