         saa(n)s chalatee hai tujhe
         chalanaa paḌegaa hee musaaphir!

chal rahaa hai taarakon kaa
dal gagan men geet gaataa,
chal rahaa aakaash bhee hai
shoony men bhramataa-bhramaataa,
                 paa(n)v ke neeche paḌee
                 achalaa naheen, yah chanchalaa hai,
ek kaN bhee, ek kShaN bhee
ek thal par Tik n paataa,
                 shaktiyaa(n) gati kee tujhe
                 sab or se ghere hue hai;
                 sthaan se apane tujhe
                 Talanaa paḌegaa hee, musaaphir!
         saa(n)s chalatee hai tujhe
         chalanaa paḌegaa hee musaaphir!

the jahaa(n) par gart pairon
ko zamaanaa hee paḌaa thaa,
pattharon se paa(n)v ke
chhaale chhilaanaa hee paḌaa thaa,
                 ghaas makhamal-see jahaa(n) thee
                 man gayaa thaa loT sahasaa,
thee ghanee chhaayaa jahaa(n) par
tan juḌaanaa hee paḌaa thaa,
                 pag pareekShaa, pag pralobhan
                 zor-kamazoree bharaa too
                 is taraph DaTanaa udhar
                 Dhalanaa paḌegaa hee, musaaphir;
         saa(n)s chalatee hai tujhe
         chalanaa paḌegaa hee musaaphir!

shool kuchh aise, pago men
chetanaa kee sphoorti bharate,
tez chalane ko vivash
karate, hameshaa jabaki gaḌate,
                 shukriyaa unakaa ki ve
                 path ko rahe prerak banaae,
kintu kuchh aise ki rukane
ke lie majaboor karate,
                 aur jo utsaah kaa
                 dete kalejaa cheer, aise
                 kanTakon kaa dal tujhe
                 dalanaa paḌegaa hee, musaaphir;
         saa(n)s chalatee hai tujhe
         chalanaa paḌegaa hee musaaphir!

soory ne ha(n)sanaa bhulaayaa,
chandramaa ne muskuraanaa,
aur bhoolee yaaminee bhee
taarikaaon ko jagaanaa,
                 ek jhonke ne bujhaayaa
                 haath kaa bhee deep lekin
mat banaa isako pathik too
baiTh jaane kaa bahaanaa,
                 ek kone men hRday ke
                 aag tere jag rahee hai,
                 dekhane ko mag tujhe
                 jalanaa paḌegaa hee, musaaphir;
         saa(n)s chalatee hai tujhe
         chalanaa paḌegaa hee musaaphir!

vah kaThin path aur kab
usakee museebat bhoolatee hai,
saa(n)s usakee yaad karake
bhee abhee tak phoolatee hai;
                 yah manuj kee veerataa hai
                 yaa ki usakee behayaaee,
saath hee aashaa sukhon kaa
svapn lekar jhoolatee hai
                 saty sudhiyaa(n), jhooTh shaayad
                 svapn, par chalanaa agar hai,
                 jhooTh se sach ko tujhe
                 chhalanaa paḌegaa hee, musaaphir;
         saa(n)s chalatee hai tujhe
         chalanaa paḌegaa hee musaaphir!

Divya Omkari 'Garima'


jhar-jhar bahate netron se,
kaun saa saty bahaa hogaa?
vo saty banaa aakhir paanee,
jo kaheen naheen kahaa hogaa.

jhalakatee see bechainee ko,
kitanaa dhikkaar milaa hogaa?
baad men soche hai insaan,
pahale andhaa-baharaa hogaa.

talaash kare yaa aas kare,
kis par vishvaas zaraa hogaa?
kitanaa gaharaa hogaa vo dukh,
mRtyu se jo Dhakaa hogaa.

hokar nam phir band ho gaeen,
aa(n)khon ne kyaa sahaa hogaa?
ho jisakaa kShaN-kShaN mRtyu,
ye jeevan deergh lagaa hogaa.

jo maun huaa sah-sahakar maun,
us maun kaa bhed kyaa hogaa?
n gyaat kisee ko bhed vo ab,
vo bhed jo saath gayaa hogaa.

kuchh sheSh naheen isake pashchaat,

'Jo Hawaa Mein Hai'
Umashankar Tiwari


jo havaa men hai, lahar men hai
kyon naheen vah baat
mujhamen hai?

shaam kandhon par lie apane
zindagee ke roo-b-roo chalanaa
roshanee kaa hamasafar honaa
umr kee kandeel kaa jalanaa
aag jo
jalate safar men...

nek bane manuShy
udaar aur bhalaa;
kyonki yahee ek cheej़ hai
jo use alag karatee hai
un sabhee jeevit praaNiyon se
jinhen ham jaanate hain.

svaagat hai apnee...

होलोकॉस्ट में एक कविता
~ प्रियदर्शन

लेकिन इस कंकाल सी लड़की के भीतर एक कविता बची हुई थी-- मनुष्य के विवेक पर आस्था रखने वाली एक कविता। वह देख रही थी कि अमेरिकी सैनिक वहाँ पहुँच रहे हैं। इनमें सबसे आगे कर्ट क्लाइन था। उसने उससे पूछा कि वह जर्मन या अंग्रेजी कुछ बोल सकती है? गर्डा बताती है कि वह 'ज्यू' है। कर्ट क्लाइन बताता है कि वह भी 'ज्यू' है। लेकिन उसे सबसे ज़्यादा यह बात हैरानी में डालती है कि इसके बाद गर्डा जर्मन कवि गेटे (Goethe) की कविता 'डिवाइन' की एक पंक्ति बोलती है...
