Ghazal 62

Nazm 22

Sher 69

na jaane sher meñ kis dard havāla thā

ki jo bhī lafz thā vo dil dukhāne vaalā thā

na jaane sher mein kis dard ka hawala tha

ki jo bhi lafz tha wo dil dukhane wala tha

sach to kah duuñ magar is daur ke insānoñ ko

baat jo dil se nikaltī hai burī lagtī hai

sach to kah dun magar is daur ke insanon ko

baat jo dil se nikalti hai buri lagti hai

dar-ba-dar Thokareñ khā.īñ to ye mālūm huā

ghar kise kahte haiñ kyā chiiz hai be-ghar honā

dar-ba-dar Thokaren khain to ye malum hua

ghar kise kahte hain kya chiz hai be-ghar hona

ghaas meñ jazb hue hoñge zamīñ ke aañsū

paañv rakhtā huuñ to halkī namī lagtī hai

ghas mein jazb hue honge zamin ke aansu

panw rakhta hun to halki si nami lagti hai

nikal ga.e haiñ jo bādal barasne vaale the

ye shahr aab ko tarsegā chashm-e-tar ke baġhair

nikal gae hain jo baadal barasne wale the

ye shahr aab ko tarsega chashm-e-tar ke baghair
