ശിലയും ശില്പ്പവും

By | August 15, 2016

ഒരു വാക്കിലുമുരുകാത്ത

ശിലയാവാനാശിച്ചു ഞാന്‍

ഒരു നോക്കിലുമലിയാത്ത

ശില്പ്പമാവാനോര്‍ത്തു ഞാന്‍.

ഓരോ ശിലയിലുമാത്മാവു കണ്ട

നാളൊരു ശില്പ്പിയായി ഞാന്‍.

ശിലയാവാന്‍ കൊതിച്ചു ഞാന്‍

ശില്പ്പമാവാന്‍ കൊതിച്ചു ഞാന്‍

ശിലയില്‍ ശില്പ്പം പണിയുമൊരു

കല്‍മണ്ഡപത്തിന്‍ ശില്പ്പിയായി ഞാന്‍.

        (A literal translation)

        I wanted to be like that stone that does not melt under words …
        I wanted to be that sculpture that does not melt under a gaze ..

        I became that sculptor who saw a soul in every stone (I carved)

        I dreamt of becoming a stone
        I dreamt of becoming a sculpture
        However, I ended up being a scultpor who created sculptures out of stones

    Happy Independence day Akhila. But I am unable to understand the language. Even though I know Telugu, I find no link in between these two languages.

    Have a great week ahead. 🙂

    I wanted to be

    A stone with a soul
    A sculpture with a heart

    And I became the sculptor …
    The sculptor who carved out soulful sculptures from soulful stones

    I became the sculptor who breathed life into stone

    (The picture and the post has changes in the shilpi part alle)

        I never wanted to be a stone,
        a stone that melts for
        the magical spells of love,
        I wanted to be the
        Koh -i- Noor
        the queen of diamonds.

        I wanted to be a sculpture
        that withstands the gaze
        of the most charming eyes,
        I wanted to be the
        David of Michael Angelo.

        I wanted to be a painting
        that stays mysterious
        for centuries,
        I wanted to be the
        Mona Lisa of Leonardo.

        I wanted to be a diamond
        I wanted to be a sculpture,
        I wanted to be a painting,
        I wanted to be a masterpiece.

        In the end..
        with all those dreams in the heart
        life made me a sculptor,
        a sculptor who gives life to the stones I carve

    ഒരു യഥാർത്ഥ ശില്പിക്കു മാത്രമേ ഇത്തരം കാവ്യ ശില്പങ്ങൾ കൊത്താൻ കഴിയൂ ! മനോഹരം.
