naisaiku week 15

[ echoes of indian poetry - 8]

" dekh to dil ke jaaN se uthta hai , yeh dhuaN-sa kahaaN se uthta hai " .. Meer Taqi Meer

where does it come from
is it from this life oh heart
SOARS SOMETHING SMOKEY
( oh heart , is my life burning )
something like smoke , soars..~ Meer Taqi Meer.

( Meer Taqi Meer..~ urdu poetry - legend )

/ naisaiku / translation / z.g.©


the children squabble
but patch up in a jiffy
THAT'S THE WAY TO GO
so patch up in a jiffy
squabble like children ..

Hello Zoya~ Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. I love the naisaiku you wrote about children. It's so true how children can squabble and get over it easily. If only grown ups could do the same. Hope all is well. Have a nice day.
