Mere Deepak
     madhur madhur mere deepak jal!
yug yug pratidin pratikShaN pratipal;
   priyatam kaa path aalokit kar!

     saurabh phailaa vipul dhoop ban;
     mRdul mom-saa ghul re mRdu tan;
           de prakaash kaa sindhu aparimit,
           tere jeevan kaa aNu gal-gal!
pulak-pulak mere deepak jal!

     saare sheetal komal nootan,
     maa(n)g rahe tujhako jvaalaa-kaN;
           vishvashalabh sir dhun kahataa "main
           haay n jal paayaa tujhamen mil"!
sihar-sihar mere deepak jal!

     jalate nabh men dekh asankhyak;
     snehaheen nit kitane deepak;
           jalamay saagar kaa ur jalataa;
           vidyut le ghirataa hai baadal!
vihans-vihans mere deepak jal!

     drum ke ang harit komalatam,
     jvaalaa ko karate hRdayangam;
           vasudhaa ke jaḌ antar men bhee,
           bandee naheen hai taapon kee halachal!
bikhar-bikhar mere deepak jal!

     mere nishvaason se drutatar,
     subhag n too bujhane kaa bhay kar;
           main anchal kee oT kiye hoo(n),
           apanee mRdu palakon se chanchal!
sahaj-sahaj mere deepak jal!

     seemaa hee laghutaa kaa bandhan,
     hai anaadi too mat ghaḌiyaa(n) gin;
           main dRg ke akShay koshon se -
           tujhamen bharatee hoo(n) aa(n)soo-jal!
sajal-sajal mere deepak jal!

     tam aseem teraa prakaash chir;
     khelenge nav khel nirantar;
           tam ke aNu-aNu men vidyut saa -
           amiT chitr ankit karataa chal!
saral-saral mere deepak jal!

     too jal jal hotaa jitanaa kShay;
     vah sameep aataa chhalanaamay;
           madhur milan men miT jaanaa too -
           usakee ujjaval smit men ghul-khil!
madir-madir mere deepak jal!

     priyatam kaa path aalokit kar!

'Geet Koyee Kasamasaataa'
Anita Nihalani


neel nabh ke paar koee
mand svar men gunagunaataa,
rooh kee gaharaaiyon men
geet koee kasamasaataa!

nirjharon saa kab bahegaa
sang Khushaboo ke uḌegaa,
jangalon kaa maun neerav
baarishon kee dhun bharegaa!

'Suprabhaat'
Prabhakar Shukla


nayan kaa nayan se, naman ho rahaa hai
lo uShaa kaa aagaman ho rahaa hai
parat par parat, chaandanee kaT rahee hai
tabhee to nishaa kaa, gaman ho rahaa hai
kShitij par abhee bhee hain, alasaaye sapane
palak khol kar bhee, shayan ho rahaa hai
jharokhon se praachee kee pahalee kiraN kaa
lahar se pratham aachaman ho rahaa hai
hain nahalaa raheen, har kalee ko tuShaaren
lagan poorv kitanaa jatan ho rahaa hai
vahee shaakh par pakShiyon kaa hai kalarav
prabhaateesaa lekin, sahan ho rahaa hai
baḌhee jaa rahee jis tarah se aruNimaa
hai lagataa kaheen par havan ho rahaa hai
madhur mukt aabhaa, sugandhit pavan hai
naye din kaa kaisaa sRjan ho rahaa hai.
