Silence

Silence

The clock ticks

Reminding of the movement

Set in motion

Under whose plan or will?

The rising Sun

Seen day after day

Eternal as though

A stark witness

To the movements herein

The rising waves,

Who impels them?

For whom do they rise and fall

Tirelessly

Sometimes graceful,

Other times not!

The hills, the lakes, the snow,

The meadows, the forests

Oh! So much … All in motion

How can life be finite?

When every aspect of it is infinite!

And Now, I hear the silence!

Between the two tick ….. tick!

Ah! The joy of Silence!

शब्द

शब्दों को क्यों हम कुछ कहें,

जब वह तो ख़ुद कुछ कहते ही नहीं ।

जो कहा है;

उसे फिर क्यों हम कहें,

जब पहले भी वह कुछ न कह सके ।

शब्दों मे तो कुछ बात कहॉं;

जब यह जाना ही है,

अब क्यों कुछ हम कहें ।
