thakan se chur hun lekin rawan-dawan hun main

thakan se chur hun lekin rawan-dawan hun main
nai sahar ke charaghon ka karwan hun main
hawaen mere waraq laut laut deti hain
na jaane kitne zamanon ki dastan hun main
har ek shahr-e-nigaran samajh raha hai mujhe
zara qarib se dekho dhuan dhuan hun main
kisi se bhid mein chehra badal gaya hai mera
to sare aaina-khanon se bad-guman hun main
main apni gunj mein khoi hun ek muddat se
mujhe khabar nahin kuchh kaun hun kahan hun main
khud apni did se mahrum hai nazar meri
azal se surat-e-nazzara darmiyan hun main
mera wajud-o-adam raaz hai hamesha se
wahan wahan bhi nahin hun jahan jahan hun main

lahu se uTh ke ghaTaon ke dil baraste hain

lahu se uth ke ghataon ke dil baraste hain
badan chhaton ki tarah dhup mein jhulaste hain
hum aise ped hain jo chhanw bandh kar rakh den
shadid dhup mein khud sae ko taraste hain
har ek jism ke chaaron taraf samundar hai
yahan ajib jaziron mein log baste hain
sabhi ko dhun hai ki shishe ke baam-o-dar hon magar
ye dekhte nahin patthar abhi baraste hain
baha ke le gaya sailab raste jin ke
wo shahr apne khayalon mein ab bhi baste hain
maal kya hai ujalon ke un dafinon ka
jinhen chhuen to andheron ke nag daste hain
ajib log hain kaghaz ki kashtiyan gadh ke
samundaron ki bala-kheziyon pe hanste hain
