विश्वसनीयता / Reliability

पत्तों और फूलों का क्या भरोसा!
वे आज हैं कल नहीं,
रिश्ते तो निभाती है जड़,
ऊपर से नीचे तक,
वृक्ष के हर हिस्से के साथ,
अंतिम सांस तक,
अंधी, गूंगी और बहरी बनकर…


Leaves and flowers are not reliable!
they are today but not tomorrow;
the root plays the relationship
with every part of the tree
right from top to bottom,
till the last breath
by remaining
blind, dumb
and deaf…

–Kaushal Kishore

    1. बहुत बहुत धन्यवाद, अपर्णा जी, इस उत्साह वर्धन के लिए!


  1. Thank you, Kaushal, for your evening thoughts. To me, the roots are the most intelligent part of any tree. In the words of the great sage, Rumi:
    “Maybe you are searching among the branches for what only appears in the roots.”

    1. Those are certainly Rumi’s pearls of wisdom. Thank you, Joanna, for sharing the same here. Your words always supplement my posts. Truly appreciated!


  2. Makes me think of how many times I have been the root…unseen, unheard, taken for granted while others bloom. They don’t pay any mind until something severs the bond…and they begin to wilt.
