4 கலாப்ரியா கவிதைகள் - 4 Poems of Kalapria

தூண்டில் மீனின்
துடிப்புகளைப் பாடுவதற்காய்
மட்டுமே நான்
ஆற்றோரம் காத்திருக்கிறேன்
அரை நிர்வாணிகளுக்காயில்லை
 
It's only
to voice the struggles
of hooked fish,
I wait in river banks
Not for half naked women. 
 
-------------------------------------------
 
ஒப்பனைகளை
அழித்துவிட்டு
என்னுடைய 
நாடகத்தை
நானே 
என்று பார்க்க
 
Removing 
the greasepaint 
to see my play 
myself, 
when's the day?
 
-------------------------------------------
பயணம்
 
கூட்டிலிருந்து
தவறி விழுந்த
குஞ்சுப்பறவை
தாயைப்போலவே 
தானும் பறப்பதாய்
நினைத்தது.
தரையில் மோதிச்சாகும்வரை.
 
Travel
 
The baby bird
that fell out
of its nest
thought 
it flew
just like its mom.
Till crashing dead on the floor. 

------------------------------------------- 
 விதி
 
அந்திக்கருக்கலில்
இந்தத்திசை தவறிய
பெண்பறவை
தன் கூட்டுக்காய்
அலைமோதிக் கரைகிறது.
எனக்கதன் கூடும் தெரியும்
குஞ்சும் தெரியும்
இருந்தும்
எனக்கதன்
பாஷை தெரியவில்லை.

Fate
 
In dark sundown,
this lost
female bird,
in search of its nest,
cries desperately.
I know its nest,
its nestlings,
But 
its language,
I don't know.
