ye kaisi kashmakash hai zindagi mein

ye kaisi kashmakash hai zindagi mein
kisi ko dhundte hain hum kisi mein
jo kho jata hai mil kar zindagi mein
ghazal hai nam us ka shaeri mein
nikal aate hain aansu hanste hanste
ye kis gham ki kasak hai har khushi mein
kahin chehra kahin aankhen kahin lab
hamesha ek milta hai kai mein
chamakti hai andheron mein khamoshi
sitare tutte hain raat hi mein
sulagti ret mein pani kahan tha
koi baadal chhupa tha tishnagi mein
bahut mushkil hai banjara-mizaji
saliqa chahiye aawargi mein

wo KHush-libas bhi KHush-dil bhi KHush-ada bhi hai

By

wo khush-libas bhi khush-dil bhi khush-ada bhi hai
magar wo ek hai kyun us se ye gila bhi hai
hamesha mandir-o-masjid mein wo nahin rahta
suna hai bachchon mein chhup kar wo khelta bhi hai
na jaane ek mein us jaise aur kitne hain
wo jitna pas hai utna hi wo juda bhi hai
wahi amir jo rozi-rasan hai aalam ka
faqir ban ke kabhi bhik mangta bhi hai
akela hota to kuchh aur faisla hota
meri shikast mein shamil meri dua bhi hai

wahi hamesha ka aalam hai kya kiya jae

By

wahi hamesha ka aalam hai kya kiya jae
jahan se dekhiye kuchh kam hai kya kiya jae
guzarte waqt ne dhundla diye sabhi chehre
khushi khushi hai na gham gham hai kya kiya jae
bhatak raha hun liye tishnagi samundar ki
magar nasib mein shabnam hai kya kiya jae
mili hai zakhmon ki saughat jis ki mahfil se
usi ke hath mein marham hai kya kiya jae
wo ek shakhs jo kal tak tha dusron se khafa
ab apne aap se barham hai kya kiya jae

uTh ke kapDe badal ghar se bahar nikal jo hua so hua

By

uth ke kapde badal ghar se bahar nikal jo hua so hua
raat ke baad din aaj ke baad kal jo hua so hua
jab talak sans hai bhuk hai pyas hai ye hi itihas hai
rakh ke kandhe pe hal khet ki or chal jo hua so hua
khun se tar-ba-tar kar ke har rahguzar thak chuke jaanwar
lakdiyon ki tarah phir se chulhe mein jal jo hua so hua
jo mara kyun mara jo luta kyun luta jo jala kyun jala
muddaton se hain gham in sawalon ke hal jo hua so hua
mandiron mein bhajan masjidon mein azan aadmi hai kahan
aadmi ke liye ek taza ghazal jo hua so hua

tera sach hai tere azabon mein

By

tera sach hai tere azabon mein
jhut likkha hai sab kitabon mein
ek se mil ke sab se mil lije
aaj har shakhs hai naqabon mein
tera milna tera nahin milna
ek rasta kai sarabon mein
un ki nakaamiyon ko bhi giniye
jin ki shohrat hai kaamyabon mein
raushni thi sawal ki had tak
har nazar kho gai jawabon mein

tanha hue KHarab hue aaina hue

By

tanha hue kharab hue aaina hue
chaha tha aadmi banen lekin khuda hue
jab tak jiye bikharte rahe tutte rahe
hum sans sans qarz ki surat ada hue
hum bhi kisi kaman se nikle the tir se
ye aur bata hai ki nishane khata hue
pur-shor raston se guzarna muhaal tha
hat kar chale to aap hi apne saza hue
