ajib shahr ka naqsha dikhai deta hai

ajib shahr ka naqsha dikhai deta hai
jidhar bhi dekho andhera dikhai deta hai
nazar nazar ki hai aur apne apne zarf ki baat
mujhe to qatre mein dariya dikhai deta hai
bura kahe jise duniya bura nahin hota
meri nazar mein wo achchha dikhai deta hai
nahin fareb-e-nazar ye yahi haqiqat hai
mujhe to shahr bhi sahra dikhai deta hai
hain sirf kahne ko bijli ke qumqume raushan
har ek samt andhera dikhai deta hai
ajib haal hai sailab ban gae sahra
jise bhi dekhiye pyasa dikhai deta hai

asiran-e-qafas aisa to ho tarz-e-fughan apna

asiran-e-qafas aisa to ho tarz-e-fughan apna
ki ho sayyaad khud bhi rafta rafta ham-zaban apna
kiye ja kaam han ai gardish-e-daur-e-zaman apna
hamein bhi dekhna hai kaise mitta hai nishan apna
adu hain bijliyan apni na dushman aasman apna
hamein khud apne hathon phunkte hain aashiyan apna
na kho de sust-gami hum ko bazi-gah-e-hasti mein
na gard-e-karwan rah jae ban kar karwan apna
chaman ke patte patte par hain yarab bijliyan qabiz
kahan le jaen murghan-e-chaman ab aashiyan apna
urus-e-manzil-e-maqsud mil hi jaegi ek din
yunhi chande raha garja wo paima karwan apna
jala den hum qafas ki titliyan shoala-nawai se
har ek murgh-e-chaman 'asi' agar ho ham-zaban apna

bab-e-qafas khulne ko khula hai

bab-e-qafas khulne ko khula hai
bahar bhi to dam bichha hai
us ke siwa sab bhul gaya hun
jab se wo mere dil mein basa hai
badhne lagi hai dil ki dhadkan
shayad us ne yaad kiya hai
qafile walo khair manao
rahzan hi jab rah-numa hai
sahil sahil bhi kya chalna
maujon pe safina dal diya hai
apni marzi apni raza kya
sab se badh kar us ki raza hai
aaj ke insan ki mat puchho
jaise khuda se bhi ye bada hai

dhup haalat ki ho tez to aur kya mango

dhup haalat ki ho tez to aur kya mango
kisi daman ki hawa zulf ka saya mango
us se kya kam hai kisi ke rukh-e-zeba ki ziya
mah-o-khurshid se kyun un ka ujala mango
jis ke baad aur na rah jae tamanna koi
mangna ho jo khuda se wo tamanna mango
khub hai dard ki lazzat ye badi daulat hai
zakhm-e-dil ke liye marham na mudawa mango
jis se chhai hui haalat ki zulmat chhat jae
tum to khurshid ho khud se wo ujala mango
gar shab-e-gham ko sahar chaho banana 'asi'
kisi salma se ziya-e-rukh-e-zeba mango

di gai tartib-e-bazm-e-kun-fakan mere liye

di gai tartib-e-bazm-e-kun-fakan mere liye
ye zamin mere liye hai aasman mere liye
didani hai khud hi apne dil ke zakhmon ki bahaar
hech hai rangini-e-har-gulsitan mere liye
zauq-e-sajda chahiye kaisa haram kaisi kunisht
aastan-e-dost hai har aastan mere liye
jada-e-mehr-o-wafa mein mar ke zinda ho gaya
maut hai meri hayat-e-jawidan mere liye
azm-e-kaamil ko mere har-gam par manzil mili
ban gain dushwariyan aasaniyan mere liye
ho mubarak hazrat-e-zahid ko firdaus-e-jinan
hai dayar-e-dost khuld-e-jawedan mere liye
ham-nawaon ko mubarak halqa-e-zulf-e-butan
muztarib zindan mein hongi bediyan mere liye

dil ki baat kya kahiye dil ajib basti hai

dil ki baat kya kahiye dil ajib basti hai
rose ye ujadti hai aur rose basti hai
pahle apni haalat pe hans le khud hi ji bhar ke
dekh kar mujhe duniya tanz se jo hansti hai
aaj ka zamana bhi wah kya zamana hai
zindagi bahut mahngi maut kitni sasti hai
us se dur kya hogi tirgi zamane ki
shama raushni ko khud aaj jab tarasti hai
