    लो ! हाथों-हाथ

    संकल्प फलीभूत होता-सा

    स्वप्न को साकार देखने की

    आस-भरी

    मछली की शान्त आँखें

    ऊपर देखती हैं।

    उतरता हुआ यान-सा दिखा,

    लिखा हुआ था उस पर

    ‘‘ धम्मो दया-विसुद्धो”

     

    तथा

    ‘‘ धम्मं सरणं गच्छामि”

    ज्यों-ज्यों कूप में

    उतरती गई बालटी

    त्यों-त्यों नीचे,

    नीर की गहराई में

     

    झट-पट चले जाते

    प्राण-रक्षण हेतु

    मण्डूक आदिक अनगिन

    जलीय-जन्तु।

     

    किन्तु,

    हलन-चलन-क्रिया मुक्त हो

    अनिमेष-अपलक

    निहारती हैं उतरती बालटी को

    रसनाधीना रसलोलुपा

    सारी मछलियाँ वे,

    भोजन इससे कुछ तो मिलेगा

    इस आशा से!

     

    पर यह क्या ? वंचना...!

    खाली बालटी देखकर

     

    Lo! hastily

    The resolve seeming to bear fruit,

    The calm eyes of the fish

    Expecting to see

    The dreams being materialized

    Cast a look upwards.

    An aerial car, landing downwards, was sighted,

    Which carried an inscription over it;

    'Dhammo dayā-visuddho' -

    -“ The religion consists in true compassion”

    And

    'Dhammam Saranam Gacchāmi' -

    - “I seek the shelter of Dharma.”

    The more the bucket

    Moved down into the well,

    In the like manner

    The frogs etc.

    Numerous watery creatures

    Fathomed quickly

    The depths of the water

    To save their lives.

     

    But,

    Being free from any act of motion or commotion

    With unwinkingly fixed eyes,

    The tongue-tied and taste-greedy

    All those fish

    Stare at the descending bucket,

    With the hope

    They would get some food grains from it!

     

    But, what wonder ? deception ...!

    On seeing the hollow bucket
