बादल के लिफ़ाफ़े में छुपाकर,

आज रोशनी भेजी है,

इस सूने तन्हा आसमान ने |

और डाकिया बनी है,

मदमस्त सी ये फ़िज़ा,

ताकि मीलों के ये फ़ासले,

आसानी से तय हो सके,

मगर शुल्क लगाया इस मौसम ने,

कुछ हिस्सेदारी अपनी भी माँगी,

ले ली कुछ किरणें फिर,

और बाकी वहीं रहने दी |

इस प्यारी सी सौगात की,

अभिग्राही बनी है ये धरा,

जो इस सन्देश को पाकर,

प्रज्वलित हो उठी,

स्वर्णिम सी हया लिए |

Something Still Remains…

A lack, a loss,
A pain, a suffering,
A broken dream,
An unfulfilled desire,
A longing of eons,
A want of ages,
All make us feel,
Life is over.
But the truth is,
A lack makes space,
For something else,
To fill in.
A loss gives a chance,
To gain wisdom.
A pain makes one accept,
That life is not all roses,
Some thorns are needed,
To make the journey worthwhile.
The suffering is a stage,
Which transforms one,
To unveil the light,
Of the inner self.
A broken dream,
Inspires to dream again.
An unfullied desire,
Keeps the fire alive,
To keep going and achieving.
A longing of eons,
Makes one realise,
The value of a moment.
A want of ages,
Makes one understand,
The fleeting nature of things.
And one comes to a conclusion,
Behind this lack,
Behind this loss,
Behind this pain,
Behind this suffering,
Behind this broken dream,
Behind this unfufilled desire,
Behind this longing of eons,
Behind this want of ages,
Something still remains.

The light still shines

The dark existence,
And its stark persistence,
The obnoxious energy,
And its hollow synergy,
The scathing vice,
And its perturbing caprice,
The impinging attack,
And its stinging flak,
The cunning thought,
And its smelly rot,
The evil intention,
And its pertinent tension,
The sly comments,
And their unpalatable condiments,
The foxy acts,
And their illusionary facts,
The sucking compulsions,
And their draining repulsions,
The erratic statements,
And their puzzled placements,
The gloomy narratives
And their dimming imperatives,
The deliberate scorn,
And its prickly thorn,
The noisy tirade,
And its defeaning charade,
The unrealistic expectations,
And their disappointing manifestations,
The paltry assistance
And its pompous subsistence.
Even within all this,
The light still shines,
And the fragrance still spreads,
The vibrance still stays,
And the exuberance still sprouts.
Even in this barrenness,
In this parched and deficient terrain,
Devoid of warmth and love,
Filled with weeds of hatred and ego,
The scantiness of inspiration,
And the emptiness of positivity,
The goodness still thrives,
The beauty still lives.

Colors and shades,

Hues and tinges,

Strokes and lines,

Arcs and angles,

Shapes and forms,

Shadows and reflections,

Moods and desires,

Thoughts and memories,

Sounds and noises,

Echoes and reverberations,

Rains and winds,

Waves and dunes,

Day and night,

Evening and twilight,

Sunset and sunrise,

Waxing and waning moon,

Pole star and constellations,

Nebulea and cosmos,

Everything in phenomenon,

Known and unknown,

Revealed and concealed,

Perceived and inferred,

Experienced and imagined,

Real and surreal,

Everything changes with light.

When nature paints-
Orange and black 🧡🖤
Sunsets like these are beyond romanticism.
They are a reminder that life is beautiful in every hue.
This darkness makes the inner light shine brighter.
A light that might have went unnoticed in daylight gets recognition in the dark.
Neve fear the dark.
Never run away from it.
Face it with courage.
And see how yourself glow like a firefly.

एक उम्र बीत गई,

एक वक़्त गुज़र गया,

नीव गहरी होती गई,

अस्तित्व उन्नत होता गया,

जितना भी प्राप्त किया,

धीरे धीरे सब खोता गया,

बस ये अनुभव शेष रह गया-

” केवल उन्नत होना ही जीवन नहीं,

परिवर्तित होना भी है,

उत्थान होगा जहाँ भी,

वहाँ पतन भी स्पष्ट है,

अंकुरित होता है जो बीज अंधकार में,

वो रोशनी में ही पनपता है,

जीता है वो हर मौसम,

टहनी, पत्ती, पुष्प, फल, फूल बनकर,


एक एक करके सब त्यागता चला जाता है,

और फिर देखता है जब जब वो,

उस बीते वक़्त को,

तो पाता है एक ही सत्य,

कि फिर उस अंधकार में समा जाना है |

रोशनी जीवन है,

मगर अंधकार जीवन का स्रोत |

और ये सोचता हुआ,

विलीन हो जाता है वहीँ,

जहाँ से उसका उद्गम हुआ था | “

अद्भुत नज़ारा

तिरोहित हो रहा है हौले हौले,

शिखर के शीर्ष पर कान्तिमान,

कनक का ये रमणीय आभूषण,

हो रहा है क्षण क्षण परिवर्तित,

इसका रंग, प्रकाश, और आकार |
इसके आलेख का सिरा,

धीरे धीरे छोड़ रहा है,

गगन की कोमल ओढ़नी पर,

पीले नारंगी रंग का मिश्रण,


बादलों की विषम आकृति में,

यूँ मृदुलता से घुल रहा है,

वक़्त की धीमी आँच पे,

चाशनी सा मदहोश करने वाला,

एक अद्भुत नज़ारा बनाने |

तड़प तिमिर त्याग की,

तृष्णा ताप तंकन की,

आस आलोक आलिंगन की,

आकांक्षा अंकुरित अंतर्मन की,

वृहद विवेचन वैराग्य का,

सरल संलाप साध्य का,

सफ़र सुदृढ़ स्तिथि का,

विराम व्याकुल वृत्ति का,

प्राप्ति पुण्य परमानन्द की |

The Echo of the Divine

© Aakash Veer Singh Photography

The sweet moment of twilight,

And the sky above,

Ready to adorn the blanket,

Of a dark blue shade.

The stillness in the air,

The peace in the ambience,

The divinity’s sandstone idol,

Fragrance of mogra, sandalwood, and camphor,

And the mellow smell of the wet soil.

A flame emblazens much brighter,

As the darkness slowly sets in,

With the sound of the conch and the bells,

The reverberating utterance of the rhythmic mantras,

And the infallible faith of the engrossed devotees.

Indeed, this is true devotion,

When, everything comes to a standstill,

And is ready to be ingested in one’s soul,

And then get completely soaked,

In the ocean of this gaiety,

And surrender oneself,

In dance,

In music,

In emotions,

In expression,

In joy and ecstacy,

Where one experiences the ultimate truth,

A glimpse of the divine.
