MY POEM SAE'N KATH OR "OUR STORY"


OUR STORY

Can you chase shadows? Can you run after the wind ? If desires remain unfulfilled and turn icy , shall they warm up in exposure to external  sunshine  ?
And if the hammering downpour breaks open the roof  of the  dwelling and streams out  from the staircases , Which mud wall can withstand it.
Know more after reading  My kashmiri Poem “ SAE’N KATH “ or "Our story " …

( Autar Mota )

   
My English rendering would be …….

We kept Chasing
Shadows and the wind.
During sunshine ,
These unfulfilled desires,
We hung on windows .
When the heavy torrent
Streamed down the stairs within
The dwelling,
The weak mud Wall
Got washed away..
…………………………….. And  then *Laleshwari Moved across the hill .
…………………………… While Our  *Reshi abandoned  Tsraar Town

Dragging and pulling ,
In this upheaval
The day was somehow passed out .
At times , we did perform miracles ,
Digging a well with elbow
Or passing a wooden pole
from a Chinar Tree Trunk .
A Palace we erected on a water Bubble
And then one day,
That all engulfing fire
Turned it to ash .
…………………………..In  the heap of ash ,
                              We now  try to retrieve
 some residual  charcoal pieces .


“ This piercing  cold is
  Out to knock life out of us,
A little warmth this way too “

“  In a Crematorium ,
Be careful with Your words “

A Place where  the attendant
 Pulls out red hot  charcoal for his Kangri
from the Burning Pyre.
 ………………………………….. Reveal not this to any person
                                                        This is the way of the world.
