“It’s all a matter of

time.” We have heard this and other expressions like this many a time. Apart from our usual notions about time as good or bad, time is also a philosophical concept. We all are subjected to time but we also make time our subject. Poetry in all languages has engaged with the idea and experience of time. Here are some examples from Urdu for you to appraise.

subh hoti hai sham hoti hai

sada aish dauran dikhata nahin

subh hoti hai sham hoti hai

farz karo

guzarne hi na di wo raat maine

tum chalo is ke sath ya na chalo

ab teri yaad se wahshat nahin hoti mujhko

aur kya chahti hai gardish-e-ayyam ki hum

un ka zikr unki tamanna unki yaad

subh hoti hai sham hoti hai
