Translation of Poo Avizhum Pozhudhil from Enakkul Oruvan


So, here is the translation of the song Poo Avizhum Pozhudhil from Enakkul Oruvan. By the way, the song takes the credit of being one of the very few songs that has filled my ears the maximum number of times in a loop, without interference from other songs, for days together. There we go...


As the flower unfurls,
my mind sees a thousand dreams.
I float through one dream
and see the same moon.

From her face's innocence,
emerged a radiant smile
and it sprinkled
a myriad lucent flowers.

Then, the skin gets to feel
like the floating cloud.
The clouds entwine
to give birth to the rain.

Your verse traverses through
the notes of my breath,
And there surfaces, the music of love
that warmly drench my inner depths.

Like the effulgent moon
seen in the sky's breadth,
She'd be seen
in this man's expanse.

She spread her stellar wings,
Locked my fingers into hers,
Turned a blind eye
and drew me in dreams.

This is the one state
that escapes the length of time.
No wonder...
I see a million flowers
bloom on my skin.
