South Indian Poet Syam Sudhakar

Updated: Dec 11, 2019




Award-winning poet Syam Sudhakar has sent us a new cache of his poems and we're pleased to share one with our readers.


Following the recent widespread flooding in Kerala, it's helpful to note the vibrant cultural changes always moving apace in a country where each 'next generation' outstrips the last in overcoming countless hardships. Here's a sample of Sudhakar's current work:


The Silent

Is it necessary that all the silent are calm?

An eye-like lake

a bare pregnant hill

a crane that flies towards the desert

stretching its lean legs behind

the fingers of a sleeping prostitute

the lantern that the night left among clouds

How silent they are.

Yet are they calm?
