gulab khandelwal selected poems

Oceans are playing in my arms.
What will the dew-drops,
Shining on the tree-leaves
Allure me !
I have borne the lashes of the lightnings,
On my chest,
What would these sand-particles
Pinching at my feet,
Test me !
I have fixed my gaze on the sun,
Why should I beg the glow-worms for light!
I have carved my signature
On the blue rock of the sky,
What will pieces of paper
Raise my value !
