वक़्त

हाँ चाहा  था  मैंने 
कि वक़्त  ठहर जाए कभी 

और सच ही 
वो ठहर गया कहीं, लेकिन-

गाढ़े, भारी धुएँ की तरह… 
बर्फ़ की मज़बूत चट्टान जैसा!

उड़ता है 
 पिघलता है.





Translation:

Yes, I wished the time 
to cease some time

And it somewhere stopped
but, indeed

Like heavy smoke thick...
like an iceberg robust!

Neither does it dilute
nor melt.

  12. After a long time...your beautiful poetry reminded me of a Bengali song by Hemant Kumar composed by Salil Choudhry. The tune was later adopted to create one of the masterpieces of Hindi film songs...kaheen door jab din dhal jaaye....

    The lines of the Bengali version if translated would stand like this..."amidst a frenzy of movement around I stand still like an icy glacier..."

    Both the Hindi and the English versions were awesome!!
