    अकाल में ही जीवन से

    हाथ धोना पड़ेगा क्या ?


    दिन-पर-दिन कटते गये

    ..कई दिन!

    जब कारण ज्ञात हुआ शिल्पी के अदर्शन का

    प्रेमभरी मन्द-मुस्कान

    लाड़-प्यार की बात।

    गात पर हाथ सहलाता

    कोमल कर-पल्लवों का वह सहलाव

    संगीत के साथ आत्मसात् कराता

    शीतल सलिल का स्नेहिल सिंचन…

    यह सब अतिशय अतीत का,

    स्मृति का विषय बन झलक आया

    गुलाब-पौध के समक्ष।



    पौध ने दृष्टिपात किया तुरन्त।

    सुदूर...प्रांगण में आसीन शिल्पी की ओर,


    भोग-भुक्ति से ऊब गया है,

    योग-भक्ति में डूब गया है,

    उसकी मति वह

    प्रभु-चरणों की दासी बनी है,


    मुखाकृति पर पतली हल्की-सी

    उदासी बसी है!...सो...

    Relinquished untimely ?


    Day after day passed away

    ...So many days !

    When the reason of the Artisan's absence is known

    An affectionate soft smile

    Something of fondling and loving.

    That tickling of the tender leaf-like palms

    Rubbing gently its hand upon the body,

    The endearing sprinkling of the cool water...

    Conferring assimilation with the music...

    All this pre-eminence bestowed by the past,

    On becoming a recollection of memory

    Reflects before the sapplings of roses.



    The row of plants at once cast its glance! Towards the Artisan seated in the distant...courtyard,


    Has been fed up with the worldly pleasures and luxuries, Has been absorbed into asceticism and devotion, His such understanding

    Has become a devotee at the feet of the Lord,


    There dwells into his facial expressions

    A thin and dim sense of dejection !...So...


    On seeing his Lord caught into scruples

    The rose-plant speaks out :“The

    end to this trouble should come within the reach,
