एक छवि / An Image

धरती पर विचरण करते हुए
एक अद्भुत छवि
कुछ अस्पष्ट शब्द भेजती है,
जो सरसराहट की आवाज के साथ
मेरे कृतज्ञ कानों में पहुंचते हैं,
जिन्हें अवशोषित कर वह
अग्रेषित कर देते है नृप हृदय को,
जो सदैव तत्पर रहता है,
वैक्षिक गुहा की भीड़-भाड़ से
बाहर निकल आने को…
और मैं कुछ गूढ़ को पाने की ललक में
सराबोर हो जाता हूं अद्भुत विचारों से
मृगतृष्णा की निरंतर बारिश में…


A strange image
sauntering down the earth,
sends some unvoiced words,
that rush with a rustling sound
to my obliging ears,
that absorb and relay quietly
to the king heart,
that is ever-ready to wriggle out
of the overcrowded thoracic cavity…
and I get drenched
with fancy ideas
to crave for something esoteric
in the incessant rains of mirage…

–Kaushal Kishore


  1. When I read your today’s poem I am amazed by your knowledge!!
    You want to be understood only by a small number of people with specialized knowledge?
    I think you got your wish!
    And your poetic ability will continue without interruption for years to come!

    Thank you, Kaushal, it was a treat!

    1. Thank you, Joanna for your analytical comment and kind words, though I couldn’t exactly decipher what you want to communicate. I wish to remain as simple as possible. That’s why I write mostly in both languages so that maximum readers may like to read. But I’ll be more cautious in future.


      1. I think, Kaushal, that you overestimate the knowledge of your readers.
        Using words like esoteric and incessant isn’t simple language. Is the meaning in Hindi the same as it is in English?

      2. ‘Perfection is esoteric’ is my pet line. I never thought that esoteric is esoteric. But your suggestions have been well received, Joanna. No issue. As regards Hindi, I never go for literal translation. I do it myself to bring out the meaning as close as possible.

  2. “मृगतृष्णा की निरंतर बारिश” बहुत दूर तक चलाता है यह शब्द …..सुंदर विरोधाभास अलंकार।
