Silence, the voiceless voice -
it speaks volumes
it triggers a strong
it narrates a long
silence soothes the heat
it makes mild a hot wind
and warms a late cold
but not always..
sometimes it just
A LOVE LETTER
my beloved one,
to be sure
since the very beginning
and it is sweet
to be part
of the same
i want it,
i need it
i'll try to
(This poem was inspired by a letter written by Simone de Beauvoir (1909 - 1986) to her lover, Nelsen Algren)

Mizo mipa poem ka chhiar ve tawh ah chuan nalh ka tih pawl tak! Most mizo men use such big words we stumble all over them, and the beauty is lost in translation.ReplyDelete
Aw.P-a hi a hawl kim fu ania, TS Khupchong.ReplyDelete
diary, I'm really glad you brought this up. The problem with the poetry most Mizo men write is that they use archaic poetic diction (poetic diction simply means language used in poetry). And as long as they insist on using "tawng upa" in poetry, Mizo poetry is not going to grow or develop in any way, and all translations will have to stay with outmoded, obsolete Victorianisms such as behold, yonder etc. Who uses words like that anymore today?! And that's the reason you don't see such poems on my blog!
