देन / Gift

दुनिया के लाखों पेड़
गिलहरियों की देन हैं,
वे खुराक के लिए बीज
जमीन में छुपा देती हैं,
और फिर वह जगह ही
भूल जाती हैं…
यह सृष्टि चल रही है शायद,
ऐसी ही आत्माओं से
और उनकी विस्मृति से…


Millions of trees
in this world are
the gift of squirrels,
they hide the seeds
in the ground for food,
and then forget the place
this world is running perhaps
with such souls
and their forgetfulness...

–Kaushal Kishore



    1. मैं इस कहानी को पढ़ा नहीं था। पढ़कर वाकई अच्छा लगा। बहुत बहुत धन्यवाद।


  1. The squirrels, certainly, Kaushal, but birds too, after eating the seeds from fruits, and digesting, plant the trees and plants. I have the proof in my garden!
    But your squirrel is so cute that he can be the winner!

    1. You’re right, Joanna, birds, beetles, wasps etc are also the souls that help preserve the nature in their own ways. And yes, I love squirrels. Thank you for sharing your beautiful thoughts.


  2. I wonder how many seeds us humans plant with a kind word, a smile, or a small act of kindness or compassion….we continue on our day not realizing the impact of what we left behind. Thank you for the ponderings this morning, KK, beautifully penned! 💞💞💞

    1. That’s really a very thoughtful comment, Dawn! And I fully agree with you. The best things humans can plant are the kind words and deeds. Thank you so much 💕💕💕
