A Silent room burns : ख़ामोश कमरा जलता है

Poem in English & Hindi both

This is what happens when your silence burns with the spark of thoughts.

Taken from bilingual poem collection ‘Poetic Buddha’ by Siddharth


मेरी दीवारों पर लम्हों के घरौंदे हैं
लफ़्ज़ों के तिनके जोड़ जोड़ के,
बनाए तमाम नशेमन
लफ्ज़ जाने पहचाने से
झूमते नाचते हैं…
सूफी दरवेशों की तरह

और पीली लपटें
गुनगुनाती हैं
मानो
धुआं फूंकती हों
जवां चूल्हे में

एक ख़ामोश कमरा
यूं जलता है,
धीमा धीमा सा
नाच चलता है


International version

My room is like a canvas
With five faces
My eyes are like a pen
Writing the world
on walls… on roof
Walls are full of words

Some words twinkle like stars on the roof
Some are dancing like sufi saints
Some are playboys
Some are crying their heart out

Yellow flames
smudging their individuality
Dancing letters,
slowly moving towards a meaning
and a Silent room burns
