Aspire and Memories

Inspired by a poem of Mirza Ghalib


So many aspiration and few more many desires

To stonghold them, to keep them safe in coffer

That I keep safe under the words of my poems.

The memoirs of memories of the bygone era

Also have their own wish own desire tobe sunbathed.

So many aspiration and few more many desires

A limbo formed around as I dip into them

They are like the school in the deep water

Hiding treasures & history of ships & submarines.

What does she get creating the world; later demolishing

What does they get promising alot; later forgetting

What does mother get being atside; creating an illusion.

The memoirs of memories of the bygone era

And their aspiration and few more many desires…


The first line & it’s refrain is free translation of the poem Hazaaron Khwashien Aisi by Mirza Ghalib. [Read the poem at link with an English rendition]
