1. From the Embryo of poetry
Gave meaning to anguishes
accumulated each of the word
for every alphabet
a day became years of duodecimal
Ages to seek
a line emerges
Pullulates bit of stratum
of deep struck grief
line adds to line
corpus nous crop up contrivance
pilus n pore showers
delight from soul
under the encumbrance of anguishes
in a moment of emancipation
from the embryo of poetry
it is my rebirth
Embryo - womb
Duodecimal - term used for twelve.
Pullulates - cracks
Corpus - body
Nous - mind
2. I'm Human
with your god
your fear of fraud
doesn't bothers me
and handed him
charges of destiny
My fist contains
Warmth, Air, Water
Power of centuries
are beneath my feet
Oceans and Mountains
pave up ways
for the progress
is my conation
wisdom and device
Human I am
3. Trees should ...
To the rumours of whirlwinds
trees should not succumb,
should restrict branches from mutual abrasiveness
without reason should not flow sparks
should not invite forest fire...
Trees must have regards for forest
should give attention towards roots
as they are supplier of zest of life
tie hand in hand to exalt
for long life of trees
fighting underground stones
Trees should recollect themselves for moment
to strengthen their foundation
to ignore the rumours of whirlwinds
4. Riot spreads on
Riot has no hands nor legs
then also it spreads... scattered ...
like oily conceit spreads on water
riots rides on rumours...
Riot gets printed in Newspapers
in coloumns to coloumns, pages to pages and as cover stories.
with its assistance televisions sensational serials become spectacular.
The TRP of fourth coloumn of democracy rises due to riots.
Riot never evanesces
in darken side of the fallen wall
nor it remains in the empty drum of an asphalt
riots never hide in back of high mountains or in deep bottom of well
Riot slowly raises its head
from saffron room of vermilion coated stone.
In the broken grave
under the shade of an ancient old tree
riot lives on alert under the torn green sheet.
Entangled in thorny crown
riot makes fun of whelming Jesus Christ.
Sometimes by guiding finger of Babasaheb
riot annoy the panchsheel of Buddha.
from air-conditioner rooms of five starred heightened buildings
watches every road and square of the city
on slums it is extra compassionate.
Official guns celebrate festivals of riot
police is free to impose curfew
and can take revenge of every assaults of their seniors on the occasion of riot.
Due to blessings of riot
wealthy people can take somewhat leisure from shopping rushes
hearth of indigents gets deserving interval.
Riot fertilizes brains of intellectuals
analysis and discussions get emphasized
Cameramen whose brain turned into mud and heart into coal make films of riot;
but then nobody could trace its address
riot spreads on Helter-Skelter ...
5. I swear
Seeing sludge seated on humanity
device takes shape in me ... I swear ...
Ages passed in deception in name of grief
exploit every moment of delight with prudence ... I swear ...
Applied enough of Abir-Buka* and frayed
then also cannot sense basis of abstract ... I swear ...
Your negation made me suffer and drive in
acceptance seems as fishing rod ... I swear ...
In summer O sun your pride is inoperable
you don't know the heat of caste ... I swear ...
Descendent Nympholept is erected manger
Thirsty anxious waiting on brink ... I swear ...
Hey! ocean control your proud tides there
here valley in stomach is abysmal ... I swear ...
* Abir-Buka is scented powder used for festive and religious purpose in rural India.
6. Memory Loss
Contracitive are our flush brain
heart also squeezed
we have forgotten who Buddha was
who where from was Tukya*?
Who was crucified?
Who drank poison hemlock?
For universal truth
who left his motherland?
Ruby, pearl, gold, money
overall authority is truth for us
How to remember Mahavir
and make friendship with Kabir?
Our own wormy life
eat, breed and to die
needs so stretch hand
and start begging
*Sant Tukaram (17th Century Marathi poet who deeply and widely influenced marathi literary culture.)
All the poems Translated by Pushpendra Falgun from Marathi.
