Today, September 14th, is Hindi Diwas and what could be a better day to start posting my Hindi poems that I wrote when I was a kid. I used to write poems only in Hindi when I started and this one was written perhaps when I was 15 year old. Growing up in a desert, perhaps made me value rain and greenery a little more and a little differently. A good rainfall for even half hour was like a celebration and this poem was written to celebrate a really good spell of rain after 5 long years of drought! My Hindi vocabulary wasn’t that great so it might sound childish. However, I will still hope that you find the same joy that I felt during that rainfall and enjoy the poem too! 😀

बरखा

उमड़-घुमड़ आए रे बदरा,
मन में प्यास जगाएँ,
बरखा के मीठे पानी की,
फिर से आस जगाएँ।

घन-घन घन-घन घन-घन गरजें,
शोर मधुर ये मचाएँ,
वातावरण आलोकित कर दें,
दामिनी यूँ ये गिराएँ।

दामिनी यूँ लगती है ज्यों,
भंडारी नृत्य हों करते,
डमरू की ज्यों ताल मिलाते,
बादल घन-घन गरजें।

सन सननननन पवन जो चलती,
पत्ते झूमते गाते,
बरखा के आने की आज,
ख़ुशियाँ ये भी मनाते।

छेदा जब बादल को पवन ने,
रिमझिम पानी बरसे,
प्यासी धरती, प्यासे पौधे,
मिलकर अब सब हर्षे।

खिला है जीवन, खिली है धरती,
खिली है सारी दुनिया,
अब तो सारा जीवन मिल,
मनाता रहेगा ख़ुशियाँ।

Composed by – Shaily Singh Panwar (RougePouts)
