इला प्रसाद

मैं तलछट सी निकालकर
फेंक दी गई हूँ
किनारे पर
लहरों को मेरा
साथ बहना
रास नहीं आया

मैं न शंख थी
न सीपी
कि चुन ली गई होती
किन्ही उत्सुक निगाहों से
रेत थी
रेत सी रौंदी गई
काल के क्रूर हाथों से

Ila Prasad

I have been removed like silt
and discarded
on the shores
The waves
did not like
my company, I think

I was neither shell
nor a concha
that I would be
sought, selected, secured
by eager eyes
I was sand
and I was chafed like sand
by destiny’s cruel hands
