यादों की पोटलियां

This poem bagged the second position in an event conducted by Pen and Writers

यादों की पोटलियां

जाने वाले चले जाते हैं
पर छोड़ जाते हैं
अपने पीछे
यादों की पोटलियां
खुल जाती हैं
यहाँ वहाँ हर जगह
कभी भी कहीं भी
वक़्त बेवक्त
और
तैरने लगती हैं
यादों की परछाइयाँ
किसी अपने की
डबडबाई सी
पर मुस्कुराती आँखों में

सपनों में
आते हैं मिलने कभी वे
यादों की
कुछ भारी सी पोटलियाँ
धर जाते हैं छाती पर
और छोड़ जाते हैं
रोता हुआ दिल
और बरसती आँखें

Alka you write beautifully ..
Keep on posting your poems ..I love to read these…experiences close to heart …voiced so well…we all miss our near and dear ones who leave a void never to be filled .

But they are in us..
Your mother’s poetry has blossomed in you ..and now it is taking shape in Ridhima.

This is life

यादों की पोटलियाँ हमारी,
समेटी यादें जिन में मैंने, मेरी-तुम्हारी, ढेर सारी,
संभलती ही कहाँ है मुझ से अकेले 
अह-रह खुल ही जाती हैं
बिखर जाती हैं तस्वीरें सारी,
और एक- एक कर करती हूँ मैं उन्हें फिर से इकट्ठा,
दुप्पट्टे से पोंछती हूँ, निहारती हूँ
हाथ से छूती हूँ, संवारती हूँ 
लबों से चूमती हूँ और
उभरी याद को फिर से बहला कर
मन की गहराईओं में उतारती हूँ,
साँसों के सहारे, कि बिखरे चित्र सारे,
मुझे भी, मुझे भी, कह ध्यान खींचने लगते हैं मेरा
और मैं सब को समेट लेती हूँ
अपने आँचल में लपेट लेती हूँ
बाँध देती हूँ फिर से यादों की पोटली मैं
दिल को फिर से उसे खोलने का आश्वासन देती हूँ कल का 
कुछ कांपते होटों से मनाती हूँ उसे 
और कुछ भरोसा दिलाती हूँ
आँखों से प्रदर्शन कर जल का…. Just dwelt a bit on your thought. Will write more and Post it separately
