Ibn-e-Safi

Sher 11

likhne ko likh rahe haiñ ġhazab kahāniyāñ

likkhī na sakī magar apnī dāstāñ

likhne ko likh rahe hain ghazab ki kahaniyan

likkhi na ja saki magar apni hi dastan

chāñd husn bhī zamīn se hai

chāñd par chāndnī nahīñ hotī

chand ka husn bhi zamin se hai

chand par chandni nahin hoti

husn banā jab bahtī gañgā

ishq huā kāġhaz naav

husn bana jab bahti ganga

ishq hua kaghaz ki naw

zamīn kokh zaḳhmī nahīñ andheroñ se

hai āsmāñ ke bhī siine pe āftāb zaḳhm

zamin ki kokh hi zaKHmi nahin andheron se

hai aasman ke bhi sine pe aaftab ka zaKHm

dil khilaunā haath aayā hai

khelo toḌo bahlāo

dil sa khilauna hath aaya hai

khelo toDo ji bahlao
