ഓര്‍ക്കാതെ പോകുന്നത്‌

ആര്‍ദ്രമീ ധനുമാസരാവുകളിലൊന്നില്‍
ആതിര വരും പോകുമല്ലേ സഖീ
- Kakkad is the most evocative in "സഫലമീ യാത്ര". Something that we scarce think of, aathira comes and goes without our knowledge. So is death, and that is what aathira stands for here. But for Kakkad it is a sweet memory coming back to take its due space. A journey back to the source. A soft touch of memory before we ourseleves become memory.

Thanks!
This poem is the last one from Kakkad, just before he died of cancer and accepts impending death as a graceful experince. Would post more on Kakkad soon....
