Sher 20

dekheñ qarīb se bhī to achchhā dikhā.ī de

ik aadmī to shahr meñ aisā dikhā.ī de

dekhen qarib se bhi to achchha dikhai de

ek aadmi to shahr mein aisa dikhai de

kitnī āsānī se mash.hūr kiyā hai ḳhud ko

maiñ ne apne se baḌe shaḳhs ko gaalī de kar

kitni aasani se mashhur kiya hai KHud ko

main ne apne se baDe shaKHs ko gali de kar

merī ik chhoTī koshish tujh ko paane ke liye

ban ga.ī hai mas.ala saare zamāne ke liye

meri ek chhoTi si koshish tujh ko pane ke liye

ban gai hai masala sare zamane ke liye

āsmāñ aisā bhī kyā ḳhatra thā dil aag se

itnī bārish ek shole ko bujhāne ke liye

aasman aisa bhi kya KHatra tha dil ki aag se

itni barish ek shole ko bujhane ke liye

chhat Tapaktī thī agarche phir bhī aa jaatī thī niind

maiñ na.e ghar meñ bahut royā purāne ke liye

chhat Tapakti thi agarche phir bhi aa jati thi nind

main nae ghar mein bahut roya purane ke liye

Doha 6

man sahrā hai pyaas tan zaḳhmoñ sej

saarī dhartī karbalā maulā paanī bhej

man sahra hai pyas ka tan zaKHmon ki sej

sari dharti karbala maula pani bhej

charwahe ko dudh de ya tajir ko un

parbat ho to pheñk duuñ kisī tarah ai jaan

kyā chhātī pe hai dharā ḳhud maiñ anjān

parbat ho to phenk dun kisi tarah ai jaan

kya chhati pe hai dhara KHud main hi anjaan

kaun yahan jo hath mein sara yug le tham

ek sira jo chhu sake bahut baDa ye kaam

hare-bhare kuchh dhyān the aur na thā kuchh paas

pāñv-tale se khīñch kis ne ThanDī ghaas

hare-bhare kuchh dhyan the aur na tha kuchh pas

panw-tale se khinch li kis ne ThanDi ghas
