hum apne zaKHm kuredte hain wo zaKHm parae dhote the

daraKHt ruh ke jhume parind gane lage

khile hain phul ki surat tere visal ke din

bahut malul baDe shadman gae hue hain

khuli jab aankh to dekha ki duniya sar pe rakkhi hai

KHarab-e-dard hue gham-parastiyon mein rahe

jitne marka-e-dil wo lagatar gaya

mizaj-e-sahal-talab apna ruKHsaten mange

lafzon ke sahra mein kya mani ke sarab dikhana bhi

jaane qalam ki aankh mein kis ka zuhur tha

band fasilen shahr ki toDen zat ki girhen kholen

yun bhi dil ahbab ke humne gahe gahe rakkhe the

be-masraf be-hasil dukh

har ek lamhe ki rag mein dard ka rishta dhaDakta hai

sabaq umr ka ya zamane ka hai

maut se aage soch ke aana phir ji lena

Abdul Hamid

12

ek KHuda par takiya kar ke baiTh gae hain

kuchh apna pata de kar hairan bahut rakkha

panw rukte hi nahin zehn Thaharta hi nahin

sae phail gae kheton par kaisa mausam hone laga

kisi dasht o dar se guzarna bhi kya

kitni mahbub thi zindagi kuchh nahin kuchh nahin

use dekh kar apna mahbub pyara bahut yaad aaya

ek mishal thi bujha di usne

kisi ka qahr kisi ki dua mile to sahi

kabhi dekho to maujon ka taDapna kaisa lagta hai

ajib shai hai ki surat badalti jati hai

dil mein jo baat hai batate nahin

Abul Hasanat Haqqi

Ahmad Faraz

15

silsile toD gaya wo sabhi jate jate

wahshaten baDhti gain hijr ke aazar ke sath

hum bhi shair the kabhi jaan-e-suKHan yaad nahin

is qadar musalsal thin shiddaten judai ki

jaan se ishq aur jahan se gurez

dil-girafta hi sahi bazm saja li jae

dukh fasana nahin ki tujhse kahen

ye shahr sehr-zada hai sada kisi ki nahin

main to maqtal mein bhi qismat ka sikandar nikla

misal-e-dast-e-zuleKHa tapak chahta hai

KHwabon ke byopari

ai mere sare logo

aankh se dur na ho dil se utar jaega

pabandi

jab tera hukm mila tark mohabbat kar di

ji chahta hai falak pe jaun

qalam dil mein Duboya ja raha hai

kaun kahta hai ki maut aai to mar jaunga

mudawa habs ka hone laga aahista aahista

patthar

lab-e-KHamosh se ifsha hoga

har lamha agar gurez-pa hai

Ahmad Salman

jo dikh raha usi ke andar jo an-dikha hai wo shairi hai

jo hum pe guzre the ranj sare jo KHud pe guzre to log samjhe

Ain Tabish

ek shahr tha ek bagh tha

aansuon ke ratjagon se

KHaksari thi ki bin dekhe hi hum KHak hue

hayat-e-soKHta-saman ek istiara-e-sham

meri tanhai ke ejaz mein shamil hai wahi

wahi junun ki soKHta-jaani wahi fusun afsanon ka

aawara bhaTakta raha paigham kisi ka

ghubar-e-jahan mein chhupe ba-kamalon ki saf dekhta hun

ghani siyah zulf badliyon si bila sabab mujh mein jagti hai

yahan ke rang baDe dil-pazir hue hain

badalne ka koi mausam nahin hota

Ajmal Siraj

ghum-phir kar isi kuche ki taraf aaenge

wo marka ki aaj bhi sar ho nahin saka

mazid ek bar par bar-e-giran rakkha gaya hai

ki jaise koi musafir watan mein lauT aae

ban ke saya hi sahi sat to hoti hogi

kandhon se zindagi ko utarne nahin diya

kabhi to bante hue aur kabhi bigaDte hue

KHud ko har aarzu ke us par kar liya hai

shahr mein sare charaghon ki ziya KHamosh hai

yun mere hone ko mujh par aashkar usne kiya

ye kar-e-zindagi tha to karna paDa mujhe

zamana kuchh bhi kahe teri aarzu kar lun

har ek lamha-e-gham bahr-e-be-karan ki tarah

har ek lamha-e-gham bahr-e-be-karan ki tarah

talatum hai na jaan-lewa bhanwar hai

sach ki KHatir sab kuchh khoya kaun likhega

talatum hai na jaan-lewa bhanwar hai

ai dil tere tufail jo mujh par sitam hue

dard ki sakit nadi phir se rawan hone ko hai

samundar se kisi lamhe bhi tughyani nahin jati

zamana kuchh bhi kahe teri aarzu kar lun

sach ki KHatir sab kuchh khoya kaun likhega

dard ki sakit nadi phir se rawan hone ko hai

samundar se kisi lamhe bhi tughyani nahin jati

ai dil tere tufail jo mujh par sitam hue

kabhi jo uski tamanna zara biphar jae

kabhi jo uski tamanna zara biphar jae

meri nigah kahan did-e-husn-e-yar kahan

dil mein yaad-e-but-e-be-pir liye baiTha hun

nazar us chashm pe hai jam liye baiTha hun

husn se sharh hui ishq ke afsane ki

hum aaj khaenge ek tir imtihan ke liye

dur the hosh-o-hawas apne se bhi begana tha

kyun kisi rah-rau se puchhun apni manzil ka pata

wo sar-e-baam kab nahin aata

Ashfaq Husain

zara zara hi sahi aashna to main bhi hun

ghar to hamara shoalon ke narghe mein aa gaya

wo mujhse mera taaruf karane aaya tha

qayamat aaegi mana ye hadisa hoga

haqiqaton ka nai rut ki hai irada kya

har ek raat ko mahtab dekhne ke liye

kitaben jab koi paDhta nahin tha

tamam shaKHsiyat uski hasin nazar aai

fikr mein hain hamein bujhane ki

jaane aaya tha kyun makan se main

nazar ki zad mein sar koi nahin hai

tu mujhko jo is shahr mein laya nahin hota

jism ke par wo diya sa hai

ab dil ki taraf dard ki yalghaar bahut hai

main rona chahta hun KHub rona chahta hun main

sune siyah shahr pe manzar-pazir main

us taraf tu teri yaktai hai

jism ki kuchh aur abhi miTTi nikal

har gali kuche mein rone ki sada meri hai

kabhi hanste nahin kabhi rote nahin kabhi koi gunah nahin karte

Farooq Bakshi

de gaya likh kar wo bas itna juda hote hue

ghubar-e-tang-zehni surat-e-KHanjar nikalta hai

muddat se wo KHushbu-e-hina hi nahin aai

kuchh naya karne ki KHwahish mein purane ho gae

kitabon se na danish ki farawani se aaya hai

muztarib dil ki kahani aur hai

ye wo safar hai jahan KHun-baha zaruri hai

kisi ke samne is tarah surKH-ru hogi

pyar jadu hai kisi dil mein utar jaega

chashm-e-hairat ko talluq ki faza tak le gaya

jo tu nahin hai to lagta hai ab ki tu kya hai

munawwar jism-o-jaan hone lage hain

Fatima Hasan

manazir KHub-surat hain

meri zamin pe lagi aap ke nagar mein lagi

kya kahun us se ki jo baat samajhta hi nahin

achchha lagta hai

aankhon mein na zulfon mein na ruKHsar mein dekhen

KHwab girwi rakh diye aankhon ka sauda kar diya
