Dekh Lo Ge Khud!

darkhto? muntazir ho!

paniyon men jhankte kya ho?

khade ho sakit-o-jamid

khud apne aks ki hairaniyon men gum

tako ik dusre ka munh

raho yuun istada

paniyon ko kya

yunhin bahte rahenge

aks jo jhalkega

sath-e-ab bas aina ban kar jagmagaegi

hava jo mauj men aai

to bas lahron se khelegi

tumhare Dagmagate aks ko

koi sambhala tak nahin dega!

tumhare apne patte taliyan pitenge

san-san sansanahat se hava ki

kanpti shakhen

karengi kya

kanar-e-abju mah-ru

taka karta tha ghanton mahviyat se

ishtiyaq-e-did ka aalam

har ik patte ki ankhon men

tumhara dilruba mah-ru

vo ab laute bhala kaise

darkhto bhuul sakti hai kahan

vo shakl

jis ko dekh kar paani ki ankhen

is tarah se jagmagati thiin

ki us ko dekhne

qaus-e-quzah ke rang

hanste khilkhilate

aa gale lagte the lahron se!

kai ik baar tum ne bhi

usi ki chaah men

jhuk kar

hava-e-tez men bhi

be-khatar

chumi thi peshani isi paani ki

jo mil kar havaon se

jadon men bhar raha hai nam!

use kis baat ka hai gham

giroge munh ke bal to

qahqaha paani ka sun lena!

tumhen apni tahon men yuun chhupaega

khabar tak bhi nahin hogi kisi ko

tum yahan par the

baha le jaega

anjan se un sahilon tak

aur

vahan un sahilon par

khas-o-khashak men Dhal kar

tumhari muntazir ankhen salamat rah gaiin to

dekh loge khud

vahi mah-ru

palat kar jo kabhi aaya nahin thaa!
