MORE BY Arifa Shahzad

    darḳhto? muntazir ho!

    pāniyoñ meñ jhāñkte kyā ho?

    khaḌe ho sākit-o-jāmid

    ḳhud apne aks hairāniyoñ meñ gum

    tako ik dūsre muñh

    raho yuuñ īstāda

    pāniyoñ ko kyā

    yūñhīñ bahte raheñge

    aks jo jhalkegā

    sat.h-e-āb bas ā.īna ban kar jagmagā.egī

    havā jo mauj meñ aa.ī

    to bas lahroñ se khelegī

    tumhāre Dagmagāte aks ko

    koī sambhālā tak nahīñ degā!

    tumhāre apne patte tāliyāñ pīTeñge

    san-san sansanāhaT se havā

    kāñptī shāḳheñ

    kareñgī kyā

    kanār-e-ābjū mah-rū

    takā kartā thā ghanToñ mahviyat se

    ishtiyāq-e-dīd aalam

    har ik patte āñkhoñ meñ

    tumhārā dilrubā mah-rū

    vo ab lauTe bhalā kaise

    darḳhto bhuul saktī hai kahāñ

    vo shakl

    jis ko dekh kar paanī āñkheñ

    is tarah se jagmagātī thiiñ

    ki us ko dekhne

    qaus-e-quzah ke rañg

    hañste khilkhilāte

    aa gale lagte the lahroñ se!

    ka.ī ik baar tum ne bhī

    usī chaah meñ

    jhuk kar

    havā-e-tez meñ bhī

    be-ḳhatar

    chūmī thī peshānī isī paanī

    jo mil kar havāoñ se

    jaḌoñ meñ bhar rahā hai nam!

    use kis baat hai ġham

    giroge muñh ke bal to

    qahqaha paanī sun lenā!

    tumheñ apnī tahoñ meñ yuuñ chhupā.egā

    ḳhabar tak bhī nahīñ hogī kisī ko

    tum yahāñ par the

    bahā le jā.egā

    anjān se un sāhiloñ tak

    aur

    vahāñ un sāhiloñ par

    ḳhas-o-ḳhāshāk meñ Dhal kar

    tumhārī muntazir āñkheñ salāmat rah ga.iiñ to

    dekh loge ḳhud

    vahī mah-rū

    palaT kar jo kabhī aayā nahīñ thaa!

    darKHto? muntazir ho!

    paniyon mein jhankte kya ho?

    khaDe ho sakit-o-jamid

    KHud apne aks ki hairaniyon mein gum

    tako ek dusre ka munh

    raho yun istada

    paniyon ko kya

    yunhin bahte rahenge

    aks jo jhalkega

    sath-e-ab bas aaina ban kar jagmagaegi

    hawa jo mauj mein aai

    to bas lahron se khelegi

    tumhaare Dagmagate aks ko

    koi sambhaala tak nahin dega!

    tumhaare apne patte taliyan piTenge

    san-san sansanahaT se hawa ki

    kanpti shaKHen

    karengi kya

    kanar-e-abju mah-ru

    taka karta tha ghanTon mahwiyat se

    ishtiyaq-e-did ka aalam

    har ek patte ki aankhon mein

    tumhaara dilruba mah-ru

    wo ab lauTe bhala kaise

    darKHto bhul sakti hai kahan

    wo shakl

    jis ko dekh kar pani ki aankhen

    is tarah se jagmagati thin

    ki us ko dekhne

    qaus-e-quzah ke rang

    hanste khilkhilate

    aa gale lagte the lahron se!

    kai ek bar tum ne bhi

    usi ki chah mein

    jhuk kar

    hawa-e-tez mein bhi

    be-KHatar

    chumi thi peshani isi pani ki

    jo mil kar hawaon se

    jaDon mein bhar raha hai nam!

    use kis baat ka hai gham

    giroge munh ke bal to

    qahqaha pani ka sun lena!

    tumhein apni tahon mein yun chhupaega

    KHabar tak bhi nahin hogi kisi ko

    tum yahan par the

    baha le jaega

    anjaan se un sahilon tak

    aur

    wahan un sahilon par

    KHas-o-KHashak mein Dhal kar

    tumhaari muntazir aankhen salamat rah gain to

    dekh loge KHud

    wahi mah-ru

    palaT kar jo kabhi aaya nahin tha!
