bahar bhi ab andar jaisa sannaTa hai

bahar bhi ab andar jaisa sannata hai
dariya ke us par bhi gahra sannata hai
shor thame to shayad sadiyan bit chuki hain
ab tak lekin sahma sahma sannata hai
kis se bolun ye to ek sahra hai jahan par
main hun ya phir gunga bahra sannata hai
jaise ek tufan se pahle ki khamoshi
aaj meri basti mein aisa sannata hai
nai sahar ki chap na jaane kab ubhregi
chaaron jaanib raat ka gahra sannata hai
soch rahe ho socho lekin bol na padna
dekh rahe ho shahr mein kitna sannata hai
mahw-e-khwab hain sari dekhne wali aankhen
jagne wala bas ek andha sannata hai
darna hai to an-jaani aawaz se darna
ye to 'anis' dekha-bhaala sannata hai
