snow



maine barf dekhi hai to sirf
rupehle parde par girte huye
ya kitaabon, akhbaron ke
bejan pannon par
barf ko kabhi chua nahi maine
kabhi pighli nahi woh mere hathon mein


haan itna padha hai jaroor
ke barf ke koi bhi do kan
ek se nahi hote
abr se girte hain
aur sama jate hain
zameen ki gard mein


maine barf ko dekha hai sirf
par kabhi jana nahi
kuch lamhon ke khel ki
is sard zindagi mein
kahin main aur tum
barf ke ye tukde to nahi

snow

i've seen snow
on the silver screen only
or on the lifeless pages
of books or newspapers
haven't touched snow ever
it never melted in my hands

yes, have read this much
that no two snowflakes
are alike
falling from the heavens
they merge
in the dust of the ground

i've only seen the snow
but never could i feel it
in this few moments'
cold life
are both of us
not these snowflakes?

hmmmm never ever thought of it like that.. no two snow flakes are alike, yet they are all snowflakes..
no two human are alike - yet we're all human. VERY INTERESTING...

by the way - real snow is super pretty when its falling. i always feel like im in a snow globe =).

Very well written. I loved the irony u were able to create wherein u have a longing for snow and in the end u discover rather suspiciously "kahin main aur tum
barf ke ye tukde to nahi",
which in a way also highlights the ignorance of humans who always try to search things outside of them when we all know that Aham Brahmasmi.

u rem ... me reading so many of blogs when i stumpled upon urs by some good grace and couldnt help my self commenting as i read and re-read them and then i came to snow and well i was filled with such joy after reading it that couldnt help commenting on it ...

mere dost it's a fantabulous piece of ur ... and the lines i cherish even today ...
"maine barf dekhi hai to sirf
rupehle parde par girte huye
ya kitaabon, akhbaron ke
bejan pannon par
barf ko kabhi chua nahi maine
kabhi pighli nahi woh mere hathon mein"

&"abr se girte hain
aur sama jate hain
zameen ki gard mein"

&

"kahin main aur tum
barf ke ye tukde to nahi "

i enjoy every piece tht u write ....
