Nancy Prasad नैनसी प्रसाद

clouds cover
and uncover
the moon

बादल ढकते हैं
और फिर हट जाते हैं
चंद्रमा से





a sudden gust of wind
dry leaves
become sparrows

अचानक हवा का एक झोंका
सूखे पत्ते
बन गये गौरैया





the waves
what are they saying
over and over again

लहरें
क्या कह रहीं है वह
बारम्बार बारम्बार





always a few steps
ahead of me
grasshopper

हमेशा कुछ कदम
मेरे से आगे
घास का टिड्डा




wild horses
gallop along the margins
my old school books

जंगली घोड़े
दौड़ रहे किनारों पर
मेरी पुरानी स्कूल की पुस्तकें

Nancy Prasad has taught high school English and worked for various Arts organizations. Besides haiku, she writes short stories, poetry and essays which have been published in trade and educational anthologies.
