Ghazal

baadbaa.n khulne se pahle kaa ishaara dekhnaa

baKHt se ko.ii shikaayat hai na aflaak se hai

kuchh to havaa bhii sard thii kuchh thaa tiraa KHayaal bhii

paa-ba-gil sab hai.n rihaa.ii kii kare tadbiir kaun

apnii tanhaa.ii mire naam pe aabaad kare

ashk aa.nkh me.n phir aTak rahaa hai

baadbaa.n khulne se pahle kaa ishaara dekhnaa

baarish hu.ii to phuulo.n ke tan chaak ho ga.e

bahut royaa vo ham ko yaad kar ke

baKHt se ko.ii shikaayat hai na aflaak se hai

chalne kaa hausla nahii.n ruknaa muhaal kar diyaa

gulaab haath me.n ho aa.nkh me.n sitaara ho

harf-e-taaza na.ii KHushbuu me.n likhaa chaahtaa hai

havaa mahak uThii ra.ng-e-chaman badalne lagaa

ik hunar thaa kamaal thaa kyaa thaa

jab saaz kii lai badal ga.ii thii

jagaa sake na tire lab lakiir aisii thii

jalaa diyaa shajar-e-jaa.n ki sabz-baKHt na thaa

kuchh KHabar laa.ii to hai baad-e-bahaarii us kii

paa-ba-gil sab hai.n rihaa.ii kii kare tadbiir kaun

ra.ng KHush-buu me.n agar hal ho jaa.e

rukii hu.ii hai abhii tak bahaar aa.nkho.n me.n

thak gayaa hai dil-e-vahshii miraa fariyaad se bhii

chaarasaazo.n kii aziyyat nahii.n dekhii jaatii

ham ne hii lauTne kaa iraada nahii.n kiyaa

zindagii be-saa.ebaa.n be-ghar kahii.n aisii na thii
