चंद सवाल, पाब्लो नेरुदा से

Inspired by the ‘Book of Questions’, Pablo Neruda
(widely regarded as the greatest poet of the 20th Century, in any language)
क्या पहाड़ों के उस तरफ
घने जंगल में –
जहाँ रात को घुप अँधेरा होता है –
दिन निकलने के बाद भी
अंधेरा होता होगा ?
अगर कोई जगह खालीपन से
लबालब भर जाए –
इतनी, कि कुछ और के लिए
जगह ही न बचे –
तो भी क्या उसे खाली कहेंगे ?
अगर आंसुओं की स्याही से
कविता लिखी जाए –
उदास मगर खूबसूरत –
तो लिखने वाले के अलावा कोई और
पढ़ सकेगा क्या ?
दोपहरें खाली हो तो समझा
कि शामें उदास क्यूँ होती हैं,
पर बारिश से भीगे दिन में
बूंदों से भरी साँझ
और भी उदास क्यूँ होती है ?
और एक छोटी सी बात और –
तुम नहीं जानोगे तो भला
और कौन जानेगा पाब्लो –
कविता का रंग
क्या अकसर ही उदास होता है ?

    For average readers, by the time the poem sinks in and we start appreciating the deep nuances of your writing, we get 2 more poems to ponder upon. Not that we complain, but you are writing at a speed with which we (the average readers) fail to match in reading/understanding/appreciating.

      Dear Namesake… I blame your pondering on your own creative mind.. So as a reader, the credit is absolutely yours. The pleasure, however, of having such an appreciating and understanding reader is totally mine… Keep reading.. You feedback is very encouraging…
