A moment of happiness,

you and I sitting on the verandah,

apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.

We feel the flowing water of life here,

you and I, with the garden’s beauty . and the birds singing.

The stars will be watching us,

and we will show them

what it is to be a thin crescent moon.

You and I unselfed, will be together,

indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.

The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar

as we laugh together, you and I.

In one form upon this earth,

and in another form in a timeless sweet land.

Rumi ❤️

  1. मर्मस्पर्शी पंक्तियां हैं रेखा जी ये । तलत महमूद जी और आशा भोसले जी का गाया हुआ दिल की गहराई में उतर जाने वाला एक बहुत पुराना दोगाना याद आ गया :

    दो दिल धड़क रहे हैं और आवाज़ एक है
    नग़मे जुदा-जुदा हैं मगर साज़ एक है

    रंगीन हर अदा है, बेचैन हर नज़र है
    इक दर्द सा इधर है, इक दर्द सा उधर है
    दोनों की बेक़रारी का अंदाज़ एक है

    तड़पाइये न हमको, शरमाइये न हमसे
    दोनों की ज़िंदगी है इक-दूसरे के दम से
    हम दो कहानियाँ हैं मगर राज़ एक है
