vidha / skill

apne hriday ko
aganit bhagon mein vibhakt kar
inki seepiyan bana
ek ek ashru se bhar raha hoon tumhare
sahej kar rakh raha hoon
kisi din inhein, muktak jo banana hai mujhe

attempted translation,
i am dividing my heart
in a million pieces
making oyster shells out of these
placing each one of your tears in them
with care
someday, i've to make pearls out of these

the first two lines knocked me off ..."apne hriday ko
aganit bhagon mein vibhakt kar ...

divine is the word that i can use ....

and then the transformation to pearls is simply amazing ...

a man who can think like this is special ....

Hey Adi, I am not sure how sooner you will be able to develop this new skill of transforming tears to pearls, but, I am quite sure that you have mastered the skill of transforming string of words into beautiful jewelry of emotions... Keep up the great work...

How do we know said...

धीर गम्भीर
खडा अकेला,
देवालय के प्रांगन में
युगों युगों से
मौन संवाद में
पूछ रहा, ध्येय अपना
वायु – वरुण
आकाश – अरुण से
या ढूंढ रहा था,
अंतिम – अग्नि आलिंगन में

शक्ति पुत्री,
गतिमय, चपल,
प्रशांत, अटल,
बांध गयीं
चहुं ओर मेरे,
आस्था की
डोरी कुशल

और मैं,
अक्षय पीपल
बन उठा कल्पवृक्ष सबल..
