Siva Kept Three Eyes Beautifully, O’god!


Coconut over the top of the coconut tree
growing with the water in the ground free
sucking with its root; for that also the Lord
Siva kept three eyes beautifully, O’God!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
This poem 'Siva kept three eyes beautifully, O’God! ' is a translation of a nice Tamil poem by Poet D.Venkatachalam, wondering the presence of three closed holes resembling eyes in the coconut.

நிலம் இரு நீரை வேரால் இழுத்து
வளர்ந்திடும் தென்னை மரத்தின் மீது
தேங்காய் அதற்கும் முக்கண் வைத்தார்
பாங்காய் பரமன் நமக்கு. - D.வெங்கடாசலம்.

பாங்காய் - அழகாய்

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
