December

December

nights are
an infinite stretch of quiet
in the cold Canadian north;
you can almost hear the
whir of earth revolving
on its axis
as if the snow was the
sum total of
all that churning

My Hindi/Urdu translation Of Ōtagaki Rengetsu’s poem

My Hindi/Urdu translation Of Ōtagaki Rengetsu’s poem

यह जो भरकर
यहां लाया गया है इस ज़र्फ़ बर्तन तक,
उजी दरिया का पानी
महकता है
पहाड़ी गुलाबों सा |

(The Original)

Scooped up
And brought here to this pot,
The water from Uji River
Has the fragrance
Of mountain roses.
