sapera

By

main hun ek ajib sapera
nag palna kaam hai mera
pile pile kale kale
rang-birange dhabbon wale
shaalon si fankaron wale
zahrili mahkaron wale
un ki aankhen tez nashili
gahri jhilon jaisi nili
nae lahu se lal zamanen
jaise maut ki rangin tanen
mahmil ke rumalon jaise
surkh gulabi galon jaise
mujh ko takte rahte hain ye
mujh ko daste rahte hain ye
mujh par hanste rahte hain ye

nigar-KHana

By

kisi ki sharbati nazar
koi mahakta pairahan
damakti surkh chudiyan
chamakta reshmi badan
kai jhuke jhuke shajar
hare banon mein ghumti
koi udas rahguzar
hina ke rang mein base
kisi nagar ke baam-o-dar
rahenge yaad umr-bhar

maut

By

har taraf khamosh galiyan zard-ru gunge makin
sune sune baam-o-dar aur ujde ujde shah-nashin
mumtiyon par ek gahri khamushi saya-fagan
reng kar chalti hawa ki bhi sada aati nahin
is sukut-e-bekaran mein ek tilismi naznin
surkh gahre surkh lab aur chand si pili jabin
aankh ke mubham ishaare se bulati hai mujhe
ek pur-asrar ishrat ka khazana hai wo chashm-e-dil-nashin

KHalish

By

wo khub-surat ladkiyan
dasht-e-wafa ki hirniyan
-shahr-e-shab-e-mahtab ki
bechain jadu-garniyan
jo baadalon mein kho gain
nazron se ojhal ho gain
ab sard kali raat ko
aankhon mein gahra gham liye
ashkon ki bahti nahr mein
gulnar chehre nam kiye
hasti ki sarhad se pare
khwabon ki sangin ot se
kahti hain mujh ko bewafa
hum se bichhad kar kya tujhe
sukh ka khazana mil gaya

kalpana

By

raat hai kitni gahri kali
dukh ki baat sujhane wali
dur dur ki aawazon ko
ujde gharon mein lane wali
sar par hai ghanghor badriya
dil mein lagan piritam ke milan ki
shor machati badhti aae
tez hawa sune madhuban ki
chadhta sagar rasta roke
bairan bijli ji ko darae
dur bahut hai pi ki nagariya
hum se to ab chala na jae

jadu ka khel

By

rang-birange shishon wali khidki band padi hai ab
wo ladki jo is mein khadi logon ko khwab dikhati thi
kali kali raaton mein honton ki shama jalati thi
tez nigahon ki bijli se sab ke hosh udati thi
dast-e-hinai ke shoale se chiq mein aag lagati thi
ab wo dilon se khelne wali ladki to hai byahi gai
sunte hain wo ladki jate waqt bahut hi roi thi
yun lagta tha us ki koi qimti si shai khoi thi
