    ḳhalāoñ ke andhe musāfir se pūchheñ

    vo ik zarra-e-ḳhāk se TuuT kar duur lā-intihā vus.atoñ aur

    be-samt rāhoñ pur-haul ḳhāmoshiyoñ meñ

    bhaTaktā phirā thā

    havāoñ ke rahvār par barq-raftār sadiyāñ guzartī rahīñ

    us rāhoñ meñ pal bhar ko aahaT na aa.ī

    zamīñ ātishīñ goyā chaugāñ ḳhalā meñ luḌhaktī huī

    yuuñ be-mudda.ā raqs kartī huī

    batn-e-ḳhurshīd se aag ke surḳh dhabbe sūrat nikal kar

    ḳhalā ke añdhere samundar meñ Duubī

    phir āhista āhista tārīk hone lagī thī ki andhā musāfir

    uchhal kar kisī samt-e-be-nām ko chal dayā thā

    phir ab tak alag un ke mehvar alag un rāheñ

    zamīñ bhī añdherī

    musāfir bhī be-nūr

    lekin use kyā patā thā ki ik din zamīñ

    saarī gahrā.iyāñ paaT kar aa milegī

    to aflāk ke andhe rah-rau se pūchheñ

    ki ye lamha-e-vasl kah

    tujh ko kaisā lagā hai

    KHalaon ke andhe musafir se puchhen

    wo ek zarra-e-KHak se TuT kar dur la-intiha wusaton aur

    be-samt rahon ki pur-haul KHamoshiyon mein

    bhaTakta phira tha

    hawaon ke rahwar par barq-raftar sadiyan guzarti rahin

    us ki rahon mein pal bhar ko aahaT na aai

    zamin aatishin goya chaugan KHala mein luDhakti hui

    yun hi be-muddaa raqs karti hui

    batn-e-KHurshid se aag ke surKH dhabbe ki surat nikal kar

    KHala ke andhere samundar mein Dubi

    phir aahista aahista tarik hone lagi thi ki andha musafir

    uchhal kar kisi samt-e-be-nam ko chal daya tha

    phir ab tak alag un ke mehwar alag un ki rahen

    zamin bhi andheri

    musafir bhi be-nur

    lekin use kya pata tha ki ek din zamin

    sari gahraiyan paT kar aa milegi

    to aflak ke andhe rah-rau se puchhen

    ki ye lamha-e-wasl kah

    tujh ko kaisa laga hai
