किलकारियां / Squeals


समय के प्रवाह के साथ अब
कुछ यादें दिल से रिस रही हैं
कुछ अंदर से चुभ रही हैं
लेकिन कुछ नम्र यादें
मेरे दिल की गोद में
सुरक्षित बैठी हुई
कोशिश करती हैं
मुझे याद दिलाने की
अपने बचपन की,
लेकिन उनकी किलकारियां
धूमिल पड़ जाती हैं
इस सांसारिकता के नक्कारखाने में…


🚸 🚸 🚸 🚸 🚸 🚸 🚸🚸 🚸


With efflux of time
some memories are now
oozing out of the heart.
some are pricking from inside
but some memories are meek,
sitting pretty safely
in the lap of my heart
trying to remind me
of my childhood,
but their squeals fade away
into the deafening noise
of this worldliness…

      1. Yes my family and I were talking about how fickle memories are yesterday. My two grown up daughters were wanting me to verify each of their opposing memories of what happened and honestly I have absolutely no memory of either thing happening. Fortunately the accused had the humility to apologize even if she could not remember doing it … But beautiful memories are delishes and thank goodness for positive imagination too.

      2. You have rightly said that beautiful memories are delishes. It remains, however, a fact that certain memories, howsoever big and bright, are lost in oblivion, while some unimportant memories remain intact in the mind. Strange are their ways. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful experiences 🙏

  1. यादें कुछ खिलखिलाती
    कुछ यूं ही कभी रुलाती
    कभी जहन से फिसल जाती
    कभी सचित्र दिखने लग जाती
    कभी धुंदली पड़ने लगे जाती
