मेंहदी / Henna

यह मेंहदी का रंग नहीं है
तुम्हारे हाथों में,
यह तो तुम्हारे हाथों की ऊष्मा है,
जिसने मेंहदी से
अवशोषित कर लिया है
लाल रंग को…


It’s not the color of the henna
in your hands,
it’s the warmth of your hands,
that has absorbed
the red color
from the henna…

  1. आपकी रचनाओ ने इश्क़ को नए आयाम जो दिए
    नाकाम सी ज़िन्दगी को जैसे कई काम मिल गए

    1. इश्क भी एक जरूरी काम है।
      जिंदगी को जीने का पैगाम है।।

  2. The word warmth added the feeling of love and belonging even though the henna is not a natural part of the hand, with warmth, its beautiful design became an integral part of the hand. Very interesting. 🙂
