  • રોશનીથી ઝળહળતા ખંડમાં જામેલી
    મહેફિલમાં બહારના અંધકારમાંથી
    ઉડીને આવેલું પક્ષી એક બારીએથી પ્રવેશી બીજી
    બારીએથી નીકળી જાય એટલા સમયની આ વાત....
    - આગન્તુક
  • “આ કથા માત્ર વાંચવાની નથી, આપણા મનોજગતની દીવાદાંડી બનાવીને એનો પ્રકાશ ઝીલવાનો છે. આકરો લાગે તો પણ, આંખો અંજાઈ જાય તો પણ.”
    - કાંદબરીની મા
  • When I cook
    There is a prayer in my heart
    I talk with my God all the time
    And consult Him once in a while
    That is why
    Every meal is a success
    And my home
    A happy place!
    - Kitchen Poems
  • સફળતા અને નિષ્ફળતા
    કર્તુત્વના સિક્કાની બે બાજુ.

    શરણાગતિના શીતળ જળમાં
    સિક્કો પધરાવ્યા વિના
    શાંતિ ક્યાંથી લાધશો?
    - છોળ અને છાલક
  • સુખ છે દિવસનો તીક્ષ્ણ પ્રકાશ
    દુઃખ છે રાત્રિનો ગાઢ અંધકાર
    ક્યાંથી સહેવાત એ બન્ને
    વચ્ચે જો આવી ન પડી હોત
    સંધ્યાની રંગીન ચાદર ફરફરતી
    કૌતુક્મયી સ્મિતભરી
    ઝંકૃત પક્ષીગાનથી?
    - પેઈંગ ગેસ્ટ
