The thread of ice...


मै वक़्त हूँ, हरपल बहता हूँ,
हाँ रोज़ बदलता रहता हूँ  

लम्हा हूँ मगर,

जम सकता हूँ 
तेरी रूह में हिम -चादर बनके...
रफ़्तार हूँ पर, 
थम सकता हूँ 
तुझमे मै तेरी आदत बनके... 

मै धागा हूँ, 

जुड़ सकता हूँ
हाँ वक़्त हूँ मै ,
पगडंडी सा, 
मुड़ सकता हूँ
हाथों में दिखाई दे जाऊँ...
आँखों में सुनाई दे जाऊं..

मै साथ रहूँ और साथ नहीं 

मै हूँ भी नहीं, और हूँ भी कहीं... 
मै कौन हूँ, कैसा लगता हूँ?
मै नींद हूँ, फिर क्यों जगता हूँ
हूँ बर्फ हूँ तो क्यों सुलगता हूँ?
मैं धागा हूँ जुड़ सकता हूँ... 
  
Like time, I flow.
Like time, I am changing every day.
I am a thread of ice- the thread of time

Ephemeral, like the moments we shared
But I can also freeze infinitely
covering your soul
like these mountains covered in permanent snowline
white, pristine, limpid, yet cold.

Swift, like the velocity we moved with
But I can also pause indefinitely
forming a niche in you
like habit or proclivity.

I am a thread of ice- the thread of time
I can connect, coalesce, unite
Yet, like time I melt away.
But, if time bends, like these roads we travel on
You will see me, smiling in your palms
You will hear me humming your name, from some dimension in your eyes;
and You will be able to touch me with your thoughts...

I'm there with You, and yet elusive.
May be I do not exist, but I still am somewhere.
Who am I, how do I appear to your senses?
If I am a dream, then why do I stay awake?
If I am cold, frozen in time, then what in me still burns?

I am a thread of ice- the thread of time
I can connect, coalesce, unite
Yet, like time I melt away.
But time bends, like these roads we travel on
One day, You will see me, smiling in your palms
You will hear me humming your name,from some dimension in your eyes
and I will be able to touch your thoughts, your dreams...
