Here is the Sunday Story Post No 2313 based on a communication received from my great friend from Spain Mr. Germain on Ithaka poems..
Sacred India that is Bharath-our holy Motherland- land of erudite scholars in all our languages- Prose and Verse, dramas all are graced by the Gods of learning. Great Ithihasas -Ramayana and Mahabaratha are indeed world admired ones. Not only Indian writers have been graced and writers from other parts of the world are also ibspired and graced. ITHIKASAS and now ITHAKAS!!!! Mr Germain of Spain refers to his inspiration from India where he used to come, spend quite some time, write and gets back to Spain. We are indeed proud of his statement in this regard.
Quite a few of his Ithaka poems have been published with translation into Tamil by me and TODAY IT IS ITHAKA POEM 672.
On the personal literary front very happy developments have taken place which I would like to share with you all. Thanks to CORONA all the Meets, Discussions and so on are all gone online wirh the help of all powerful ZOOM! Twice or thrice in a week all meet and discuss through Zoom! Birds of the same feather flock together is a well known statement of course of fact! In that way, I got a great friend in Mr.Germain and all my ITHAKA posts are prompted by him!.
My dear friend,
For the kind of rather philosophical poems I write, I need tranquility. I therefore used to go to a silent place abroad, in fact, two of my most popular poetry collections, The Road and In the Stream of Time, Meditations in the Himalayas have been written in India.
Since I could not travel abroad because of the corona virus I did not write any new poem since last March because traveling abroad is not allowed. But recently I tried, before switching on my pc in the morning, to write something. Two of the new poems I have sent to friends were translated by them right away. Since I received the translations already and lack time at the moment , I selected those two poems as Ithaca 672. I hope you and your readers will enjoy them.

It dawns… the sun rises out of nowhere, ignites what only apparently comes from afar though it is near and within us— the light.
