Amazon


Hidden dip in dense amazon
At the center of it.
Unseen, unexplored.
But the fragrance travels
from north to south
And east to west,
and fills each heart with love.
Sunrays penetrate all thick layers of foliage
Just to fall on it.
Her heart is so kind
that she reflects each ray with different refraction.
Vinous air makes birds, reptiles
And ocean waves compete to capture it.
But the dense amazon turns into the wall of China
and protects it.
Not because it is weak
But because it makes Amazon unique in the universe.
Because Amazon dances every morning
By seeing its beauty.
The beauty which is different in the morning
And different at night.
The beauty is soft silky in the afternoon and
Red, introverted in the evening.
The beauty which charms sun rays in the morning
And reptiles at night.
The beauty hugs all hearts on this earth.

Life in this century


How strange is life
in this century?
Husband and wife say
hi, hello, good morning, good night
happy anniversary
on WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram,
not by holding a hand and looking into eyes.

So many costly gifts
Year by year
are collected in the basement.
They have not seen hot Sun
And fresh summer air.
Unable to save love and marriage.

We are earning money
To have whiskey and wine
Not to buy salt, wheat, and Saari.

Not very far those days
When we will celebrate
Our birthday in the stratosphere
While attending a lecture against global warming
And how to save plants, farmers, and the sea.

सियासत की नावं


जिस मोड़ से गुजरी है सियासत की नावं
उसी मोड़ से गुजरेगी क़यामत की नावं।

जिन नजरों ने लाइ है ये मोहब्बत की रात
वो नजरे हिन् लाएंगी क़यामत की रात.

वो महात्मा थे जब तक यहाँ थी गैरों की नावं
अपनों ने ही डुबों दी पहले मेरी नावं.

Life without father


In the childhood

I was not doing anything. 

But I had everything.

In our big family,

with just my father’s earnings. 

Now I am doing everything. 

I have everything, 

but life is not satisfied.

With my big earnings 

and a small family 

that starts and ends with me. 

I used to fight for food

with my sisters and everyone.

Now there is no one to fight. 

The kitchen is full of food, 

But I don’t have that taste in curry.

हम बाबूसाहेब


छपरा के ह इन हम बाबूसाहेब बबुनी
रखनी चोली हम तहरे नाप के.

आ जा कभी हमारा बथान पे
भूल जइबू फिर गइल बाजार में.

पूछ लियह कोई से हमर नाम लेके
पहुंचा दिहि लोग भाभी कह के.

फूल


मौसम कह रहा है न हैरान हो
बादलों में फिर से कोई नाम है सिवान से.
और वो जो फूल हर मौसम में खिल लेते हैं
वो आते हैं हमारे और तुम्हारे जैसे किसी गावं से.

वो फूल जो खिल कर मेरा न हुआ-२
किसी मयकसे में मुझे नशा न हुआ.-२
और किस्मत से क्या शिकवा करोगे परमीत
अम्बर पे चाँद आ के भी मेरे, मेरा न हुआ, मेरा न हुआ.

ग्रीष्मकालीन और शीतकालीन इश्क़


इश्क़ दो तरह की होती
ग्रीष्मकालीन और शीतकालीन
शीतकालीन:
नरम-नरम घास पे
ओस की बूंदें
उसपे अपने पाँव
सिरहन सी होती
मीठी लगती ताप.

ग्रीष्मकालीन:
छिटक-छिटक के
लालिमा उषा की
क्षितिज से बुलाती नाम
कलरव करते पक्षी
मीठी पेड़ों की छाँव।

काँधे पे हल लिए
खेत जाता किसान
दोपहर में नहा -खा
चारपाई पे लेता आराम।

शीतकालीन:
सुबह – शाम जलती अलाव
चूल्हे की अंगीठी
रात के पड़ाव पे
विरहा की तान
और गृहणियों के गान.

You are my vitamin D


A cup of Starbucks coffee,
with you daily
makes my day
and keeps my mind healthy.
You are my vitamin D.
I want it daily.

The way you laugh,
the way you talk,
what should I say?
It is just mesmerizing.
You are my vitamin D.
I want it daily.

After having beers that night
a short walk with you
I started feeling
that our wavelengths were matching.
You are my vitamin D.
I want it daily.

Fake and Corrupt


You are corrupt
and you are fake.
My heart knows that
you are a snake.
You can fool anyone
but I am not that one.

In the name of the association
you have created your monopoly.
You want only you to shout
to prove yourself as a leader.
You can get million silent followers
but I am not that one.

Dedicated to those fake leaders who does not want younger people to express.
