कोंपलें ...

                                                                  (Image courtesy:Web)


सरकती  नमी 
है ज्यूँ  ठूँठ में
बस चन्द कोंपलें 
और फिर क्षय 
चिर- स्थाई,
यूँ ही लरज़ती 
हो तुम
मुझ में समाई!

Translation:

Sprouts...

Quiver you in me
like the damp,
in a stump-
sprouts
a few more,
and decay
Undying!


Explanation:
Sorry darlings, it can’t be explained...it can only be felt!!

  1. Pleasures may sprout and decay but the spring of love that the thought of you gives rise to is eternal? Abh hum shayari tho zyada nahin samjh paate Amitji par isse tho mujko yehi laga.

    1. Thank you Suresh:)
      You're too modest!
      Yours is a great and sublime interpretation!
      Though it was written with a mundane thought that the pleasures of your love are small and momentary while the decay it is causing to me is eternal!

    2. I made the 'nami' instead of the 'kshay' eternal, didn't I? But then I always like to see the positive :)

  4. When an author writes something which ONLY he can fully understand, it means that he has plunged to a depth unknown. Everything cannot be explained and even if explained, cannot be understood. I'm sure that you enjoyed the moment of its creation. Great work, Amit.

    1. I had only submitted that I can't explain it, and not that it can't be understood!
      Yes, I sure loved creating it, although it wasn't much of an effort. It flowed out almost naturally:)from an unknown depth as you rightly said:)
      Thank you Sindhu:)

    2. I sincerely felt that no one would understand these lines in its depth except you, for it is that deep..
