उदासी

ये  ख़ुनक भरी हवा और ये चांदनी का सैलाब मेरे मन के सूनेपन को भर   नहीं   पाता हादसों और  तल्ख़ियों से पुख्ता मेरे   मन   का   बाँध तेरी बेरुख़ी  से अब बिखर  नहीं  पाता कौन रोकेगा ऐसे दर्द के दरिये का बहाव जिसके आगे नसीहतों का पर्वत ठहर नहीं पाता ये […]

The wind is blowing softly around Heady  fragrance  wafting  round & round River  rushing  down the valley Tumbling, hurtling, dancing  gaily Flowers  blooming  over  the  hills It’s  Spring  the season that  thrills I’m  missing  the  wonderment through & through For me  the  Magic  were you, just  You Birds, chirping, flock  […]

Aroma

The cozy mist reposing on the Slumbering leaves Shakes them out of their stupor; The parched wind Sucks the fading drops Blending with gaiety  As the grasshoppers hop around Tasting the grassy seeds moist and cool Hush! It’s yet not warm The sun is reluctant to shine Through the hazy […]
