pichhle-pahar ke sannaTe mein

pichhle pahr ke sannate mein
kis ki siski kis ka nala
kamre ki khamosh faza mein dar aaya hai
zor hawa ka tut chuka hai
khule dariche ki jali se
nannhi nannhi bunden chhan kar
sab konon mein phail gai hain
aur mere ashkon se
un ke hath ka takiya bhig gaya hai
kitni zalim
kitni gahri tariki hai
khula daricha thar-thar-thar-thar kanp raha hai
bhigi mitti saundhi khushbu chhod rahi hai
ude baadal
kale ambar ki jhilon mein dub gae hain
kis ke rukhsaron ki larzish dekh raha hun
kis ki zulfon ki shiknon se khel raha hun
chupke chupke lete lete soch raha hun
pichhle pahr ka sannata hai
kis ki siski kis ka nala
kamre ki khamosh faza mein dar aaya hai
ghane darakhton mein purwa ki siti gunji
do dikshon mein qaidi ruhen chikh rahi hain
konon mein dubke hue jhingar chillate hain
mehrabon se bhuton ke sar takraate hain
qile ke ek burj ke andar
ek pari (shilat ki rani)
khandaq ke an-dekhe pani ki gahrai
andeshe ke baalishton se map rahi hai
mazi ki dewdhi ki chilman
khule dariche ki jali se
chhan chhan aaen
rup ki jot hina ki lali kal ki yaaden
saundhi khushbu thandi bunden
kal ke basi aansu jin se
farda ke baalin ka parda bhig raha hai
sehr-zada mahbus hasina
sapnon ke shilat ki rani
aainon mein husn-e-shikasta dekh rahi hai
kitne chehre tute tute
pahchane an-pahchane se
aage pichhe aage pichhe bhag rahe hain
qile ke aaseb ki surat kis ki siski kis ka nala
kamre ki khamosh faza mein dar aaya hai
bichhde logo piyare logo
chahen bhi to nam tumhaare jaan sakenge?
kaise manen tum ko hamare
ji lene ki mar lene ki
khushi hui afsos hua hai
tum kya jaano
kis ke hath ka takiya
kis ke garm ashkon se bhig raha hai
khule dariche ki jali se chimti aankho
ek lamhe ke kaunde mein tum
kin kin ajnabi chizon ko pahchan sakogi
jiwan-khel mein haare logo
bichhde logo piyare logo
barkha ki lambi raaton mein
kamre ki khamosh faza mein
pichhle pahr ke sannate mein
rote rote jagne wale
hum logon ko so lene do
aur sawera ho lene do
