the book / किताब



आकाश और कुछ नहीं
समुद्र है गहरा सा
और पंछी तैरते हैं उसमें
पंख फैलाये

चाँद नीला है
आकाश में डूबे किसी लंगर की तरह
और मेरा वादा है उस से, जब मिलूंगा अगली बार
तो अपनी सबसे प्यारी किताब से कुछ पढ़कर सुनाऊंगा उसे

श श

अभी
मत बताना उसे
की आकाश और समुद्र दोनों से गहरी
और नीले चाँद से ज्यादा रूपहली उसकी आँखों को पढना ही
मुझे सबसे अच्छा लगता है


sky is nothing
but an ocean deep
and birds swim in it
with wings spread out

blue is the moon
like an anchor dropped in this heavenly sea
and i've promised, when i meet her next
will read her some passages from my favorite book

shshsh

don't tell her yet
that deeper than the sky and the sea
and more beautiful than the shimmering moon
it is her eyes, that i love reading most

Sunte hain ke mil jaati hai Har Cheeez Duaaa Se...
Ek Roz tumhe Maaang ke Dekheinge Khudaaa Se...

Har cheez ho sakti nahi shabdon mein bayaan,
humse poocho, yeh din-e-aasmaan mein ek tara bhi hai.


bahut khoobsoorat hai dost...

Pragya Modi said...

The two poems kursiyan, bhasha gave me all gyan regarding your intense poetry and this one no different! someone had rightly pointed out tht you are too good with romance...but each and every poem is a gem in its own way :):)

So beautiful, so exquisite! The poem takes one soaring into that ocean that is the sky!

My fave bit:
अभी मत बताना उसे
की आकाश और समुद्र दोनों से गहरी
और नीले चाँद से ज्यादा रूपहली उसकी आँखों को पढना ही
मुझे सबसे अच्छा लगता है

Thank you also for the English version!
