short pieces - random, aise hi..

Autumn Trees

Ikebana

Of the Gods
****************
Girl
Born to be
Banyan
Crafted into
Bonsai.

*********************

Your Love
More bitter
More lethal
Than the poison cup
Handed out to me.
And the world wonders
Why
Meera
Did not die.
********************
सांवरे का  बिरहा
विष से कड़वा
ज्यादा  पीड़ादायी
अधिक प्राणघाती
और दुनिया सोचे
राणा  जी के प्याले से
मीरा क्यूँ न मरी?
