The Ice That Never Melted After Him

Late Daya Shanker Mishra

The Style Symphony

मेरे लफ़्ज़ों में अब भी वो ख़लिश बाक़ी है, कि उफ़ भी करूँ तो पिघलता है फ़लक. डूबती शाम का अब भी वो पहर बाक़ी है, कि गर्द-ए-रहगुज़र घबराकर जाती है ठिठक. उम्र-ए-दरिया में अब भी वो लहर बाक़ी है, वक़्त की रेत पे छोड़े जो निशां दूर तलक. उनकी बेरुख़ी की अब भी वो सज़ा बाक़ी है, काश वो रोये ज़ार-ज़ार, लिए दिल में कसक. बात-ही-बात में निकले, अब भी वो बात बाक़ी है, अनकही बेतुकी बातों में है जीने का ...

She, The Beautiful

raja ravi verma painting

She draped the cloak of darkly sky Embellished with sequins of her sigh She honed the art of looking good Snubbed dissonance as much she could All she dolled up to sheathe her soul And she looked so beautiful. She wrapped a cashmere of memories Warps from caskets, wefts from dairies Spun on the looms of dreadful days Woven in the nights in murky ways Her chilled carcass turned fanciful Ah! She looked so beautiful. She put ill-lit sky in ... Read More »
