ahmad-javed

Ek Surma Ke Nam

aane vaale din ke akhir par

suraj tuuti hui Dhaal ki tarah

ufuq par chaspan ek hunut kiya hua sar

kisi surma ka

jo vaqt se haar gaya!

bagule aisi hava aur ek ranga hua ghoda

lahu-luhan dil hamesha ghad leta hai ek duniya apne liye

mohabbat kahin ziyada saffak hai nafrat se

kyun-ki ye achhuti aur ujli hai

us sitare ki tarah

jo kanda hai ek muqaddas qurban-gah ki chhat par

zindagi! hasht!

haan magar maut ek pul hai shikasta aur charcharata

abdiyat ke bojh-tale

kahan hai tumhara rath jo

tarikh se ziyada tez chalta hai

aur kahan hai tumhara jhanDa

jis ka saaya

zamin par nahin padta
