kaalidaas! sach-sach batalaanaa
indumatee ke mRtyushok se
aj royaa yaa tum roye the ?
kaalidaas! sach-sach batalaanaa |
shivajee kee teesaree aa(n)kh se,
nikalee huee mahaajvaalaa men,
ghRtamishrit sookhee samidhaa-sam
kaamadev jab bhasm ho gayaa,
rati kaa krandan sun aa(n)soo se
tumane hee to dRg dhoye the -
kaalidaas! sach-sach batalaanaa
rati royee yaa tum roye the ?

varShaa Rtu kee snigdh bhoomikaa
pratham divas aaShaaDh़ maas kaa
dekh gagan men shyaam ghan-ghaTaa
vidhur yakSh kaa man jab uchaTaa,
khaḌe-khaḌe tab haath joD़kar
chitrakooT ke subhag shikhar par
us bechaare ne bhejaa thaa
jinake hee dvaaraa sandeshaa,
un puShkaraavart meghon kaa
saathee banakar uD़nevaale -
kaalidaas! sach-sach batalaanaa
par peeḌaa se poor-poor ho
thak-thak kar au choor-choor ho
amal-dhaval giri ke shikharon par
priyavar! tum kab tak soye the?
royaa yakSh ki tum roye the?
kaalidaas! sach-sach batalaanaa |
- Nagarjun

Bhawaniprasad Mishra


akkaD़ makkaD़, dhool men dhakkaD़,
donon moorakh, donon akkhaD़,
haaT se lauTe, ThaaTh se lauTe,
ek saath ek baaT se lauTe.

baat-baat men baat Than gayee,
baanh uTheen aur moochhen tan gayeen.

वो मेरी जिंदगी में कुछ इस तरह मिले
जैसे छोटी सी छत पर कोई बड़ी पतंग गिरे।
बारहा अब यही डर सताता रहता है के
वक़्त का शैतान बच्चा मुझसे इसे छीन न ले।
