Horoscope is the most merciless judge.. which writes death sentences to many love stories even before they are born. One such shattered dream captured by the words of Kalai Kaadhalan in this poem. Jaadhagam – My 41st poem.. Check mate has an all new meaning today!

Image from here.


விண்மீன்கள் விளையாட.. இடம் ஒன்று.. இதுதானோ?
ஜோசியனே.. ஜோசியனே.. உன் பகடை.. நான்தானோ?

கட்டத்தின் சிறையில் வைத்த.. திட்டமோ புரியவில்லை..
என் விழியில் நீர் கசிய.. சிரிக்கவோ முடியவில்லை..

மீண்டும் முதல் கட்டம்!

Literal translation in English:

Is this the only play ground for the stars to play..
Match maker.. Match maker.. Am I the dice in your hand..

I dont understand your purpose of jailing me in squares..
I am unable to don my regular smile.. as tear oozes out of my eyes…

Back to “SQUARE” one.

English script is here:

Vinmeengal viLaiyaada.. idam ondru.. idhu dhaano?
Josiyanae.. Josiyanae.. Un pagadai.. naan dhaano?

Kattathin sirayil vaiththa.. thittamo puriyavillai..
En vizhiyil neer kasiya.. serikkavo mudiyavillai..

Meendum mudhal kattam!

Hope you enjoyed this poem. Please find my other poems here.

    A nice one…. However technologically advaced our world becomes, we will not let go of our tradition.. Jadagam is one like that.. When we have any bad luck we refer and consult the match maker. No one is willing to accept their failures.. but success story is different.
    Good one.. Keep it coming.

    Hi Sundar! (I can see real Azhagu in your writings. Every kattam (phase) in the kaalam (one’s life time) is unique. Sometimes, It is difficult to understand what influences one’s mind – consequently his actions. I am seeing a romantic phase in your life – romance with every art – a great gift. Keep it up and let others also enjoy thru your poetic expressions.

    Rightly said!

    We have kept the Creator locked in our heart.

    Once our hearts are opened and allow him what he wants out of us…

    Then these boxes would not be sufficent.
