aashiyan DhunDhti hai

By

thaki haari chidiyon ke
ek ghol ki tarah
jab sham utri
ghane bargadon par
meri kalpanaon ke panchhi
liye apni chonchon mein tinke
ude un pur-asrar
andhi
dishaon ki jaanib
jahan aag ke jangalon mein
meri aatma
kitni sadiyon se byakul
koi aashiyan dhundhti hai

qatra qatra tishnagi

By

kunware khet meri khwahishon ke
tishnagi ki dhup mein
jalte hain
sim aur thur mayusi ke
kale qahr ki surat
lahu ka ek ek qatra
ragon se chuste jate hain
pile mausamon ki chup
bani hai bhag ki rekha
ki sadiyon se pada hai qaht giton ka
jo fasl katte waqt gati hain
thirakti nachti
basti ki baalaen
yahan sadiyon se barkha-rut ko
jiwan ka har ek lamha
tarasta hai
yahan kheton ke lab ki papdiyon par
tishnagi ka
qatra qatra bas tapakta hai

ek mashwara

By

mere gird
ab lal pili dawaon ki
in shishiyon se
na diwar chunne ki
koshish karo
tum hisar-e-dua mein
mujhe qaid karne ki zid chhod do
ab mere zakhm-khurda badan ki
na tum suiyon se
tabibon ki
paiwand-kari karo
apni pahchan ki shakl
bigdi hui lag rahi ho
to meri
ek achchhi si taswir
kamre mein tum tang lo
mujh ko ghar ke
kisi andhe kone mein ab dal do
