  • POEM: A Birth Day Wish by Ponniah Ganeshan (5/21/2012 6:33:00 AM)

    Ponniah, there are some really nice images in your poems and this is clearly your main strength. And I have looked through many of them.

    However, alas there has to be a 'however', you are sometimes let down by some strange English constructs. (Though I would never dare write in Tamil. If I was so reckless, I'm sure the result would be far, far worse.) For example the final verse of this poem might be better rendered:

    Yes, the seagull
    Still flying, flying beyond
    Not noticing the lonely boat
    Which is sailing, sailing away.

    I only say this because I think, with a little work, you could produce some really good poems. A poet will less talent I would not bother about commenting upon.
