आख़िर क्यों लिखती हूँ

ख़्याल- तितलियाँ है.
आँखों से ओंझल होते ही
कायनात में समा जाती है.

वक़्त की धार जब सबकुछ बहा ले जाती है
इन बिखरे शब्दो के जाल में
आँसू और मुस्कान-
कुछ छाप छोड़ जाते है.
गुनगुनाने के लिए उम्र भर.

दिल रोता है तो हमेशा
आँसू ही नहीं बहते.
कुछ और भी है.

खुश होने के लिए मौके
कल्पनाओं में भी मिल जाते हैं
कभी कभी.

शायद लिखने भर से हीं
सुकून सा कुछ मिल जाता हैं
रूह को जीने के लिए.

  1. Beautiful poem, Preetilata! I love how you wove the positive in it.

    My favorite verse is:

    खुश होने के लिए मौके
    कल्पनाओं में भी मिल जाते हैं
    कभी कभी.

    So true for all of us. Thank you for sharing. It is a long time since I read Hindi poetry online...Hugs!

    So true. Certain memories are like that. :)

    P.S : I didn't get this line "शायद लिखने भर से हीं "

    1. "शायद लिखने भर से हीं "

      Jyothi I tried to convey that 'perhaps by writing...'

      Thank you so much.

  16. Tumhare ye shabd -- meri sooch ki seema langh rahain hai... ehsas ki dor kheench rahai hain.... aur maan mein deer tak yunhi tehel rahehain.....aur kabhi...kabhi.... dimak ki dahlij ko halke se khat khata ke... wapus laut rahe hain....
