A money-order to Tamil Nadu

The software to write and read
Inside his cranium not installed.
Before me, his Tamil heart placed,
Which through Malayalam saw I,
As if in a mist; as pleaded,
The money-order form I filled
For the laborer came state border crossed.
His cell phone had chirped incessantly,
And he borrowed shamelessly.
A Desdemona, or a Lady Macbeth? Mind’s vacuum it dropped.


Rupees bring smile on her lips,
Beyond the sight behold I,
As the sun appears
Out of dark clouds.


(Tamil Nadu  is a neighbouring state of Kerala state in India.
Tamil is spoken in Tamil Nadu . Malayalam is  spoken in Kerala.
These two languages are closely related.)

    Again you bring your own reality as a gift of primatic color to the western eye and mind, [Mind’s vacuum it dropped..is a bit confusing?] I would suggest you write a bit more for the flavor of old India is beginning to mix nicely in a refreshing way with the lingo of modern technology! Congrad's on your win. Light & Love

    Did you provide work for this man, Fabiyas? If so, it was a very kind gesture. Here in the states jobs are hard to find and people are "borrowing shamelessly." Thank you for sharing some of your culture with us. Enjoyed reading your well penned poem. Love and blessings, Carolyn
