तुकोबांच्या भेटी । शेक्सपिअर आला by Vinda karandikar Kavita

तुकोबांच्या भेटी । शेक्सपिअर आला ।।
तो झाला सोहळा। दुकानात.
जाहली दोघांची । उराउरी भेट
उरातलें थेट । उरामध्ये
तुका म्हणे “विल्या। तुझे कर्म थोर;
अवघाचि संसार । उभा केला।।”
शेक्सपीअर म्हणे । एक ते राहिले; ।
तुका जे पाहिले विटेवरी.”
तुका म्हणे, “बाबा ते त्वां बरे केले,
त्याने तडे गेले। संसाराला;
विठठ्ल अट्टल, । त्याची रीत न्यारी
माझी पाटी कोरी । लिहोनिया.”
शेक्सपीअर म्हणे । तुझ्या शब्दामुळे
मातीत खेळले । शब्दातीत
तुका म्हणे गड्या । वृथा शब्दपीट
प्रत्येकाची वाट । वेगळाली
वेगळिये वाटे । वेगळिये काटे;
काट्यासंगे भेटे । पुन्हा तोच.
ऐक ऐक वाजे । घंटा ही मंदिरी।
कजागीण घरी । वाट पाहे.”
दोघे निघोनिया गेले दोन दिशां
कवतिक आकाशा आवरेना ।
– विंदा करंदीकर

To See Tukaram, Shakespeare Came Over by Vinda karandikar Kavita

To See Tukaram, Shakespeare Came Over;
the meeting took place, in the shop.

Both met each other, in a deep embrace,
passing everything, from bosom to bosom.

Tuka said, “O Will,your work is great;
the whole of earthly life, you have depicted.”

Shakespeare said, “No, that is left out;
that which you saw, on the brick!”

Tuka said, “O my boy, it’s good, you left that out;
that has cracked, my family life.
Vitthal is subtle; his ways are inscrutable;
my slate remains blank, in spite of writing!”

Shakespeare said,“Why!, Because of your words,
that ‘Inexpressible’ itself, played in the soil ”

Tuka said, “My friend, in vain is all word-play.
Everyone has to go, his separate way.
On different ways, there are different thorns;
but along with the thorns, one meets Him again.
…Now, listen, listen, there tolls the temple bell;
the shrew at home : is waiting…”

Both went their ways, in different directions;
The sky couldn’t check, its wonder!
(The Sacred Heresy: Selected poems of Vinda Karandikar)
