नमस्कार मित्रों। आज मैं आपके लिये एक हिन्दी कविता लाया हूँ। मैं अभी देवनागरी में type करना सीख रहा हूँ इसलिये कृपया मेरी गलतियों को क्षमा करें। आशा है आपको कविता पसन्द आये। सूर्य आखिर सूर्य जागा है। • आखिर सूर्य जागा है,घोर अँधियारा हमने लाँघा है।उषा की लालिमा छाई है,हमने फिर खुशहाली पाई है।Continue reading “सूर्य (Translation Below)”
Drink icy moonlight,Carried by celestial winds,On the snowy night.
I travelled to places far,And saw as far as went my sight.Despite this wait of many hours,I found no end to this plight. I heard the speech of many a man,Which gave peace to all but me,And say this for sure I can,I still didn’t find any glee. I tasted many a herb,many glories toContinue reading “Search for Truth”
Fiery lights embedded in the infinity,Reminiscent of forgotten memories.Of days long gone, the light of which is yet to reach.The glow has traversed dimensions, To bring us back hope.Years from now, looking into the bottomless pit, We shall see the light. -Ishaan
Rein in the wild horses, or their own path they shall find,Conquer your senses, or they shall conquer your mind. -Ishaan
Sometimes if you lookJust a step deeper, evenThe darkness glows brightyet blinded by inner dark,we choose not to seek the truth. -Ishaan So this is my first Tanka everyone! Tell me what you think!

Absence of Virtue,is the source of all Evil.Candles kill the Dark.
He was there always,watching all your steps; yet Younever asked for help.
Now the Sun goes downand We grieve over that WhichWe never cherished.
Oh now the sword bleeds! Drips down the dark blood. Oh there go all the valiant deeds, The warrior is lowered into the mud. . It remembers the fiery chambers, The torturous furnace, The flying embers, It was forged in the gloomy days. . It remembers when it the warrior chose to wield, Gave itContinue reading “The Sword Bleeds”

If you can’t give the lantern kerosene, don’t ask It to give you light.
