यो रात

चन्द्रको चालमा हिँड्ने रातको गर्नु के कुरा?
ताराको कनिके ज्योति शीतमा धसियो उता।।
जाडो भो अति नै हेर! पौषको मध्यरातमा
सुत्नु पो पर्छ, लौ जान्छु निद्रादेवी समीपमा।।

midnight thunder

flashes in the eastern sky
accompanied by crackles of thunder
— the last ones superimposed with the noise of jet
and, followed by the pitter-patter of rain
this october night
makes me feel
dashain is going to be gloomy and grey
probably to mourn the death of humanity
and
loss of (my) wisdom for that matter
