Sunil Uniyal सुनील उनियाल

mountains behind mountains
yet more mountains -
then haze beyond

पहाड़ों के पीछे
पहाड़ और पहाड़
फिर घटाटोप

a fog-filled dawn -
the pheasant forgets to sing
on the attic

कोहरे में सुबह -
भूल गये माना
अटारी पर

awakened at night -
somewhere far among the pines
the wind rustles

रात में नींद उचाटी -
दूर कहीं बजती है
चीड़ों में हवा

in the park
the row of amaltaas -
a yellow canopy

पार्क में
पंक्तिबध अमलतास -
पीत-वितान है तना

a poem written
after a long-long time -
a brahmakamal blooms

बहुत दिनों के बाद
लिखी कोई कविता
खिला ब्रह्म-कमल
