My last telegram to Princess : मेरा आखिरी तार


Poem in english & Hindi, from my upcoming collection Poetic buddha (all rights reserved)

Smoke so thick
can’t see through it

smell of charring Sugar
Creeping up through feet

Extra Sweet relationships
Turn darker in the heat

Still in a Blind fold
Echoing Voices in my ears

I am sending this telegram
With Scent of all these years

Hindi Version

आंखों के सामने धुआं था गहरा
तभी कुछ मीठा जलने की बू आई
दिल में ‘तार’ की तरह तू आई
जो होता है सबसे पास
उसे झुलसाती है अंदर की आस
और आसपास…
जलती हुई चीनी सी महकती है
क्योंकि बहुत मीठे रिश्ते
आग नहीं झेल पाते
वो आधे जले हुए की महक
वो उड़ती राख नहीं झेल पाते
