वह सूखा गुलाब / The Dry Rose

गलती से मैं ने जैसे ही पन्ने खोले
अपनी उस सुनहरी किताब के,
गिर पड़ा नीचे वह सूखा गुलाब,
और पल भर में ही खिल उठे
उस गुलाब के सभी सहोदर
उस प्यारे चमन में,
मेरी नज़रों के सामने,
अपनी छटा और खुशबू
बिखेरते हुए मेरे कमरे के कोने कोने में…


As soon as I opened the pages
of that golden book, by mistake
the dry rose fell down,
and within moments
all the siblings of that rose
of that lovely garden
blossomed in front of my eyes,
spreading their beauty and fragrance
in every nook and corner of my room…

–Kaushal Kishore


    1. Haha, I agree what you say, but I belong to an era gone, dear Narayan ji, and for me, that era will never go. Thanks for sharing your beautiful reflections!!
