chand ke tamannai

By

shahr-e-dil ki galiyon mein
sham se bhatakte hain
chand ke tamannai
be-qarar saudai
dil-gudaz tariki
ruh-o-jaan ko dasti hai
ruh-o-jaan mein basti hai
shahr-e-dil ki galiyon mein
tak shab ki belon par
shabnamin sarishkon ki
be-qarar logon ne
be-shumar logon ne
yaadgar chhodi hai
itni baat thodi hai
sad hazar baaten thin
hila-e-shakebai
suraton ki zebai
qamaton ki ranai
in siyah raaton mein
ek bhi na yaad aai
ja-ba-ja bhatakte hain
kis ki rah takte hain
chand ke tamannai
ye nagar kabhi pahle
is qadar na viran tha
kahne wale kahte hain
qarya-e-nigaran tha
khair apne jine ka
ye bhi ek saman tha
aaj dil mein virani
abr ban ke ghir aai
aaj dil ko kya kahiye
ba-wafa na harjai
phir bhi log diwane
aa gae hain samjhane
apni wahshat-e-dil ke
bun liye hain afsane
khush-khayal duniya ne
garmiyan to jati hain
wo ruten bhi aatin hain
jab malul raaton mein
doston ki baaton mein
ji na chain paega
aur ub jaega
aahaton se gunjegi
shahr-e-dil ki pahnai
aur chand raaton mein
chandni ke shaidai
har bahane niklenge
aazmane niklenge
aarzu ki gahrai
dhundne ko ruswai
sard sard raaton ko
zard chand bakhshega
be-hisab tanhai
be-hijab tanhai
shahr-e-dil ki galiyon mein

insha-ji hai nam unhi ka chaho to tum se milwaen

'insha'-ji hai nam unhi ka chaho to tum se milwaen
un ki ruh dahakta lawa hum to un ke pas na jaen
ye jo log banon mein phirte jogi bai-ragi kahlaen
un ke hath adab se chumen un ke aage sis nawaen
na ye lal jataen rakhen na ye ang bhabut ramaen
na ye geru-rang faqiri-chola pahan pahan itraen
basti se guzren to sare panghat ki alhad ablaen
in ki pyas bujhane ko khud umad-ghumad baadal ban jaen
nagri nagri ghumne walon mein un ki mashhur kathaen
waise baat karo to laj se un ki aankhen jhuk jhuk jaen
na un ki guddi mein tanba paisa na manke malaen
prem ka kasa dard ki bhiksha git ghazal do hai kawitaen

dil-ashob

yun kahne ko rahen mulk-e-wafa ki ujal gaya
ek dhund mili jis rah mein paik-e-khayal gaya
phir chand hamein kisi raat ki god mein dal gaya
hum shahr mein thahren, aisa to ji ka rog nahin
aur ban bhi hain sune un mein bhi hum se log nahin
aur kuche ko tere lautne ka to sawal gaya
tere lutf-o-ata ki dhum sahi mahfil mahfil
ek shakhs tha insha nam-e-mohabbat mein kaamil
ye shakhs yahan pamal raha, pamal gaya
teri chah mein dekha hum ne ba-haal-e-kharab ise
par ishq o wafa ke yaad rahe aadab ise
tera nam o maqam jo puchha, hans kar tal gaya
ek sal gaya, ek sal naya hai aane ko
par waqt ki bhi ab hosh nahin diwane ko
dil hath se is ke wahshi hiran ki misal gaya
hum ahl-e-wafa ranjur sahi, majbur nahin
aur shahr-e-wafa se dasht-e-junun kuchh dur nahin
hum khush na sahi, par tere sar ka wabaal gaya
ab husn ke gadh aur shahr-panahen suni hain
wo jo aashna the un sab ki nigahen suni hain
par tu jo gaya har baat ka ji se malal gaya
