दो चक्र

चाह थी कुछ कर जाऊँ,
धूल से ज़र्रा बन जाऊँ, 
आशीष मिला अपनों का,
दूर कहीं रश्मि उज्ज्वलता, 
क्षण क्षण में जीवन जी जाऊँ, 
आत्म शक्ति का संचार कर पाऊँ, 
चाह थी कुछ कर जाऊँ ________

चेहरे की लकीरें बुदबुदाती,
उम्र होने का अहसास कराती 
नहीं दी इजाज़त मैंने इनको 
तय कर पाए मेरी उम्र को,
चाह थी कुछ कर जाऊँ ___________

सुदृढ़ निश्चय जटिल है 
विपदाओं में भी अटल है 
पग गति अब न रूकेगी 
अम्बर को जब तक न छुएगी 
चाह थी कुछ कर जाऊँ ___________

आँधी बरखा तूफान आ जाए 
जोश क्या कोई बाँध पाए 
बढ़ते रहना एक ही ध्येय 
वश में करनी है प्रलय 
चाह थी कुछ कर जाऊँ _________

भोर सपने साकार हुए हैं 
कह गए साधु संत 
दो चक्र पंख बने हैं 
उड़ चली मैं बादलों संग 
चाह थी कुछ कर जाऊँ ___________

I am a retired teacher. A creative person always trying to learn and do something new. Cycling was a daily routine during my school and college days, nearly four decades back. Now again I have started to pick up the old threads and started cycling again with a group. It feels good
