Reena’s Exploration Challenge #64

rec-64-prompt

 

घर वापसी

मन कभी वहां था ही  नहीं जहाँ इसे होना चाहिए था

शरीर के अंदर रह कर उसे सही राह दिखाना और  हुए मंज़िल की ओर ले जाना

पर नहीं उसे तो हर सवाल का जवाब चाहिए था

प्रकृति के सारे रहस्य उसे जानना था

उसी खोज में न जाने कहाँ कहाँ भटका कितनी जगहों की खाक़  छानी

पर कुछ मिला क्या

वही कुत्ते की तरह अपनी  ही दुम  के पीछे भागने के सिवाय

कुछ भी हासिल हुआ क्या

सब कुछ यहीं  था

आँखों के सामने

अपने सम्पूर्ण सौंदर्य में

छिपता, दिखाता , ढंकता, उभरता

ललकारता

पा सको  तो पालो मुझको

मैं तो यही हूँ तुम्हारे भीतर

बस पारखी नज़र होनी चाहिए

मुझसे ही चूक हो गयी

” जिन खोजा  तिन पाइयाँ , गहरे पानी पैठ,

मैं बैरन ऐसी डरी , रही किनारे बैठ। ”

और अब ,

हर सुबह पूछती है,आज नया करने को कुछ है क्या?

हर रात पूछती है,आज क्या किया,

मन है की भटकाता रहता है

कभी कहता है यह करो,कभी कहता है वह करो ,
स्थिर नहीं रहने देता
यह भटकाव क्यों है?
सब कुछ मिल के भी लगता है अभी कुछ पाना बाकि है ,
वह कुछ क्या है यह भी समझ नहीं आता.
क्या यही भटकना ही मेरी नियति है ?
एक बंजारे की तरह 
या मुझे भी एक ठाँव, 
ठहरन मिलेगी ?
कभी मेरी घर वापसी होगी,
जैसी एक बच्चे की होती है 
माँ की गोद में ?
Reena has translated this poem in English, such a wonderful translation, better than the original.
English translation-
The heart is never where it should have been – inside the body, giving directions to reach the destination. But it seeks answers to all questions, wants to know secrets of Nature, and keeps wandering around for that – with zero results. The quest is similar to a dog chasing its own tail.
Everything is right here – hiding, showing, covering, rising and challenging – from the depths of the Self — Nurture me if you can. I’m here if you care enough to look.
I admit I was wrong.
The seekers found wisdom in depths of the ocean
I was my own enemy – to stay on the shore.
And now …
dawn looks for something new
dusk evaluates the day
the heart wanders ….
Do This or That
Why can’t you stay still
  • nomadic heart!
Have all, yet something’s not there
what is that which goes amiss?
O, fluctuating destiny!
Will my gypsy soul ….
find a destination?
my homecoming –
like that of an infant
returning to mother’s bosom
