ma/ mother

raat ki khali plate par
chawal se bikhare ye sitare
aur chand makhan ki dali sa
pighalta hua haule-haule

aaj ki raat
ma bahut yaad ayi

a horrendous translation again, but that’s what u’ll have to manage with starry, unless you learn hindi;)

stars, scatterred like rice
on the empty plate of night
and the moon, melting slowly
like a scoopful of butter

i miss mother, a lot
