Moth On My Fingertips

A hidden boy saw the world with
Big eyes, cherishing every sight.
He dreamt of a symphony of
Every note he caught from the air.

I delighted in him till the moment
Moth rested on my fingertips, and
With him flew away my nostalgia.

The Nothingness

Sense by sense,
Limb by limb,
Thought by thought,
How cleverly we emerge out of the nothingness.

Senses to knowledge,
Knowledge to wisdom,
Wisdom to intellect.
Only an intuition remains of the nothingness.

Ink or blood,
Coarse or shrill,
Past or future,
Nothing does capture the nothingness.

Moment by moment,
Ounce by ounce,
Step by step,
We are journeying into the nothingness.

Dil ki kharoch ko kuredte rahe,
Aankhon se aansu nichodte rahe.
Haseen labon pe le aate rahe,
Pair anjaan rastoon pe jaate rahe.

Tasavvur mein jeene ki firaq mein 'besabr',
Zindagi, yeh zindagi yun hi zayaa karte rahe.
