KHwab-e-haqiqat

pani aurat aur ghalazat
aksar khwabon mein aate hain
mujh ko pareshan kar jate hain
aurat ek hayula surat
kabhi ajanta ki wo murat
kabhi kabhi japani gudiya
kabhi wo ek sagar shahzadi
aab-e-rawan ke dosh pe leti
maujon ke halkore khati
sanp ki aankhon mein angara
us ki har phunkar mein wahshat
apne har andaz mein dahshat
kabhi wo mujh par hamle karta
kabhi main us ke sar ko kuchalta
dhan ke khet mein thahra pani
dariyaon mein bahta pani
lahraata bal khata pani
tughyani mein bhanwar banata
sailabon mein shor machata
ghazab mein phailta badhta pani
kodon ke dheron ke jaisa
unche niche tilon jaisa
milon ke raqbe mein phaila
dekhta hun insani fuzla
kabhi to main pata hun khud ko
apni ghalazat mein hi luthda
kabhi main apne hathon se hi
ghar se bahar phenkta dekhun
apne ghar walon ka fuzla
kabhi kamod mein tairta dekhun
kabhi to mez pe khane ki hi
kabhi kisi duje kamre mein
aksar apne kamre mein bhi
apne bistar par hi dekhun
ya phir
dur khalaon ke aangan se
apne ghar mein ghusta dekhun
khwabon ka asrar hai kaisa
khwabon ki lazzat hai kaisi
jin mein jakda
sochta hun main
waqai ye sab khwab hain yawar
khwab-numa koi bedari
ya be-manzil rasta koi
ya phir ek tilism hai koi
ek din phir aisa hota hai
sanp aurat ko das leta hai
pani mein ghalazat mil jati hai
ab bas sanp hai aur ghalazat
par ye shayad khwab nahin

kabhi tu ne ye socha hai

kabhi tu ne ye socha hai
ki tere lafz sun lun to
mere dil mein hazaron phul khilte hain
mere kanon ki shunawai
khayalon mein hasin paikar banati hai
ye teri sandali aawaz
meri sans ki kuku
badhati hai
kabhi tu ne ye socha hai
bhala kab tak nibhaungi
magar tu yaad rakhna
ek din main laut aaungi

zaruri baat

By

nili nili sham ki khamoshiyon ke beach
kya sargoshiyan si karte hain shakhon se ye patte
jhuka hai gul kali ke rukh pe sari khushbuen le kar
bikhere zulf suraj ki taraf chal di hai ek badli
hawa athkheliyan karti hai ruk ruk kar darakhton se
zamin ko aasman ne le liya apni panahon mein
tum aa jate agar ghar aaj jaldi
mujh ko bhi tum se zaruri baat karna thi

sharmili KHamoshi

By

sham ki sharmili chup ko
ruh mein mahsus karte
kaam mein masruf hain hum dopahar se
dil ki aankhen dekhti hain gahri gahri sabz shakhon ko
jo baithi hain khamoshi se
kiye kham gardanen apni
kisi dulhan ki surat
sar pe odhe aasman ki surmai chunari
sitare jis mein tanke ja rahe hain
hum apne is tasawwur par khud hi muska rahe hain

sham ki barish

By

kaun se koh ki aad mein li khurshid ne ja kar aaj panah
chou-tarfa yalghaar si ki hai abr ne bhi ta-hadd-e-nazar
dhime chalte kale baadal udti si ujli badli
raqsan raqsan jhalak dikha kar rah jati hai barq kabhi
patton ke jhurmut mein sae kajlae sharmae se
phul halimi se sar kham aur kaliyan kuchh sharmai sin
danista barish mein udte phirte aawara tair
yahan wahan baithe kitne bhigin chup-chap se khush ho kar
bijli ki manus kadak shah-zor garaj ye baadal ki
ab ke hum ne kitni dhupen is mausam ki rah taki
