    ek pal ke liye baiTh ke phir uTh baiThī

    aañkh ne sirf ye dekhā ki nashista but hai

    ye basārat ko na thī taab ki vo dekh sake

    kaise talvār chalī, kaise zamīñ siina

    ek lamhe ke liye chashme mānind banā

    pech khāte hue ye lahr uThī dil meñ mire

    kāsh! ye jhāḌiyāñ ik silsila-e-koh baneñ

    dāman-e-koh meñ maiñ ke sitāda ho jā.ūñ

    aisī anhonī jo ho jaa.e to kyuuñ ye bhī na ho

    ḳhushk pattoñ zamīñ par jo bichhā hai bistar

    vo bhī ik saaz bane saaz to hai saaz to hai

    naġhma bedār huā thā jo abhī kaan tire

    kyuuñ use sun na sake sunñe se majbūr rahe

    parda-e-chashm ne sirf ek nashista but ko

    zehn ke dā.era-e-ḳhās meñ markūz kiyā

    yaad aatā hai mujhe kaan hue the bedār

    ḳhushk pattoñ se jab aa.ī thī taḌapne sadā

    aur dāman har ik lahar chamak uTThī thī

    paḌ rahā thā usī talvār saaya shāyad

    jo nikal aa.ī thī ik pal meñ nihāñ-ḳhāne se

    jaise be-sāḳhta andāz meñ bijlī chamke

    lekin is dāman-e-ālūda har lahar miTī

    jal-parī dekhte dekhte rū-posh huī

    maiñ sitāda rahā maiñ ne na dekhā (afsos!)

    kaise talvār chalī kaise zamīñ siina

    ek lamhe ke liye chashme mānind banā

    dāman-e-koh meñ istāda nahīñ huuñ is vaqt

    jhāḌiyāñ silsila-e-koh nahīñ parda haiñ

    jis ke us paar jhalaktā nazar aatā hai mujhe

    manzar anjān, achhūtī dulhan sūrat

    haañ tasavvur ko maiñ ab apne banā kar dūlhā

    isī parde ke nihāñ-ḳhāne meñ le jā.ūñgā

    kaise talvār chalī kaise zamīñ siina

    dil-e-be-tāb mānind taḌap uTThā thā

    ek be-sāḳhta andāz meñ bijlī tarah

    jal-parī gosha-e-ḳhalvat se nikal aa.ī thii!

    zindagī garm thī har buuñd meñ aabī pā.ūñ

    ḳhushk pattoñ pe phisalte hue pahuñche the!

    maiñ bhī maujūd thā ik kirmak-e-be-nām-o-nishāñ

    maiñ ne dekhā ki ghaTā shaq huī dhārā niklī

    barq-raftārī se ik tiir kamāñ ne chhoḌā

    aur vo ḳham khā ke lachaktā huā tharrā ke girā

    qulla-e-koh se girte hue patthar tarah

    koī bhī rok na thī us ke liye us ke liye

    ḳhushk pattoñ zamīñ par bichhā thā bistar

    usī bistar pe vo anjān parī leT ga.ii!

    aur maiñ kirmak-e-be-nām, ghaTā sūrat

    isī ummīd meñ taktā rahā taktā rahā

    ab isī vaqt koī jal parī aa jaa.e

    bāñsurī haath meñ le kar maiñ gvālā ban jā.ūñ

    jal-parī aa.e kahāñ se? vo isī bistar par

    maiñ ne dekhā abhī āsūda huī leT ga.ī

    lekin afsos ki maiñ ab bhī khaḌā huuñ tanhā

    haath ālūda hai, nam-dār hai, dhundlī hai nazar,

    haath se āñkhoñ ke aañsū to nahīñ poñchhe the!

    ek hi pal ke liye baiTh ke phir uTh baiThi

    aankh ne sirf ye dekha ki nashista but hai

    ye basarat ko na thi tab ki wo dekh sake

    kaise talwar chali, kaise zamin ka sina

    ek lamhe ke liye chashme ki manind bana

    pech khate hue ye lahr uThi dil mein mere

    kash! ye jhaDiyan ek silsila-e-koh banen

    daman-e-koh mein main ja ke sitada ho jaun

    aisi anhoni jo ho jae to kyun ye bhi na ho

    KHushk patton ka zamin par jo bichha hai bistar

    wo bhi ek saz bane saz to hai saz to hai

    naghma bedar hua tha jo abhi kan tere

    kyun use sun na sake sunne se majbur rahe

    parda-e-chashm ne sirf ek nashista but ko

    zehn ke daera-e-KHas mein markuz kiya

    yaad aata hai mujhe kan hue the bedar

    KHushk patton se jab aai thi taDapne ki sada

    aur daman ki har ek lahar chamak uTThi thi

    paD raha tha usi talwar ka saya shayad

    jo nikal aai thi ek pal mein nihan-KHane se

    jaise be-saKHta andaz mein bijli chamke

    lekin is daman-e-aluda ki har lahar miTi

    jal-pari dekhte hi dekhte ru-posh hui

    main sitada hi raha main ne na dekha (afsos!)

    kaise talwar chali kaise zamin ka sina

    ek lamhe ke liye chashme ki manind bana

    daman-e-koh mein istada nahin hun is waqt

    jhaDiyan silsila-e-koh nahin parda hain

    jis ke us par jhalakta nazar aata hai mujhe

    manzar anjaan, achhuti si dulhan ki surat

    han tasawwur ko main ab apne bana kar dulha

    isi parde ke nihan-KHane mein le jaunga

    kaise talwar chali kaise zamin ka sina

    dil-e-be-tab ki manind taDap uTTha tha

    ek be-saKHta andaz mein bijli ki tarah

    jal-pari gosha-e-KHalwat se nikal aai thi!

    zindagi garm thi har bund mein aabi paun

    KHushk patton pe phisalte hue ja pahunche the!

    main bhi maujud tha ek kirmak-e-be-nam-o-nishan

    main ne dekha ki ghaTa shaq hui dhaara nikli

    barq-raftari se ek tir kaman ne chhoDa

    aur wo KHam kha ke lachakta hua tharra ke gira

    qulla-e-koh se girte hue patthar ki tarah

    koi bhi rok na thi us ke liye us ke liye

    KHushk patton ka zamin par hi bichha tha bistar

    usi bistar pe wo anjaan pari leT gai!

    aur main kirmak-e-be-nam, ghaTa ki surat

    isi ummid mein takta raha takta hi raha

    ab isi waqt koi jal ki pari aa jae

    bansuri hath mein le kar main gwala ban jaun

    jal-pari aae kahan se? wo isi bistar par

    main ne dekha abhi aasuda hui leT gai

    lekin afsos ki main ab bhi khaDa hun tanha

    hath aaluda hai, nam-dar hai, dhundli hai nazar,

    hath se aankhon ke aansu to nahin ponchhe the!
