yak jaan do qalib

donon ek hi zat mein gum the
baaten karte hanste khelte
chalte chalte ik-duje ko
dekh bhi lete
aab-o-hawa aur mitti ek
ek uthan
donon apne waqton ki aawaz bane the
dhun dariche chehra-mohra
ek tha un ka
ek si rangat ek hi rang mein range hue the
phir bhi donon alag alag the

sada suhagan

ang bhawan ka baadal garje
qatra qatra
jiwan barse
did aangan mein chhude ujala
jism samundar phir se mahke
nat-khat nari sae nigal ja
sa re ga ma pa dha ni sa
galiyan kuche sone raste
raushan honge
aankhen sari ubal padengi
panw mein jhanjhar bandh le phir se
sa ni dha pa ma ga re sa

raushni

sadak kinare baith ke aksar
main ye socha karta tha
ghatte badhte
tedhe tirchhe
lakhon sae
kis ka pichha karte hain
umr kinare
ab main apna
sundar saya
dhund raha hun
