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:
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?
