Our 2 to represent the Block for July IBPC 2012:

#1 Post by Michael (MV) » 28 Jun 2012, 18:45

The Block editors will select 1 poem, and I, MV, will select the other to go to IBPC.

Note instructions:

Please direct selected poems plus all the necessary info as delineated below into this thread. This includes, if the need be, arranging substitutes in regards to your choices.

When we have channeled all the required info to here in this thread, MV will then forward the 2 poems and information to the finals.

As usual, let's aim to accomplish this by the 1st of the month.


1/ MV's choice:



2/ Editor's choice:


To each of the 2:

Please post ALL the required info in this thread ASAP.

Your permission (or decline).

If accepting,
then together with your permission in this thread
please supply in full these 3 necessary/standard details:

1/ Statement confirming that the poem is not published,

and that you do not have a poem already representing another house in this month's IBPC.

Please note here: If you have already decided/committed to represent for another board, please indicate here in this thread that you already have a poem going to the IBPC this time. The rule is: one poem per poet per monthly. Let us know here ASAP, so a substitute can be arranged. It is not necessary to indicate the poem or house. IBPC Official Rules: http://webdelsol.com/IBPC/rules.html

2/ your name & current e-mail addy.

3/ the poem as you would like it forwarded.


Thank you,

Remaining very pre-occupied on the homefront.

I'm recommending Siva's poem Kodaikanal.

PMing Siva now.

Hope the 4th was a wonderful blast for all

The poem ' Kodaikanal' was written by me and it has not been published anywhere.Please accept the version given below.My e-mail address is sivakamivelliangiri@gmail.com. And thank you for the nomination.

Kodaikanal

The observatory draws tourists
who come to see dark spots in the sun.

Here they talk ‘climate.’ Space is a snapshot,
a museum of telescopes and explanatory pictures.
Each dark spot is bigger in size than the earth.

Favorable changes might happen, more rains,
unusual, unseasonal blooming of the Kurunchi flowers.

At the house the flowers are the same pastel shades
of intermingled bright hues. Same as when
my half sari twined around the oars of a boat.

Turnips, carrots, bush beans and herbs
still thrive in the backyard. Every summer
we pretend three or four days in a hill station
can reduce the heat of our working days.

Now I search the meaning of 'Manorama'
Krishna as the full filler of Eternal Bliss
in these hills.

SivaRamanathan
