Tongueless Leaf

Poem by: Vaidheeswaran

Translated from Tamil by: Latha Ramakrishnan

The mind that has perceived the Leaf
before the world
invented Language
In what wavelength or tongue
would it have mused over it?
It is Impossible to know!

In my mind
that covers and shrouds verse
with numerous tongues
every day
will there appear
a way to pluck and bring that
tongueless Leaf
within my time?
