dhoop ka tukDa

jaaDe ke dino me
dhoop ka ek tukDa
aataa hai mere aangan me
naTkhaT bacche sa.
ek kone se
doosre kone tak,
reshami vastra sa
sarakataa hua,
dauDataa hai.
khijataa hai.
sukhaane ko daali gayi
cheezon ko sarkaate,
THanD se THiTHuri
deh ko garamaate,
subah se shaam tak
thakaa daalata hai
wah naTkhaT
dhoop ka tukDa
