ललक / Yearning

थक कर चूर
मैं जरा लेट क्या गया
शरीर को आराम की ललक हो गई
और मेरे मन को अपनी मां की गोद की


As I lie down,
after being tired
my body starts yearning for rest
and my heart for the mother’s lap…

–Kaushal Kishore

    1. I don’t know how often, Joanna! Particularly after her demise, I have started thinking of her more. Thank you for your kind words about my mom.


    1. I agree with you, mother’s lap is the best ointment that a child can have in this world. Thank you. I’m glad that this resonates with you.

    1. That’s so very kind, Daisy! I simply write as hobby, not by profession. I write what I see around me. Thank you so much for your appreciation 😊💐🙏
