Kalai – My first verse in tamil

22 May 2010 7 Comments

Hi Readers,

This is my first attempt to capture my love of art in tamil.. Came out in a chat conversation with my cousin.. πŸ™‚

Kalai

Kalaikkul Kalai.. (There is an art within an art)
Ennakul oru alai.. (There is a wave within me)
Rasanaiyill payudhe.. en manam.. (which splashes in appreciation)
kangalkku tharugudhe.. oru poongavanum πŸ™‚ (while giving an eye.. a wonderful creation)

So once again.. only the tamil version
Kalaikkul Kalai..
Ennakul Oru Alai..
Rasanaiyil Payudhe.. En Manam..
Kangalkku Tharugudhe.. Oru poongavanum

Update:

Some context to this poem…

Of late I have been sketching drawings of violin.. dance etc.. (yet to be uploaded).. I appreciate some other forms of art.. which I have always aspired to learn.. and through pencil sketches.. I am able  give some kind of a reality to my dreams.. Hence I wrote this short verse..

Kalaikkul Kalai..

There is an art within an art.. There is violin in the sketch.. dance in the sketch.. there is another form of art in my sketch..

Ennakul oru alai..
There is a wave within me.. A surge of energy within me.. An energy which came from my love for the art..
Rasanaiyill payudhe.. en manam..
This wave of energy is splashing again in appreciation of the art.. the art which i couldnt learn full..
kangalkku tharugudhe.. oru poongavanum πŸ™‚
In the process.. I hope to give an art piece.. a pencil sketch.. a wonderful creation.. like a garden with rich fruits & flowers.. a pleasure to the eyes of the beholder πŸ™‚
