Introspection Serenity Sunsets

बस यूँही……

A beautiful evening, the clouds parted just enough from the horizon to show it was on fire. The fire of unrealized dreams not fully extinguished in my thoughts or mind. An aeroplane that flew across at a great height left a luminous trail across the skies.
I was reminded of a poem by Edgar Allan Poe.


Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

गर दम है तो गिन ले आसमान के सितारे,
बस इतने ही ख्वाहिशों के ख्वाब बुन है सारे,
हश्र ये है की क्या गिने…..???
तेरी ख्वाहिशों के ख्वाब या आसमान में सितारे….

Good picture . Do you know Edgar Allen Poe lived in Richmond Virginia for a long time and there is a small bar on Main Street with his name. Poe frequented that bar !
