nazm

roz raat ke pahle pahar
kore kaghaz par tumhaara nam likhta hun
aur mausam-e-bahaar ka aaghaz ho jata hai
kaghaz par tumhaare nam se ek bel phutti hai
us ki konplen nikalti hain
khush-rang shagufe khilte hain
bel mohabbat ki dhun par nachna shurua kar deti hai
nachte nachte pure waraq ko gulistan kar deti hai
main thodi si khush-bu apne hathon par mal leta hun
kuchh rang apne chehre par laga leta hun
muskan honton par saja leta hun
baqi raat pure ek sau phulon ka itr kashid karta hun
itr apni bayaz par undel deta hun
nazm ban jati hai

kyun aankh se surKHi ab chhalki hui lagti hai

kyun aankh se surkhi ab chhalki hui lagti hai
ye nind ki rani bhi ruthi hui lagti hai
yaadon ka tasalsul hai ghanghor judai hai
sawan ki tarah ye bhi chhai hui lagti hai
sujhe na mudawa kyun khud mere masiha ko
zakhmon ki tarah chahat risti hui lagti hai
aawaz ye kis ne di phir yaad ye kaun aaya
be-tabi-e-dil kuchh kuchh sambhali hui lagti hai
guzri hai gulabon ko daman mein khizan bhar ke
har shakh-e-chaman lekin mahki hui lagti hai
bazar-e-mohabbat ke tajir hain sitam-pesha
ai 'bano' teri qimat lagti hui lagti hai
