Mela


Mele ki camak damak
Aankhon ko choandiyati hai
Chamakti hui sajavat
Bujhti jalti bijliyai
Tumhe bulati hai
Idhar vah jhoola jo tumhe
Aasman choyave
Udhar vah jo tumhe yaisa gol ghoomaye

Chaakar par chaakar
Apni sudh budh hi kho jaye
Aur phir chunu ki chat, chacha ke gole man lalchayai
Haan, vah sheesha yaisa jadoee
Hame apne badalte roop dhiklaye
Hawa se baate karti rang birangi chaakari
Jhis ke ghoome me hum kho jaaye
Aur vah madari jo apni harkatoe sehame hasaiye
Hamari indriya jo is jashn ko choos rahi hai
kya chodengee apna rang

Yaisa hi to jeevan hai
Ek mela
Maya ki choonri aude hum
Aur aur ki haud me
Soochne vicharne ki
Shamta khohi
Hum yaha kis liye, kab tak?
Aakhir hum kaun?

Har din dihkti arthiyoo ki baraat
Asthayita har taraf se ghere
Phir bhi vivek hai maun
Na koi sawal na khoi jhigyasa
Sun man par indriya kare tandav
Jaise gool jhoole par kabhi upar kabhi neeche
Jindagi bin baataye kab jeevan se khisak gayi khabar nahi?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
