खामोशी / Silence

मेरी खामोशी ने कुछ कहा
तुम्हारी खामोशी ने इसे सुना भी,
लेकिन मेरी खामोशी को इंतजार है
अब भी तुम्हारी खामोशी के जवाब का…


My silence said something
your silence heard it too,
but my silence is still waiting
for the answer of your silence…

    1. I agree, Joanna, the observations may be situational. Silence is the best answer when one is speaking, but here both sides are silent and want to converse. Thank you for remembering the earlier version. You have a sharp memory indeed.


  1. Would be nice if we could convey our thoughts without talking, but experience tells me that sometimes misunderstanding can happen or presumptions but other times it can be just perfect when the “other” really knows you.
