ITHACA 647 Men, Maria Nivea Zagarella, Sicily

Men

The resigned sea gives back
the dead,
excessive straw,
useless,
upon this earth.

Crazy and lost
the desperate adults
depart,
the innocent little ones
can do nothing,
their little hands
frozen by the cold night
that brings them death.

Murderous men
against their own flesh,
murderous against the earth
that breast fed them since birth.

The sea no longer has
enough straw baskets
to collect drop after drop,
woes and laments
of these drowning bodies

LONELY GOOD BYE/HOPE-ITHAKA 645.

LONELY GOODBYE

for those who, wherever, have to die lonely
Chilly the room
the white walls
audible only
the echo of loneliness.
Not a tender word anymore
no warm embrace
just the time,
a leaking tap,
ticking.

None knocking at the door
nobody you expect,
no one, except death.
***

HOPE

Since many months no rain
they suffer
but still they are green
because without hope
neither they can live
─ the trees.

தனியான  விடைகொடுத்தல்

எங்கிருந்தாலும் தனியாக இறப்பவர்களுக்கு
அறையில் குளிர்
வெள்ளைச் சுவர்கள்
தனிமையின் எதிரொலியைக்
கேட்க மட்டுமே முடியும்
மீண்டும் கனிவான சொற்கள் இல்லை
வெது வெதுப்பான தழுவல் இல்லை
நேரம் மாத்திரம்,
கசியும் குழாய்
டிக் என ஒலிக்கிறது
யாரும் வீட்டுக் கதவைத் தட்டவில்லை
யாரையும் நீங்கள் எதிர்பார்க்க வில்லை
யாரும் இல்லை சாவைத்தவிற!

***

நம்பிக்கை

பல மாதங்களாக மழை இல்லை
அவைகள் வருந்துகின்றன
இருப்பினும்  அவை பச்சையாக உள்ளன
ஏனெனில் நம்பிக்கை இன்றி
வாழவும் முடியாது.
─ மரங்கள்..

August 6th- HIROSHIMA DAY.

Hiroshima Day 2020 — Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service

Several days in the history of the world remain green in all
And one such is today the SIXTH AUGUST! On this day in Nineteen Forty
Five most atrocious  the U.S. atomic bomb attack on the people of
Hiroshima  and the second attack on the city of Nagasaki on August ninth
Killed and wounded hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting men, women,
And children in a horrible blast of fire and radiation, and deadly fallout.

In years that followed, those who survived—the hibakusha—suffered from
Trauma of the experience and from the long-term effects of their exposure
To radiation from the weapons.  United States need not have dropped bombs
To avoid  invasion of Japan and bring an end to World War Two..
President Harry Truman  chose to authorize the use of the atomic bombs in Part to further the U.S. government’s postwar geostrategic aims.!

WE SHALL MEET . . .

We shall meet after the end of world, you told me

உலகத்தின் இறுதிக்குப் பிறகு நாம் சந்திப்போம், நீங்கள் என்னிடம் கூறினீர்கள்
When we’ll be just you and me, sunrise and sunset.

அப்பொழுது நாம் சாதாரண நீங்களும் நானுமாக இருப்போம்
கதிரவன் உதயம்  மறைதல் போல.
We shall meet after the end of the world, precisely

உலகின் இறுதிக்குப் பிறகு நாம் சந்திப்போம், சரியாக
When we’ll be just we two, abyss clamoring abysses.

ஆழமான  பள்ளம், ஆழமான பள்ளங்கள் என ஆரவாரம் செய்யும்
We shall meet when all things will pass through fire

எல்லாமும்  நெருப்பின் ஊடே கடந்தபின் நாம் சந்திப்போம்
And we’ll be ashes or we’ll be no more

நாம் கருகிச் சாம்பலாகி, இருக்கவே மாட்டோம்
We shall meet again when everything makes sense

நாம் மீண்டும் சந்திப்போம், எல்லாமே புரியும்
Without understanding why I was what I was.

நான் எதற்கு, நான் என்ன என்பதை அறிந்து கொள்ளாமலேயே!

OPEN WELLS CRY OUT

Open Wells Cry Out- Oh! My dear people blame us not for your failure
Faithfully we have been serving since we were born supplying water
Unfortunate Sujit Wilson had to rest in peace in our lap
As you were not careful to hold the child by his hands as he left home.

Parents to ensure some elderly person goes with the child out.
Poor young child knows not what is safe and what is unsafe while straying out
When two tragedies have struck, the world blames us as if we are the culprits
Unwary children can get hurt by a raging fire, and a straying animal!

The lesson to be learnt is the elders to be careful in handling
Their beloved children beforehand and not blaming others later
Keep us open or closed, one can fall and die-destiny plays its role.
Yet, in us lies intelligence and wisdom to be careful and cautious.
