akhtar-hoshiyarpuri

Kya Puchhte Ho Mujhse Ki Main Kis Nagar Ka Tha

kya puchhte ho mujh se ki main kis nagar ka tha

jalta hua charagh miri rah-guzar ka tha

ham jab safar pe nikle the taron ki chhanv thi

phir apne ham-rikab ujala sahar ka tha

sahil ki giili ret ne baḳhsha tha pairahan

jaise samundaron ka safar chashm-e-tar ka tha

chehre pe uḌti gard thi balon men raakh thi

shayad vo ham-safar mire ujḌe nagar ka tha

kya chiḳhti havaon se ahval puchhta

saaya hi yadgar mire ham-safar ka tha

yaksaniyat thi kitni hamare vajud men

apna jo haal tha vahi aalam bhanvar ka tha

vo kaun tha jo le ke mujhe ghar se chal paḌa

surat ḳhizar ki thi na vo chehra ḳhizar ka tha

dahliz paar kar na sake aur lauT aae

shayad musafiron ko ḳhatar bam-o-dar ka tha

kachche makan jitne the barish men bah gae

varna jo mera dukh tha vo dukh umr bhar ka tha

main us gali se kaise guzarta jhuka ke sar

aḳhir ko ye muamla bhi sang-o-sar ka tha

logon ne ḳhud hi kaaT diye raston ke peḌ

‘aḳhtar’ badalti rut men ye hasil nazar ka tha
