Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

पहली बारिश – First Rains

rain

पहली बारिश की छींटे जब पड़े, सूखी धरती पर मानो अमृत बरसे

काली घटा छाए घनघोर, पवन जब मचाये शोर

रिमझिम रिमझिम जब तू बरसे, कानो में बजती शहनाई,

मिटटी की वो सौंधी महक, नीरस तन में भर दे  खुशियों की लहर,

पत्तियों की खामोश सरसराहट ,  फूलों का झिलमिल लहराना

मोर बाग में पंख फैलाये, और कोयल अपनी कूक सुनाये

तेरे आँचल तले सारी दुनिया चहक उठी !

 

तेरे आगमन से,

किसान के खेतो में ,फसल झूम उठे

कवि तेरे तारीफ में एक सुन्दर रचना रचे

चित्रकार अपनी मन की कल्पना में तुझे उतारे

तुझसे प्रेरित ,  संगीतकार  ने  एक नयी राग छेडी

प्रेमियों के भीगे बदन , महसूस करते कुछ अनकही बातें

मन उल्हास से भर, कोई धुन गुनगुनाता है,

चारों ओर ख़ुशी की बौछार छाए

हे बरखा ! तू ऋतुओ की रानी है.

 

First Rains

The first drops of rain seem like nectar to the parched earth

Dark clouds are formed as the winds roar

Your pitter patter drops sound musical to the ears

The fragrance of the first drops of rain, fill the barren mind with waves of euphoria

You usher in the silent movement of the leaves and the gentle swaying of the flowers

The peacock showcases its plumes and the cuckoo sings away to glory

The entire world revels under your benevolent grace!

 

On the onset of monsoon,

The crops in the fields dance in gay abandon

The poet composes a beautiful ode in your honour

The artist’s imaginations paints an alluring picture of your beauty

You inspire the musician to compose a soothing melody

Soaking in the rain, the lovers indulge in ecstatic moments of passion

With sheer happiness, the mind hums a soft tune

The rainfall sets a jubilant mood all around

O monsoon! You are the queen of all seasons!

 

Inspired by the first rainfall  of the season, we had here this morning 🙂

    बहुत सुन्दर वर्णन—-
    सच में वर्षा ऋतुओं की रानी है,
    इसके वगैर जिंदगी बेमानी है।
