aatā huuñ maiñ zamāne kī āñkhoñ meñ raat din
lekin ḳhud apnī nazroñ se ab tak nihāñ huuñ maiñ
aata hun main zamane ki aankhon mein raat din
lekin KHud apni nazron se ab tak nihan hun main
Hanfi acquired a taste for poetry during his stay in Mhow. He published his first poetry collection Sung Pairahan in 1958 which showed the impact of Progressive poetics. He grew later as a modernist of great promise and fulfillment. This is well borne out by his later collections of poems Shajar-e-Sada, Shab Gasht, and his long poem Salsat-ul-Jaras. He also wrote critical books on Amir Khusro and poetry and poetics called Sher Cheeze Deegar Ast which takes into account a whole range of Eastern and Western poetics.
