बीज / The Seed

कभी ख्वाब टूटते हैं,
कभी आंखें नम होती हैं,
कुछ यादें शेष रह जाती हैं
और कभी कुछ भावानात्मक निशानियां,
कुछ सिसकती कहानियां बढ़ा जाती हैं
मन की वीरानियों को, 
दिल के अंदर कुलालें भरने वाला प्यार
अधूरेपन के एहसास के साथ
कुम्हलाने लगता है,
जैसे सूखने लगते हैं
देखते देखते लताएं और पौधे…

लेकिन वहीं छोड़ जाते हैं सूखे फूल
कुछ बीज जो इंतजार करते हैं
अपने समय का,
एक वह मौसम था
दूसरा आने को तैयार है,
सुनहरे दिन फिर से आयेंगे
बहारो के मौसम में,
आंखों का धुंधलापन कम होगा
जब चांदनी फिर इठलाएगी
टिमटिमाते तारों के बीच…

आंखों से होते हुए दिल में
सागर फिर उमड़ेंगे,
सागर के रेत तब न फिसलेंगे,
जब वे पैरों के नीचे होंगे, हाथों में नहीं,
इंतजार खत्म जरूर होगा,
क्योंकि सही समय इंतजार नहीं करता
ज्यादा दिन
सूखे बीज को प्रस्फुटित करने के लिए…

केवल बीज को जीवित रखना है…


The Seed

Sometimes dreams are broken, sometimes eyes get moist,
some memories get imprinted
on mind and heart
leaving emotionally scarred,
some sobbing stories increase
the desolation of the mind further,
the love that once
fluttered its wings to dance
in the heart
begins to wither
with a feeling of incompleteness,
like the vines and plants
in the autumn…

But dried flowers leave behind
some seeds that wait
for their time and turn,
one season was over,
another is ready to come,
golden days will come again,
shining in the season
of full fun and frolic,
the blurring of the eyes
will subside when
the moonlight flaunts again
amidst the twinkling stars…

Through the eyes,
the ocean will rise again
in the heart,
the sands of the ocean won’t slip
when these are under the feet,
and not in the hands,
the wait definitely will get over, because the right time
doesn’t wait long
to make the dry seed sprout…

Only the seed has to be kept alive…

–Kaushal Kishore

    1. Thank you, Devang, for stopping by and offering kind words of appreciation. Whenever I write in Hindi, I give English version too for larger acceptance, as Google translation misleads at times.🌻

  2. As your website, no doubt, WordPress, refused my comments and also deleted all, I will write here and hope you will get it.

    Your philosophical discourse, Kaushal, is one step ahead of today’s happenings; the picture of the full moon is subconsciously(?)

    connected with Artemis being sent by NASA today to the moon, and it was revealed that there are new methods of growing seeds in the hostile environment and that they will thrive.

    The essence of your poem’s message was well voiced by the philosopher, Lao Tze:

    “ Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”

    Finally, because of the time difference, may I wish you for tomorrow:

    “ Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!”

    1. I’m sorry for the trouble you faced, but I got your comment. Thank you, Joanna for appreciating the post and sharing a beautiful quote from Lao Tze. I was also waiting eagerly for Artemis today, but it was aborted.
      Thank you so much for your Ganesh Chaturthi wishes well in advance. It’s on 31st. Much appreciated!


  3. Wow, these lines are so beautiful and wise. This poem is surely one of the gems that you have created. It’s relatable and one can feel the words as they are written with a flow…
