Smoking is allowed here

"The smoker smokes, through smoke
He indulges smoky speculations.

Which keeps his thinking among the smoke;
The smoker smokes, through smoke

For smoking pleases him greatly,
Insofar as it is his intention.

The smoker smokes, through smoke
He indulges smoky speculations."

(D. Wyatt in The smoker smokes)

My pâtisserie is unfortunately closed


“Treats and sweets and tortes and cakes
Cherries, berries, chocolate flakes
My firm resolutions break
Goodness, oh, for goodness sake!”

The poetry of the theater of renovation

"J’ai bâti dans ma fantaisie
Un théâtre aux décors divers:
- Magiques palais, grands bois verts 
Pour y jouer ma poésie."

(Ch. Cross in Sonnet)

No company allowed, just letters

“Sign on the window says “Lonely”
Sign on the door said “No Company Allowed”
Sign on the street says “Y’ Don’t Own Me””

Who sits on the Red Lotus flower?

“The Goddess of Wealth
…who sits on the Red Lotus flower

offers the fair flow of water,
…affluent shadow,

affluence of paddy harvest,
…name and fame,

huge prosperity,
…lots of wealth and property;

she also always offers longevity
…for those who are not deceptive and trickery!”

(V.K. Kanniappan translation from Tamil Nalvazhi)
