I was zipping past the streets of Phoenix, changing the FM stations at regular intervals. And, 99.9 soft rock started playing the ever melodious “There she goes, There she goes again”, by ‘Sixpence None The Richer’. That band is very artistic and creative. Alas, they split. Anyway, I am digressing here. I love that song and I also know that it is one of her all time favorites. I couldn’t help but think of one of my poems.


ಮೌನ ತಬ್ಬಿದ ಕಡಲ ತಡಿಯಿದೆ
ಹರೆಯದಿಳೆಗೆ ಹಸಿರು ಬಳೆಯಿದೆ
ರಸಿಕ ಜೀವಕೆ ಮತ್ತ ಬರಿಸುವ
ಚಿತ್ತ ಚಂಚಲೆ ಎಲ್ಲಿಹೆ ?

ರವಿಗೆ ಉಷೆಯಲಿ ಸ್ವರ್ಗ ಸುಖವಿದೆ
ಚಂದಿರಗೊ ತಾರೆಯರ ಜೊತೆಯಿದೆ
ಮದನನಾಟಕೆ ಪದವ ಹಾಡುವ
ಸರಸಿ ಬಾರೆಯ ಇಲ್ಲಿಗೆ ?

ಬದುಕು ಬಯಸುವ ಸಿರಿಯ ಸೊಗವಿದೆ
ಮನಸಿನಾಳದಿ ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಹದವಿದೆ
ಪ್ರೇಮದುಲ್ಕೆಗೆ ತಂಪನೆರೆಯುವ
ಸಂಚ ಮರೆತಿಹೆ ಏತಕೆ ?

ಬೆಚ್ಚಗಿನ ಕಲ್ಪನೆಗೆ ಮುದವಿದೆ
ಯೌವ್ವನದ ಬಿಸಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಹುರುಪಿದೆ
ಕನಸ ಕನ್ಯೆಯೆ ಸ್ಪರ್ಷ ಭಾಷೆಗೆ
ಕವಿಯ ಮಿಡಿತವು ಸಾಲದೆ ?

    ds, beautiful!! moon and the stars, i think they always enhance the other’s effect. a night sky is complete only when a moon is accompanied by twinkling stars.

    verses on love, shoot!! i guess we are used to them!! 😀

  5. Wow!!

    I completely agree with you when you say “ಕನಸ ಕನ್ಯೆಯೆ ಸ್ಪರ್ಷ ಭಾಷೆಗೆ
    ಕವಿಯ ಮಿಡಿತವು ಸಾಲದೆ ?”… Yes, its poets(I mean u people) who enhance a language’s reach.

    Like moon-stars and ravi-ushe, language-poets make a grand pair.

    ’ಹರಿವ ಲಹರಿ’ ಕರೆದುಕೊಂಡು ಬಂತು.
    ಚೆಲುವಾದ ಕವನ.
    ಹರೆಯದಿಳೆಗೆ ಹಸಿರು ಬಳೆಯಿದೆ – ಸೊಗಸಾದ ಕಲ್ಪನೆ.

    @ Bachodi:
    Thanks, I like the poets of the world, a lot.

    @ Mouna:
    Don’t watch too many movies…lol. True, moon without stars is definitely not beautiful.

    @ RK:
    Thank you. Glad you like it.

    @ DG:
    Thanks. illa guru muMgAru maLe nODakke AgalE illa.

    @ Srik:
    True, I will change your take a little and say that a writer-language is a ncie pair. He or she need not be a poet. But, romance is usually associated with a poet. Thanks, I will try and post more poems.

    @ Poornima:
    Welcome to my blog and thank you for the good words. You write good poems too 😉

    @ Vijay:
    Thanks man!!!

    @ Veena:
    Come on, not you. I didn’t think it was all that ahrd, especially for people like you who have such good hold on the language. Read again 🙂
