Kohre Ka Khet

vo sard raat jabki safar kar raha tha main

ranginiyon se zarf-e-nazar bhar raha tha main

tezi se jangalon men udi ja rahi thi rail

khvabida kaenat ko chaunka rahi thi rail

mudti uchhalti kanpti chinghadti hui

kohre ki vo dabiz rida phadti hui

pahiyon ki gardishon men machalti thi ragni

aahan se aag ban ke nikalti thi ragni

pahunchi jidhar zamin ka kaleja hila diya

daman men tirgi ke gareban bana diya

jhonke hava ke barf bichhate the raah men

jalve sama rahe the laraz kar nigah men

dhoke se chhu gaiin jo kahin sard ungliyan

bichchhu sa Dank marne lagti thiin khidkiyan

pichhle pahar ka narm dhundlaka tha pur-fishan

mayusiyon men jaise umidon ka karvan

be-nur ho ke Dubne vaala tha mahtab

kohre men khup gai thi sitaron ki ab-o-tab

qabze se tirgi ke sahar chhutne ko thi

mashriq ke hashiye men kiran phutne ko thi

kohre men tha Dhake hue baghon ka ye saman

jis tarah zer-e-ab jhalakti hon bastiyan

bhigi hui zamin thi nami si faza men thi

ik kisht-e-barf thi ki muallaq hava men thi

jaadu ke farsh sehr ke sab saqf-o-bam the

dosh-e-hava pe pariyon ke simin khiyam the

thi thande thande nuur men khoi hui nigah

Dhal kar faza men aai thi huron ki khvab-gah

ban ban ke phen su-e-falak dekhta hua

dariya chala tha chhod ke daman zamin ka

is shabnami dhundalke men bagule the yuun ravan

maujon pe mast ho ke chalen jaise machhliyan

Daala kabhi fazaon men khat kho gae kabhi

jhalke kabhi ufuq men nihan ho gae kabhi

engine se ud ke kanpta phirta tha yuun dhuan

leta tha lahr khet men kohre ke asman

us vaqt kya tha ruuh pe sadma na puchhiye

yaad aa raha tha kis se bichhadna na puchhiye

dil men kuchh aise ghaav the tir-e-malal ke

ro ro diya tha khidki se gardan nikal ke
