Tibetan & a stick of black ink
My love poem in Tibetan (Batang, Bhokha, Bhotia, Bod, Bod Skad, Byokha, Dartsemdo, Dbus, Dbusgtsang, Deqing Zang, Diaspora Tibetan, Dru, Gtsang, Hanniu, Kongbo, Lhasa, Mngahris, Tsang, Utsang, Wei, Weizang, Zang, Zang Wen, Aba, Anshuenkuan Nyarong, Nganshuenkuan, Ngari, Panakha-Panags, Paurong, Phoke, Pohbetian, Poke, Skad, Tatsienlu, Tebilian, Tibate, Central Tibetan, Autonym : བོད་སྐད་, Bod skad - Böké). This language is spoken by 6 million people in the Autonomous Region of Tibet and in the Tibetan-populated regions of China (Qinghai, Gansu, Sichuan and Yunnan) ... There, people knows what these words mean.
Tibetan is divided into 5 great dialects, and is written with phagspa writing! She practices it with a stick of black ink and her brush for calligraphy, because everything in her house is meant to be art! How are pretty these graphs! They give to my little poem a majestic impulse. The precision and softness of their features makes me think of the black of your little make-up eyes.
The written Tibetan language, was originally intended exclusively for the translation of Sanskrit Buddhist texts. The spoken language is very diverse, with many dialects, and deviates considerably from the erudite language, for which a written language has been standardized. One speaks tibetan, in Nepal, China, Pakistan, Bhutan, India and Burma. Since the Second World War, the great languages that surround Tibetan, have greatly influenced it (Chinese, Hindi, Nepali).
The earliest documents date from the 8th century, the inscriptions of bSam-yas and the manuscripts of the caves of Dunhuang. The literary language has stabilized and developed in the 9th century, and the written language has remained stable for nearly 10 centuries.
Tibetan literature is of considerable abundance. Initially, it is that of a Buddhist scholasticism, with the times, the genres diversify, but remain very religious. Often historical, sometimes technical, it is formed of epics. There is also a purely oral Tibetan literature which consists of short tales and love songs.
I have not been able to find information on Tibetan poets and poems, there are certainly a few, because for in each language the first texts are mostly religious as is the case for Tibetan, and also written in Verses in the form of poems.
