Nayanathara's poems come straight from the heart and are marked by deep sympathy for all those who suffer: from the mythical Vaidehi to the salt-maker and the water-wife who slave for others and are abandoned to their dark fate. But she also is philosophical enough to understand someone like the Buddha whose dedication to a larger cause had compelled him to give up the comforts of home. She has the basic qualities of a poet and I am sure will soon master the form.

I am a mere pre-verse in the lyrics; the song is yours,
I am a mere bend in the road; the pathway is yours,
I am a mere cloud that flits aimlessly; the sky is yours,
I am a mere comma behind the word; the sentence is yours,
So dont let me stop you from writing that song,
From finishing that journey, from touching the sky.
For I am a mere chapter in the novel,
The story has always been yours.

Experience rain showers of romance and delight,
Penned down on my days too bright.
Magic translated in words to inspire,
Encouraging you to fulfill your desires.
Beware of thorny tones of pain,
Pulled in from my memory lane.
They’ll show the world what it took,
To make me a poet and fill a book.

fecundity and yuletide. everything is other
people's business. that i've kept you from
