yun bhi dil ahbab ke humne gahe gahe rakkhe the

jaane qalam ki aankh mein kis ka zuhur tha

band fasilen shahr ki toDen zat ki girhen kholen

lafzon ke sahra mein kya mani ke sarab dikhana bhi

sabaq umr ka ya zamane ka hai

be-masraf be-hasil dukh

har ek lamhe ki rag mein dard ka rishta dhaDakta hai

maut se aage soch ke aana phir ji lena

daraKHt ruh ke jhume parind gane lage

hum apne zaKHm kuredte hain wo zaKHm parae dhote the

khile hain phul ki surat tere visal ke din

bahut malul baDe shadman gae hue hain

khuli jab aankh to dekha ki duniya sar pe rakkhi hai

jitne marka-e-dil wo lagatar gaya

mizaj-e-sahal-talab apna ruKHsaten mange

KHarab-e-dard hue gham-parastiyon mein rahe

Abdul Hamid

12

kitni mahbub thi zindagi kuchh nahin kuchh nahin

kisi dasht o dar se guzarna bhi kya

sae phail gae kheton par kaisa mausam hone laga

kuchh apna pata de kar hairan bahut rakkha

ek KHuda par takiya kar ke baiTh gae hain

panw rukte hi nahin zehn Thaharta hi nahin

use dekh kar apna mahbub pyara bahut yaad aaya

ek mishal thi bujha di usne

kisi ka qahr kisi ki dua mile to sahi

ajib shai hai ki surat badalti jati hai

dil mein jo baat hai batate nahin

kabhi dekho to maujon ka taDapna kaisa lagta hai

Abul Hasanat Haqqi

Ahmad Faraz

ye shahr sehr-zada hai sada kisi ki nahin

misal-e-dast-e-zuleKHa tapak chahta hai

main to maqtal mein bhi qismat ka sikandar nikla

dukh fasana nahin ki tujhse kahen

dil-girafta hi sahi bazm saja li jae

hum bhi shair the kabhi jaan-e-suKHan yaad nahin

is qadar musalsal thin shiddaten judai ki

jaan se ishq aur jahan se gurez

silsile toD gaya wo sabhi jate jate

wahshaten baDhti gain hijr ke aazar ke sath

jo dikh raha usi ke andar jo an-dikha hai wo shairi hai

jo hum pe guzre the ranj sare jo KHud pe guzre to log samjhe

Ain Tabish

KHaksari thi ki bin dekhe hi hum KHak hue

aansuon ke ratjagon se

ek shahr tha ek bagh tha

ghani siyah zulf badliyon si bila sabab mujh mein jagti hai

yahan ke rang baDe dil-pazir hue hain

badalne ka koi mausam nahin hota

ghubar-e-jahan mein chhupe ba-kamalon ki saf dekhta hun

wahi junun ki soKHta-jaani wahi fusun afsanon ka

meri tanhai ke ejaz mein shamil hai wahi

hayat-e-soKHta-saman ek istiara-e-sham

aawara bhaTakta raha paigham kisi ka

Ajmal Siraj

yun mere hone ko mujh par aashkar usne kiya

ye kar-e-zindagi tha to karna paDa mujhe

ki jaise koi musafir watan mein lauT aae

shahr mein sare charaghon ki ziya KHamosh hai

KHud ko har aarzu ke us par kar liya hai

kandhon se zindagi ko utarne nahin diya

ban ke saya hi sahi sat to hoti hogi

kabhi to bante hue aur kabhi bigaDte hue

wo marka ki aaj bhi sar ho nahin saka

mazid ek bar par bar-e-giran rakkha gaya hai

dard ki sakit nadi phir se rawan hone ko hai

samundar se kisi lamhe bhi tughyani nahin jati

ai dil tere tufail jo mujh par sitam hue

talatum hai na jaan-lewa bhanwar hai

sach ki KHatir sab kuchh khoya kaun likhega

