सफ़र

देश विदेश का सफ़र
और भी ख़ूबसूरत 
बना देता है
ज़िंदगी के सफ़रनामे को
अनकहे ही 
बहुत कुछ सिखा भी जाता है
वे विशालकाय बर्फ़ से ढके
पर्वतों के शिखर
वे विस्तृत सागर
रेगिस्तान में हवा के साथ
पल पल सरकते रेतीले टीले
अहसास दिला जाते हैं
कि इंसान कितना बौना है
इस विशाल प्रकृति के समक्ष
पुरातन मंदिर और गिरजे
महल और चौबारे
सदियों से खड़े हैं
अडिग
इंसान की ज़िन्दगी 
कितनी क्षणभंगुर है
पर इन सबके ऊपर है
इस सबको रचने वाला
जिसे सुन सकते हैं
किसी मन्दिर या गिरजे में
घंटियों की ध्वनि के मध्य
महसूस कर सकते हैं
रेगिस्तान को गुलज़ार करते
बंजारों और ऊँटों के बीच
या रेगिस्तान की ठंडी रात में
कालबेलिया नृत्य की लय में
किसी पुरातन देवालय की
सरसराती हवा में
अगरबत्ती की ख़ुश्बू में
या देवालय में जलते
दीपक की लौ में
वही तो है जगतगुरु
वही तो है
सबका परमपिता
सबका परमात्मा ।

कण , कण में भगवान् | यह सब उसी की माया ही तो है | बूँद जो बन गई मोती की यह पंक्तियाँ भी कुछ ऐसा ही कहती हैं ;-

कुदरत की इस पवित्रता को तुम निहार लो
इनके गुणों को अपने मन में तुम उतार लो  चमका दो आज लालिमा
चमका दो आज लालिमा अपने ललाट की
कण कण से झनकती तुम्हीं छबी विराट की
अपनी तो आँख एक है,  इसकी हज़ार है

ये कौन चित्रकार है ये कौन चित्रकार
