Hi Ms. Marie,
Though I do not have a poem for you,
may I suggest that you look for a
Tamil poet called Mahakavi, from Sri Lanka.
The interesting aspect is, he has written
a lot of limericks in tamil
hope this helps
Best regards and good luck for your project,

Yes I would like to contribute. But please let me know the theme and wether it should restrict itself to some theme within India?

A Heart’s Love Poetry
I sailed on heart’s boat scheduled to make several stops
Along the several coasts
I encountered head winds
Which made sailing difficult to keep the boat on course
I believe to be in trouble
The rough sailing was to lose the cargo injury and death
Then your light wind began blowing from the north
It looked like a perfect day for the trip
I put my anchor to sailed close to your shore
I fell in love with you
When you didn’t think of me
As you were patient and passive.
Like an ordinary weak human being
I chased you to bus stop market park street college & lanes
One day I notice blush on your cheeks
A shyness in your looks
As your green beautiful eyes met mine eyes.
Every morning I wanted to catch your glowing glimpse
Peeping through the bus window
Your youthful signs were visible on limbs
I wanted to hold your hand to fondle your fingers
To cares your lock of hair
Through the bus window you started to show your back
You started to steal a glance at me
You started to show beautiful arms, bare shoulders proudly.
One day I was walking along the beach beside the lake
You were out in a boat fishing with a small net
I asked how to fish for your soul
You replied ‘Take cares don’t do your good deeds publicly’
You have entered my soul by ringing my heart bells
My dark and lonely soul enlightened with your presence
I felt an element of dreamy softness in your lovely eyes
My desires unveil themselves
As I fell in love with the silent nights
OH! The miracle at last we found
A mountain we could climb
A see we could watch. You and I were growing together
With trembling hands, singing hearts, rubbing cheeks making magic
Filling our hearts with love & love.
You never believe in building a house without a foundation
You were known when the floods sweep down against that house
It may crumbles into a heap of ruins
You wanted to build a house on a strong foundation
Laid upon the underlying rocks, and
When the flood waters rise and break against the house
It will stand affirm because you have strongly built the same.
Then all of sudden you opened your first ever heart window
I kissed you a lot to cover your spotless and blank face
By the marks of my lips and fingers
The moment of bliss, I remember you shut your eyes
I looked at your lips to suck it.
I loved you; you loved me, we always talked about love
I wondered how to get an image to describe
Your beauty, your charm. You were rare. You were unique.
It was a lovely moonlight of Jan evening
You came late at nine o’clock in silvery dress
We dined alone. Do you remember that delightful bike drive?
So engrossed in one another, you didn’t notice lost your hairpin,
Until your hair came tumbles down.
It was 5th June we were sitting in a city park iron bench
Your scattered locks of hairs brushed my cheeks and eyes
I kissed a lot and dissolved all my breaths in your tiny mouth
With a deep crossed smile you fired brightly’ are you a mad”.
I wish to open my ribs to show you your imprint
In the very core of my heart my heart was to drawn you close to me
I wanted to go beyond limits but you allowed another long kiss
Our lips met like magnet and steel
It only kinder my desires like the flame and more fuel put in fire
I wanted to open my wings on your chest
I wanted to fly in blue sky misguided in planets.
That wonderful day, the air and moon were on their way
When I decided to reach in deep of our LOVE
You protested and cried in surrendering the unsuspected secret
“NO’’’’’ DON’T PLEASE on your shivering lips not enough
To hold my actions,
It was miraculous that we breathed together
Your red face became pink later yellow and pale
On your way back you were carrying a dead cheering heart.
Deep feelings wet emotions for a lost of a gem.
We have found the origin of flaming volcano
That rainy august evening or was it late afternoon,
Holding hand, rubbing cheeks, lovely kissing and looking sky
My body was for another share of you
Our love making crossing rivers climbing mountains touching sky
You become an earth it becomes green in your breasts
I become sky and had clouds in my chest
Both of us waited for showers and it rained heavily.
You were always afraid of heights no climbing to get back down
I always wanted to climb the top with no fear of getting down
We were hanging in the air feeling vibration of our bodies.
DARK: DARK of our nights not a lamp in the room
Only joyous bells happy voices like a newly bridegroom & bride
The smoke from us burning absconds forever and forever
Our meetings become stories on people’s tongue
As you found me breathing in you I heard my breath in you.
Not the very last thing you said was ‘I want to marry you’
‘Will you marry me’ I answered lightly not too brightly
‘If you can wait for me’
How dense can I be why didn’t I say
‘I want to marry you too’ we shall merry soon’
Is that you wanted to hear,
I only wanted to thank you for the miracle of loving me.
After go through the scattered window of my soul
My breathing in you suddenly stop
My wait remains the wait and questions remained unanswered
I perfectly played funeral, in place of marriage.
It was a funeral of faith love trust words & breaths.
We both were out of prisoner bars through keys of locking heart
I was joyful whispering the words seeing mud
You were lonely and sad looking sky.
You didn’t try to brood over it for a minute ‘how I hurt you’
You didn’t try to allow yourself to sulk in self-pity
You tried to do the same, when you hurt your finger
‘An immediate and perfect cure’
You wrote a letter to me as Dale Carnegie advised
Telling how you feel about it didn’t miss any word
You folded, sealed a latter to tore it up
Holding pieces in hand, you look to ‘GOD’ and cried
With GOD help, I skip it”
Shutting the iron door on the past you closed your heart door too.
ON 31st December you were going with a feeling of lost & lonely
I smiled at you and asked can’t we be friends’
