lahu se uTh ke ghaTaon ke dil baraste hain

lahu se uth ke ghataon ke dil baraste hain
badan chhaton ki tarah dhup mein jhulaste hain

hum aise ped hain jo chhanw bandh kar rakh den
shadid dhup mein khud sae ko taraste hain

har ek jism ke chaaron taraf samundar hai
yahan ajib jaziron mein log baste hain

sabhi ko dhun hai ki shishe ke baam-o-dar hon magar
ye dekhte nahin patthar abhi baraste hain

baha ke le gaya sailab raste jin ke
wo shahr apne khayalon mein ab bhi baste hain

maal kya hai ujalon ke un dafinon ka
jinhen chhuen to andheron ke nag daste hain

ajib log hain kaghaz ki kashtiyan gadh ke
samundaron ki bala-kheziyon pe hanste hain
