still no words, adi?

it is strange, when I’d no words, the world came by and listened.

thanks to everyone who came around to delhidreams, sat with me and heard whatever i'd to say. why i'm writing this. because delhidreams is a year old now.

more so, at a time when i do not feel like posting anything. so many poems are written, lying abandoned, rusting in the notebooks, because i want to post something special for one individual.

life has closed one chapter, and a fresh one has begun. and this all took form recently. perhaps, the process was on for some time, only i didn't realize the world changing around me. yes hagrid, god does exists, and it exists in your very shadows. it existed there all the time. how foolish i could have been. and bugs, yes i've been naive enough to ignore everything, whether gift or abuse, fault or purpose, perhaps not this one, not this time.

am feeling very calm. at ease with myself and the world around. everything has a new beauty, like the old landlord couple above. it is something felt, till the very pores of these fingers.

and this time too, nothing except words for you, my teacher.

main roun to mere aansu nahi
main muskuraun to main nahi
main kya likhun, main kya padhun
mere shabd ye mere nahi
ye kaise tujhko bataun main
meri har main me, samayi hai tu hi

a translation attempt for starry and others,

if i cry, the tears are not mine
if i smile, i'm not the one smiling
what do i write, what do i read
these words are not mine
how do i tell you
you are the one, merged in my every 'me'

can't find an end to this post
no full-stops here
its a journey, and the journey needs no end
just three dots would do here,

welcome to delhidreams...

You write well, even when you feel you have no words ....

There's a saying: Do not speak unless you can improve the silence :).
But there's silence and there's silence. Yours seems to be the nicer sort. Congratulations on that. I wish a hundered more such silences on you (though not on delhidreams:).
Oh and how you can reach me?? I'm right here, arent I :p.

another attempted translation

i cry, with the tears that are not mine
i smile, i'm not the one
what may i write, what may i read
for these words are not mine
wat do i tell you
for you are the one, merged in my every 'me'

I just love your writing -
so poetic -
i loved the line
"everything has a new beauty
like the old landlord couple above..."

it made me feel hopeful somehow -
and the idea that you are in a place that was "arriving" for
a while - sounds so wonderful.
I am looking forward to being in that place - or recognizing that
i am in the place -

so glad to have found your
beautiful blog:)
