Yearning : Haiku







                                                                                  necks arched poised for flight
                                                                                     wings are trapped in white marble 
                                                                                     the soul is free light


                                                                                    perched atop high walls
                                                                                    yearns to soar high in blue skies
                                                                                    a heart caged in stone

  2. "Yearns heart caged in stone" beautifully portrays the plight of mute stones. You have those keen ears which could sense beating hearts in flinty rocks. Beautiful indeed. :)

  3. How well you relate Kokila!
    I just knew the history of it, took the pictures and came away. To relate to it poetically is incredible.

    1. Exactly! Considering her heart to be too stunned to feel anything except being stuck at that one desire, that one moment where it stopped and turned in to a stone! And like the decorations of these cranes, she too was honoured as one of the Pratah smarneeya panch kanyah!

मिथ्या तेरे सब बोल मधुर
सच्चा मेरा तीखा कटाक्ष
मलयानिल जैसी शीतल मैं
तेरा मन जलता वन पलाश

मैं मौन प्रणय का गुह्य गीत
तुम निर्झर के स्वर से कल कल
मैं धीर धरा सी लीकबद्ध
तुम मेघों सा उड़ते अविरल

निर्जन मन की निष्कम्प शिखा
उत्सव का दीप प्रकाशित तुम
मैं आम्रकुंज की कुहू कोकिल
सुर-ताल छंद परिभाषित तुम

में स्वतः स्फूर्त प्रकृति पूर्ण
तुम कठिन परिश्रम से अर्जित
मैं बंकिम भ्रू का अल्हड़ विलास
तुम पांडित्यपूर्ण चंदन चर्चित

यूँ भिन्न दिखाई देते हैं
सच में लेकिन है भिन्न नहीं
लगते जो उलट विरोधी हैं
रचते जीवन संगीत वही।

सृष्टि के नित संचालन के
सुंदर ये सारे  सृजन चिन्ह
लगते हैं अलग-अलग से पर
शिव-शक्ति से ये हैं अभिन्न।

                                   डॉयरी के पन्नों में, 
                                   कोयल ने फिर कुहुक लगाई
                                   लम्हे लहराते से आये,
                                    सुधियों ने ले ली अँगड़ाई
                                    अस्फुट शब्दों की छवियां
                                    मन की वीणा पर जा इठलायीं                                       विस्मृत स्मृतियों ने आ-आ कर,
                                    मन द्वारे पर अलख जगायी।
                                     स्वप्न-मेघ को चली बांधने,

                                    देख ठिठोली बाल सुलभ ये,
                                    धूप मधुर मधुरिम मुस्कायी।
                                    बूढ़े बरगद पर चिड़ियों ने,

Bringing Down the House : Review

'Bringing down the house' stars my two favs Steve martin and Queen Latifah :) so expectations were high ...only to be crashed again.

 A story idea with potential which turned out half baked as too many ingredients like the  Victorian attitude, the nanny-thing,blind -date-backfire, kids-need-attention, still in much love ex-couple ingredient....and many more.Different natures of these ingredients prevented the dish to bake fully. Alas! an amazing star cast but a moderate product. 
The most it will do is just bring down your expectations .
Still U can give it a try :)
Mostly for the sake of the lead pair which certainly shows sparks in this otherwise lack lustre film.
