Walking on the edge of a river-19

English Translation – Swathi Sreepada

Telugu original written by – Dr.C.Bhavani Devi

19. A kitchen poem

To write a poem
Caught in the kitchen cabinet
Struggled and jumped
On the stove and committed suicide

When doing Puri
Crushed between two hands
To my inability to hold the pen
The things that hid the faces,
When cutting the vegetables
When making a string of flowers
In the strong odors of salt and spices
Vanished without even remaining in imagination

Wriggling with making Sambar
Locking up the creativity
Thinking the conclusion of the poem
In the mind of Kavitha as a poem in the mind of Kavitha
When taking out a tomato from the fridge
A beautiful word slithered
Fell in the curd and had been frozen

Always , day and night
Like this only
To write a full poem heartily
It always remains incomplete
