« The teacher asks a question.
You know the answer, you suspect
you are the only one in the classroom
who knows the answer, because the person
in question is yourself, and on that
you are the greatest living authority,
but you don’t raise your hand.
You raise the top of your desk
and take out an apple.
You look out the window.
You don’t raise your hand and there is
some essential beauty in your fingers,
which aren’t even drumming, but lie
flat and peaceful.
The teacher repeats the question.
Outside the window, on an overhanging branch,
a robin is ruffling its feathers
and spring is in the air. »
— Mary Ruefle, “The Hand”
दिशा-दिशा में गूँज रहा है, भारत माता का जयगान!
भारत का संदेश विश्व को, मानव-मानव एक समान!!
गणतंत्र_दिवस !! जय हिंद !! ️
बसंत आया है कोई संदेश लाया है
अनगिनित फूल खिले हैं धारा पर
कनेर का एक पीला फूल भी खिला है
तुम्हारी तमाम स्मृतियां जगह जगह बिखरी पड़ी हैं पालश,
दूर कहीं कुहूक रही है कोयल भी,
प्रेमलता तुम गाओ ना बागन में कोई मधुर गीत,
इसी वेला में आज मैं बतला देना चाहती हूं शाम होते ही रहस्य खोलने वाले अनुरागी चांद को, की आया है आज प्रीत कुसुंभ वसंत
ऋतुराज तुम्हारा अभिनंदन है...
God I was crazy for not
Going to her door,
Tapping on her window,
Following her to the river
Where her dory grew wet like the moon,
A bird sick of its tree, I despair,
Leaves without wind, I lay
Damp and quiet on the earth.
- (Copper Canyon Press, 2015)
Today I want
to resolve nothing.
I only want to walk
a little longer in the cold
— (BOA Editions Ltd., 2000)
Those who run this is how helplessness
Path is - light
Distance still distance.
There was no clouds
There was rain in her desires
I see clouds in dreams
And waiting for rain...
कविता का उद्देश्य है हमें याद दिलाना की कितना मुश्क़िल है एक ही व्यक्ति हो कर रहना। कि हमारे घर खुले हुए हैं, दरवाज़ों में नहीं लगी हैं चाबियाँ और अदृश्य अतिथि अपनी इच्छा से अंदर और बाहर आते जाते हैं।
- चेस्लाव मिलोष
वे कवि को देखने आए
और उन्होंने क्या देखा ?
एक आदमी कुर्सी पर बैठा हुआ
जिसने ढाँक रखा था अपना चेहरा
और क्षण भर बाद उसने कहा
बहोत बुरा। तुम बरसों पहले मेरे पास नहीं आए।
They came to see the poet
And what did they see?
They saw a man
Sitting on a chair
Who covered his face
And after a while he said
Too bad you didn't come
To me years ago
i asked God to give me happiness. God said, no. I give you blessings. happiness is up to you. – unknown
I think about you sometimes, even when I'm not praying.
~ Letters from children to God
Open your heart and invite God into every circumstance because when God enters the scene, miracles happen!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S invite God into every circumstance…
Make yourself light by removing the ego within, for only those who are light can fly high!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S become light by freeing ourselves from ego...
Who draws the lines around the countries?
- Letters from children to God
as a love letter
where the ink
caught in a place
I can't remember
‘Devotion’ gives knowledge,
‘Politeness’ gives respect,
‘Capability’ gives space,
When these three combine together, it gives a person honour everywhere!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S become honourable…
I look at the clock
and it’s ten twenty-two
I was wondering why
we do the things that we do
this moment in time
slips into the past
the things that I cherish
will never last
the letters that you sent me
sit there on the table
like the pages from a book
I’d write if I were able
the book of us
I’d call it
each page would serve to show
that in this life
that we have lived
there is much that we don’t know
Yes much that we don’t know
and more we never knew
that is what I’d try to show
in this book of you
and I would tell the reasons
as I knew them to be true
for all the things I never did
because I never knew
I would profess to knowing
just one thing for sure
one’s life should never pass
through the slot inside the door
Live in such a way that those who know you, but don't know God, will come to know God because they know you!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S be mirrors that reflect God's light...
When you are pushed to the edge, trust God fully, because only two things can happen. Either He will catch you when you fall or He will teach you how to fly.
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S trust God fully...
“You don’t have to worry about love. As long as I’m existing, you will be loved.”
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S love God with all our hearts...
God will make a way when there seems to be no way!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S trust God’s way...
God is always thinking about you. Do you have time for Him?
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S make time for God everyday...
my dear when i tell you how
the world is not permanent
nor anything in it
I am trying to tell you
that the ache in your heart
is just as temporary
as the temporary world
that caused it
Smile is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart!
TODAY ONWARDS LET’S win everyone's heart with our smile...
I just want you to talk to me. Tell me how you feel. About me. About the world. About life. Just talk to me
“love may be a perfume factory or black light theater.
the childhood love is always the river.
you call me a widow of rivers.
I carry their sound in the wirebasket of my ribcage.”
“in this city you float over me, your body luminescent
with desire. that language is dead.
that the shadow theatre of your limbs written on me
is not calligraphy, but departure. “
— A new poem up in Queen Mob’s Tea House.
My dreams have taken flight
I have not.
should you come upon them,
hold them close
hold them tight
for you are one of them.