zamana kuchh bhi kahe teri aarzu kar lun

talatum hai na jaan-lewa bhanwar hai

har ek lamha-e-gham bahr-e-be-karan ki tarah

har ek lamha-e-gham bahr-e-be-karan ki tarah

zamana kuchh bhi kahe teri aarzu kar lun

kabhi jo uski tamanna zara biphar jae

ai dil tere tufail jo mujh par sitam hue

kabhi jo uski tamanna zara biphar jae

dard ki sakit nadi phir se rawan hone ko hai

samundar se kisi lamhe bhi tughyani nahin jati

sach ki KHatir sab kuchh khoya kaun likhega

Arzoo Lakhnavi

kyun kisi rah-rau se puchhun apni manzil ka pata

wo sar-e-baam kab nahin aata

hum aaj khaenge ek tir imtihan ke liye

dur the hosh-o-hawas apne se bhi begana tha

husn se sharh hui ishq ke afsane ki

nazar us chashm pe hai jam liye baiTha hun

dil mein yaad-e-but-e-be-pir liye baiTha hun

meri nigah kahan did-e-husn-e-yar kahan

Ashfaq Husain

fikr mein hain hamein bujhane ki

tamam shaKHsiyat uski hasin nazar aai

nazar ki zad mein sar koi nahin hai

jaane aaya tha kyun makan se main

ghar to hamara shoalon ke narghe mein aa gaya

qayamat aaegi mana ye hadisa hoga

wo mujhse mera taaruf karane aaya tha

kitaben jab koi paDhta nahin tha

har ek raat ko mahtab dekhne ke liye

haqiqaton ka nai rut ki hai irada kya

rang hai dil ka mere

zindan ki ek subh

KHatm hui barish-e-sang

teri surat jo dil-nashin ki hai

shishon ka masiha koi nahin

pas raho

shafaq ki rakh mein jal bujh gaya sitara-e-sham

tarana

nisar main teri galiyon ke

yahan se shahr ko dekho

dard aaega dabe panw

kabhi hanste nahin kabhi rote nahin kabhi koi gunah nahin karte

har gali kuche mein rone ki sada meri hai

jism ki kuchh aur abhi miTTi nikal

jism ke par wo diya sa hai

tu mujhko jo is shahr mein laya nahin hota

ab dil ki taraf dard ki yalghaar bahut hai

main rona chahta hun KHub rona chahta hun main

sune siyah shahr pe manzar-pazir main

us taraf tu teri yaktai hai

is zamin aasman ke the hi nahin

is zamin aasman ke the hi nahin

kisi ke samne is tarah surKH-ru hogi

ye wo safar hai jahan KHun-baha zaruri hai

jo tu nahin hai to lagta hai ab ki tu kya hai

chashm-e-hairat ko talluq ki faza tak le gaya

pyar jadu hai kisi dil mein utar jaega

munawwar jism-o-jaan hone lage hain

ghubar-e-tang-zehni surat-e-KHanjar nikalta hai

de gaya likh kar wo bas itna juda hote hue

muddat se wo KHushbu-e-hina hi nahin aai

muztarib dil ki kahani aur hai

kitabon se na danish ki farawani se aaya hai

kuchh naya karne ki KHwahish mein purane ho gae

Fatima Hasan

mulk-e-suKHan mein dard ki daulat ko kya hua

hijr ki dhup mein chhanw jaisi baaten karte hain

KHwab ki tarah bikhar jaane ko ji chahta hai

gham-e-jahan ko sharmsar karne wale kya hue

samundar is qadar shorida-sar kyun lag raha hai

shahr ilm ke darwaze par

ye moajiza bhi kisi ki dua ka lagta hai

sitara-war jale phir bujha diye gae hum

sitaron se bhara ye aasman kaisa lagega

inhin mein jite inhin bastiyon mein mar rahte

ek sawal

wafa ki KHair manata hun bewafai mein bhi
