Ta Laare Da Bal Cha Shwe

My second Pashto poem (the first one is rreally, really, REALLY, really bad so ain't worth sharing ... but I may still upload it some day :D).

Ta Laare Da Bal Cha Shwe

Maa weil mung ba yaozai shu, pa tora tora shpa ke
Spogmai pa sar walaara, da khaista storo da laande
Kho jor hera de krram, gula, ta che laare bewafa shwe
Au da bal gulab baora shwe
Maa we ta ba zama she, za ba sta sham
Kho ta laare da bal cha shwe

Maa weil charta ba laar shu, sam laree ao yawaze
Zama da zrra har yao armaan, zama jwand tol sta pa laas ke
Kho taa awaz onako, ta che da bale khule khanda shwe
Au da bal storee ranra shwe
Maa we ta ba zama she, za ba sta sham
Kho ta laare da bal cha shwe

Maa weil charta ba keeno, za ao ta da seend pa ghaara
Zrruna ba khpal spak ku, yao bal ta munga dwanra
Kho sta sara zrra na wo, ta che da bal zargee dua shwe
Au zama na beparwa shwe
Maa we ta ba zama she, za ba sta sham
Kho ta laare da bal cha shwe

Maa weil ta ba laas raakre, pa khushalai ao pa khanda
Dwanra ba yao shu pa maza, da ghamuno, selabuno na fana
Kho pa naseeb na shwe zama, ta che da bal ranzor shafa shwe
Au zama da jwand saza shwe
Maa we ta ba zama she, za ba sta sham
Kho ta laare da bal cha shwe

  1. I m impressed.You put things in a very simple way and that is the quality of a good poet.Keep it up ,Pukhtaney Peghley.BTY ,Is it your personal experience(Hope you wo,t min it) or observations becuase poets are very sinsitive,vigilent and feel other,s pains and sufferings.Kor dey Wadan

  8. Yaa Spogmai! Alaaaaa!! I just traveled through destaar.com and ohhh my God!! I didn't know you'd publicly post "Hagha Dwa Malalai Stargey"! halaaaa! Bas ka, bas ka, lolll. How I love you!

    By the way, I've translated this poem, kha, kho ... it's not poetic at all! I *might consider* posting it in my blog if I have your permission (in English, since I can't write/paste anything in Pukhto here!)

    And destaar.com doesn't look bad; if I figure out how to write in English there, I might join it, lol. (I just saw that some people wrote that they don't understand English, though. So never mind.)

  9. @Qrratugai: "Daa yao kho ba na yaadey?".......

    Ao, dagha kho ye hum dher khaista dey kho za che koom yadome hagha nom 'Sehra' da......tole dher khaista dee; da ogarai "Hagha Dwa Malalai Stargey" somra khukaley likalae dey....just keep one thing in mind that original verses of Pukhto is something totally different from a translated version of it so do prove-read it from Spogmai:)......ao kana khyal mey na shee ka hagha khwand ao khaist pakey wee.

    'Destaar' yao dher da simple, meenawalo ao Pukhto jabey mayano zai dey ao Spogmai che koma shairee mung sera haltha share karre ya kawee, we are just so thankful to her.

  10. Aao, Sahra wala hum der khaista dey. Pa har verse, pa har takee baande maa hairana kai che daa janai da kumzey na dessi khaista alfaz raubasi gwarey?

    I tried translating her "Shamla pa Oor Oseza"! Didn't work because it seemed to be losing meaning with translation and I'd rather leave it un-translated than translate it with meaningless meaning! "Hagha Dwa Malalai Stargey" ... ahhh, this one took me forever! And I still have a few words that I can't find good translations for so have to ask her about that.

    Translating poems and other works requires strong talent and is rarely found. For me, it's impossible to translate it and express the same thoughts in it as Spogmai expressed in Pukhto.

  14. hahaha, and I myself just realized I haven't responded to the above comments at all!

    Thank you, good folks! Your encouragement is greatly appreciated and means a lot!

    Tor Khana, bass sa wakoo :p koshishuna kao no, lol. I figured I need to try something in Pukhto as well, since it feels like blasphemy to be writing poetry in a non-native language but not in my native one! Jo dagha wo no ... nor, trying harder and hoping that the future poems will be better, ka khairee.

    Manana, Baba ;)

  16. good effort!!!! keep it up...
    I think you took seriously my advice to write in Pushto thanks and I hope the next step would be to install Pushto fonts (well please don't blame me for not having Pushto fonts in my own writtings actually I am not a good writer rather just a spectator and reader)...

    1. Thanks for your kind thoughts and for your support, Anonymous! I'm glad you found the poem worth a read and praise! I still haven't installed Pashto fonts but I just discovered something recently that'll make typing Pukhto easier. Will do that!

      Dera manana!

    Ase na che bia cherta dhooka shma ra ger shma
    Mata pa sro shondoo pa khanda khabari makawa....
    Khapal haloona waye dase ma waye che sanga ye
    Za kho lewany yama zma khabari makawa......
