buDhapa

yun guman ho raha hai mere nadim
jaise ab gulsitan mein rang nahin
jaise ab dil mein kuchh umang nahin
aasman badliyon ki zad mein hai
zard-alud hain fazaen bhi
surkh suraj ki kapkapati kiran
chhu rahi hai ufuq ke sae ko
phailti ja rahi hai shab ki lakir
sehn-e-zindan ke chaar-payon par
dubti meri khwabida aankhen
dekhti jati hain purane khwab
guzre ayyam ke adhure khwab
zindagi se bhare sisakte khwab
dast-o-bazu hain kitne pazh-murda
nabz-e-hasti hai kitni aahista
ek dil hai ki dhadke jae hai
jaise girdab ta-safina koi
