Chand Raat

gae baras ki iid ka din kya achchha tha

chand ko dekh ke us ka chehra dekha tha

faza men ‘keats’ ke lahje ki narmahat thi

mausam apne rang men ‘faiz’ ka misra tha

dua ke be-avaz uluhi lamhon men

vo lamha bhi kitna dilkash lamha tha

haath utha kar jab aankhon hi aankhon men

us ne mujh ko apne rab se manga tha

phir mere chehre ko hathon men le kar

kitne pyaar se mera matha chuma thaa!

hava! kuchh aaj ki shab ka bhi ahval suna

kya vo apni chhat par aaj akela thaa?

ya koi mere jaisi saath thi aur us ne

chand ko dekh ke us ka chehra dekha thaa?
