काश...


"जीवेम शरदः शतम"
किसकी तमन्ना है?
..मेरी तो क़तई नहीं!

काश मैं तितली होती,
भोर की किरण में पैदा.

दिन भर उड़ती आज़ाद,
खुली हवाओं में ताज़ी.

रंग-बिरंगे फूलों से खेलती,
छेड़ती, रस उनका पीती.

गाँव की होती तो, भोले बच्चों में,
शहर की तो, ख़ूबसूरत लड़कियों में,
और जंगली होती तो,
ज़मीन से ख़ुदाई तक के फ़ासलों में
समूचा दिन बिताती.
(मेरा पूरा जीवन!)

और शाम ढले गिर जाती
कृतज्ञ होकर
अस्तित्व के प्रति...

    1. I'm delighted Jaish, You do understand the original quite well:)
      The last lines mean..
      "..and I would fall to death by the evening grateful and indebted to existence for its kindness.."
      (the life cycle of a butterfly is a day)
      The meaning of 'astitva' is existence.
      Thank you Jaish once again:)

  12. Bahut sundar, Amitji! Kaash main titli hoti, phool hoti, chidiya hoti toh main zindagi koh jee paati. Din raat daud bhaag mein na lagi rahte, kuch lamhon kee sundarta pee paati!
