its been so long / बहुत दिन हुए अब

बहुत दिन हुए अब
धड़कने नहीं सुनी धरती की, मद्धम
न धूप को छेड़ा, न हवा संग खेला

बहुत दिन हुए अब
बादलों की खेती नहीं की मैंने
न बीज बोए बारिशों के, न फसल काटी सपनों की

बहुत दिन हुए अब
चाँद से बातें नहीं की अपने
न शब्दों को तराशा, न एहसास पिरोये लड़ियों में

पर अब नहीं, अब नहीं
बहुत दिन हो गए अब


translation coming up soon :)
and here it is

its been so long
since i heard the earth's heartbeat faint
neither teased sunshine
nor with the breeze i played

its been so long
since i tilled the clouds
neither sowed the seeds of rains
nor the crop of dreams i reaped

its been so long
since i talked with my love - the moon
either sculpted these words of mine
nor any feelings i strung

but... not anymore, not anymore
been too long it already is

कभी कभी ज़िन्दगी में, जीने की कोशिश में हम बहुत सारी बातों को नज़रंदाज़ कर देते हैं, फिर सोचते हैं अब बहुत देर हो गयी है. छोड़ देते हैं कोशिश करना, फिर से उन् बातों को महसूस करना. और वोह छोटी छोटी बातें इंतज़ार करती रहती हैं हमारा, के कभी तो हम देखेंगे उनकी तरफ, कभी तो सीखेंगे की इन्ही छोटी छोटी बातों में ज़िन्दगी का रस छिपा हुआ है.

बहुत अच्छी कविता है adee ... लिखते रहो

...you are depriving the readers of some soulful poetry!!

Srushti Rao said...

बहुत दिन हुए अब हमने वोह गीत नहीं सुना, बहुत दिन हुए अब मैंने कोई तराना नहीं छेडा... पर आदी आपकी कविता ने कुच्छ वोह छेड़ा है की अब बहुत दिन नहीं होंगे अब वोह सब होगा जो हम करना चाहते है. अब कुच्छ भी थोड़े दिनों के लिए "Park" नहीं होगा, जो शायद हम बाद में कर सके...

Very beautiful written. Superb!

Cheers!

englih lang mein woh maza nahin jo hindi ki khoobsoorti mein hai...

= rich

bankebihari said...

समझ नहीं आता की ये ख़ुदा किससे नाराज़ है,
मैं जो तेरे इश्क में उसे भूल गया हूँ या जो तू उसे भूल मुझ से इश्क करने लगी है
चाहे जो भी हो, इस इश्के-ऐ -रश्क में सितम वो मुझ पर ढाकर, खुद इंसान-सा होता जा रहा है

Jon said...

lovely poem... full of renewal and yet also full of sadness and apprehension... draws me in... thanks for sharing

bindaasviti said...
