Badalti Rut Pe Hawaon Ke Sakht Pahre The

badalti rut pe havaon ke sakht pahre the

lahu lahu thi nazar daagh daagh chehre the

ye raaz khul na saka harf-e-narsa pe mire

sadaen tez bahut thiin ki log bahre the

vo pujne ki siyasat se khuub vaqif tha

vahi chadhae jo gende ke zard sehre the

jo bhaai laut ke aae kabhi na dariya se

unhin ke baazu qavi the badan ikahre the

usi sabab se mira aks tuut tuut gaya

us aaine men kai aur bhi to chehre the

samundaron ka vo pyasa tha aur os thi main

vo abr laut gaya jis ke lab sunahre the

in anchalon pe koi sajda-rez ho na saka

ki jin ke rang bahut shokh aur gahre the

samaaton ke dhundlakon men kho gae ‘shabnam’

vo saare lafz jo palkon pe aa ke thahre the
