War field

A soldier in war field
Using both my weapons, 
For I have other soldiers facing defeat, 
For oblivious they were. 

Not only physically, 
But also psychologically, 
Am I in the war field
-I am prepared. 

Different are the wars,
Different are the forms of attacks
-I have to be careful, 
For a family I have back home. 

Many were prepared for war field, 
But only to find that psychologically they faced defeat, 
For not only physically,  but also psychologically are war fields.

Silent Honors

It is not in parades or days  		 
We find the fitting honors.		 
It is not in displays or ways 		 
We bring our veterans praise.		 

The highest honors silence knows;	 
In hearts and eyes and poses.		 
In hearts that burst with gratitude	 
And eyes where weeping flows.		 

In poses where the comrade stands	 
Stretched tall in firm salute.		 
They honor others with their hands	 
Without a word, stand resolute. 	 

In silence lift our veterans.		 
In honor, stop and remember when		 
A father, mother, son or daughter	 
Gave themselves for the brethren.	  	 

Silence comes and calls: “at ease”
And comforts loved ones lost.
We too find solace and reprieve
While heaven cares for these.

IN THE FIRED FURNACE OF CALI

     IN THE FIRED FURNACE OF CALI
     (APROPOS THE ANNUAL RUNNING OF FIRE AND MUD)

Roaring radiant raging waves of heat,
the charging beast, glowing red hot with anger,
devours all within its path; left over sable statutes
send streams of spiraling smoke sketching
grayish designs upon the hazy blue canvas above.   

Weary eyes reflect the yellow-orange-red glow
that only the rage of a Dante-like hell could bring.
The wretched earth once again lay hopelessly
on the remnant of her charred bed: awaiting
her steaming tears to wash away the ashes.

In the meanwhile mourners collect scorched
memories: telltale recollections of sacrifices
nature left upon her Vulcan altar.

Words

Words are strong 
Words are deep
They make you think
One simple word
Can change an opinion 
Where did words
get there power 
Why do words 
have so much contro

MEMORY



Poignant proof primes
Meek memoir mimes


Time tells taut tales
Seek succinct sale


Meet moments meek
Precious plots peek


Memory mulls
List loiters lull


Spacious space sighs
Crisp clumsy cry


Treasure tough times
Rapture reaps rhymes


Calm craft charms choice
Ply profound poise


Sense solemn strains
Prize precious pain

Try tender twirls


Mind matters meek
Sensuous sway seeks


Dream dazzles dance
Choose clever chance

Memory lane

Memory lane



As I walk down the memory lane,
plateaus of emotions whine and wane,
Grace on face stays
while smile deepens
and wrinkles sprinkle
the essence of pretence in time.

Pure play


Glimpse grace
Free face


Rich rounds
Grand grounds


Reap rest
Fine fest


Dig deep 
Kind keep


Dream dawn
Soul spawns

Mnemonic Devices: Rhyme and Alliteration in the THIRUKKURAL, Canto 4, K35

Mnemonic Devices: Rhyme and Alliteration in the THIRUKKURAL, a random example: Canto 4, K35 by T. Wignesan

alukkaaru avaavekuli innaacchol naangkum
ilukkaa iyanrathu aram (refined, shorn of connective particles)
The way of vileness, self-congratulatory aid, ire and foul-mouthing - these four attitudes will cause the charity-giver to slip from the natural path of virtue into ignominy. (Tr. T. Wignesan) 

I - Rhyme (ethukai: there are SIX kinds) in the Venba metre of classical Tamil poetry:
(a) Initial Rhyme (idaiyaasethukai): where the second letter/syllable of the first words in successive lines have to rhyme, e.g.
alukkaaru/ilukkaa
Here the syllable "lu" (with a macron underneath the "l" to distinguish it from two other "l"s in the Tamil alphabet) occurs in both the identical slots.
(b) End-Rhyme (iyappu): naankum/aram

II - Besides, two other forms of rhyme can also be found: 
a) thalaiyaasethukai: the entire first feet in the two lines are identical, even if and because "a" and "i" are phonetic equivalents (of the same genre):
b) moonraamelutthonrethukai: the third letters/syllables of the first words in both the lines are in consonance - "ka" and "ka".     

II- Alliteration (monai: here, too, there are SIX kinds):   
For this feature to be valid, it is enough that the first letters of two or more words be either the same or one of its class, i.e., their phonetic equivalents:
Here, 1) the first letters of the first and second words are "a" in the first line;
2) the first letters of the first and second words are "i" in the second line.
The above two examples of alliteration are known as "inaimonai", i.e., where two successive words are in alliteration.

Commentary: It's quite obvious the poet was writing at a time when widespread dissemination of his work was not available to him (and to others of his ilk), and so poetry having been the principal form of expression for the Tamils throughout the ages, they developed the art of making learning by rote as simple as possible. If you knew that a kural consisted of seven feet in two lines, and that the initial rhymes fell on the second letter/syllable of the first word in each line, and that alliteration was an adornment Tamil poets could not do without, not to mention the special character of the seventh foot (cf. previous posts on the Thirukkural), these features in themselves would be sufficient to aid constant and total recall.
