samundar ki mehrbani

ye samundar ki mehrbani thi
tum ne sahil ko chhu ke dekh liya
ab hawa tum se kuchh nahin kahti
mauj-dar-mauj lautte ho tum
dhup mein ikhtilat karte ho
aur hawa tum se kuchh nahin kahti
koi bhi tum se kuchh nahin kahta
sab samundar ki mehrbani hai
jao barish ka ehtimam karo
abr-e-awara se patang banao
ab tumhaare hain khema-o-khargah
dur do baadban chamakte hain
kashtiyon mein diye jale honge
koi sahil pe aaega is bar
tum ne sote mein phir sawal kiya
kaun sahil pe aaega is bar
aao dariya nashin ho jaen
hum ne sahil ko chhu ke dekh liya

KHana-ba-doshon ka git

ab kis liye jahan-e-kharabi mein ghumna
wo so gai to us ne na dekha ki us ke baad
kitni badi qatar khule zawiyon ki thi
waqt aa gaya tha wasl-o-mukafat wasl ka
unchi zamin pe rail ki khidki ke sath sath
ghaaron mein bistaraon mein zamin par razai mein
ab kis liye jahan-e-kharabi mein lautna
so aashiyan ko misl-e-kabutar udaiye
aur din guzar chale to ye bazu samet kar
angushtari ko aaine par mar soiye
waqt aa gaya hai wasl-o-mukafat-e-wasl ka

fana ke liye ek nazm

mehrbani raat ka pahla pahar hai
subh-e-zindan ki halakat
sham wahshat-gar ki maut
wajibuttazim hai wo shakhs jo pahle mara
khisht se kuza ghanimat
kuza-e-wahshat se wahshat-gar ki khak
khak se aab-e-namak
barishon mein main namak ka ghar banaun
barf-bari mein purane bans ka
tasht mein sindur chhide sikke saja kar beach raste par rakhun
raat ke kohre mein khidki khol kar dekhun use
subh tak murda parinde
dopahar tak us ke hone ka guman
sham phir kohra khuli khidki parinde
us ke aangan ki wahi ham-saegi
wo nahin marta jo pichhli raat tak jaga kiya
mehrbani raat ka pahla pahar hai
ladkiyon ne ghas par nazmen likhin
pasi ke matke tod dale
aanganon mein git gae ghar gain
bashon mein dhup si us aankh ne dekha mujhe
kis ko jangal chahiye kis ko samundar chahiye
ye haya-alud sham
khidkiyon se khidkiyon tak jhilmilati ja rahi hai
qissa-gar zindan se chal kar aae hain
aanganon ko saf kar lo
ladkiyon ko sham ka khana khila do
sham se pahle sula do
wahshaton ki nind kachchi aankh ko zeba nahin
sham khwab-e-qissa-gar hai qissa-e-zindan-e-sham
mehrbani raat ka pahla pahar hai

ek ittifaqi maut ki rudad

sarasar ittifaqi maut thi
us ne kaha tha mujh ko jaana hai
so wo aise gaya jaise zamin se ghas jati hai
sarasar ittifaqan
panw chalne ke liye hote hain
itna to sabhi taslim karte hain
to aise mein agar mitti ki uryani shikayat-gar bhi ho jae
to us par aur mitti dal dete hain
so hum ne dal di mitti-pe-mitti
ittifaqan
ye to hota hai
sarasar ittifaqi hadisa tha
us ne khud likha tha
duniya beach aana ittifaqi amr hai
jaana sarasar hadsati
to us par to adalat ne bhi kuchh hujjat nahin ki
us ne khud likha tha
hujjat nafsiyati aariza hai
so adalat ne bila taftish use jaane diya
jaise zamin se ghas jati hai
sarasar ittifaqan
bil-umum aisa hi hota hai
hamesha ittifaqan

aur phir chand nikalta hai

aur phir chand nikalta hai
aur phir sara shahr simat kar tere ghar ka aangan ban jata hai
aur sham se pahle so jaane wale bachche jag uthte hain
aur main tere sath na jaane kis kis ghar mein jata hun
kin kin logon se milta hun
aur tu sath nahin hota hai
aur mein tanha hi rahta hun
aur yun pichhli raat ka pila chand meri dahliz pe kachcha sona bikhraata hai
bhule-bisre chehre aankhen malte uthte hain
aur main thande darwaze se lag kar so jata hun
agle din main kho jata hun
aur phir chand nikalta hai
aur phir sara shahr simat kar tere ghar ka aangan ban jata hai
aur phir main so jata hun
