जाते जाते

हिमबिंदु का जाते जाते
रवि किरणों  से होना झिलमिल
सुरभित कर जाता है जग को
जाने से पहले मलयानिल

 दीपक की लौ में प्रेम - शलभ
गाता  विदग्ध होने से पूर्व
तारक दल मिटने से पहले
आलोक-चित्र रचता अपूर्व

ढलते- ढलते  संध्या नभ का
स्वर्णिम कण -कण कर जाती है
झरने से पहले पुष्पलता
विहँस-विहँस इठलाती है

 मेरे  लघु जीवन में किन्तु
अनुपम नहीं  बिम्ब कोई ऐसा
साधारणता  से सज्जित यह,
प्रतिपल बुझती लौ  के जैसा

जीवन के रंगमंच पर जब
अंतिम उत्सव की हो बेला
मेरे जीवन की असफलताओं से
तुम पाठ सफलता पढ़ लेना

मुझ मूढ़मति की चूकों पर
हंस, कर लेना मन को उन्मन
नहीं निधि अन्य बस, भाव-सुमन
स्वीकार करो इनका अर्पण


There's no life which is wasted . Even those considered  unsuccessful are lessons in what not to sow ! 
There's no such thing as dearth. We all have a little compassion to bestow!
There's no such thing as sorrow unless we want it to be . Even love un-returned has its own rainbow !


हिमबिंदु - dewdrops ,  मलयानिल - scented breeze from the Malay Mountains  , शलभ  - moth,  मूढ़मति - silly, stupid ,  उन्मन -   lively

Har baar jab kavita tumhari padhti hoon, prerit ho bohot kuch seekhti hoon, uske saath hi ek uttejna jag jaati hai.....achha likhne ki bhavna phir se jag jaati hai...you are my inspiration to write in Hindi :) its so beautifully written bestie and more than that its the thought that a poetess can have which then weaves through words to make it a soulful creation. I bow to you :)
