Priya Chirantan Hai Sajani
       priy chirantan hai sajani,
              kShaN kShaN naveen suhaaginee main!

shvaas men mujhako chhipaa kar vah aseem vishaal chir ghan,
shoony men jab chhaa gayaa usakee sajeelee saadh-saa ban,
       chhip kahaa(n) usamen sakee
              bujh-bujh jalee chal daaminee main!

chhaa(n)h ko usakee sajani nav aavaraN apanaa banaa kar,
dhooli men nij ashru bone main pahar soone bitaa kar,
       praat men ha(n)s chhip gaee
              le chhalakate dRg yaaminee main!

milan-mandir men uThaa doo(n) jo sumukh se sajal guNThan,
main miToo(n) priy men miTaa jyon tapt sikataa men salil-kaN,
       sajani madhur nijatv de
              kaise miloo(n) abhimaaninee main!

deep-see yug-yug jaloo(n) par vah subhag itanaa bataa de,
phoo(n)k se usakee bujhoo(n) tab kShaar hee meraa pataa de!
       vah rahe aaraadhy chinmay
              mRNmayee anuraaginee main!

sajal seemit putaliyaa(n) par chitr amiT aseem kaa vah,
chaah vah anant basatee praaN kintu saseem saa yah,
       raj-kaNon men khelatee kis
              viraj vidhu kee chaa(n)danee main?

'Chal Pathik Tu Haule Se'
Priya N. Iyer


Tahal rahaa gar bhor se pahale
pag too rakhanaa dheere se
jage hue hain jeev-jantu
maanav tumase pahale se

kharagosh, keeT aur khag nikale
neeḌ, bil, kunD se khul ke
chanchal abodh chhaune sang
chalee hiran nirbhayataa  se

चलो समय के साथ चलेंगे,
परिवर्तन होगा धरती पर।
नया ज़माना पैदा होगा,
बूढ़ी दुनिया की अर्थी पर।

जो कुछ हम पर बीत चुकी है,
उस से मुक्त रहो, ओ नवयुग।
नए नए फूलों से महको,
मेरे मधुवन, जीयो जुग जुग।

~ विनोद तिवारी की कविता "मेरे मधुवन" का अंश संकलन "समर्पित सत्य समर्पित स्वप्न" से
