”patthar ki zaban” ki shaera ne

ik mahfil-e-sher-o-shaeri men

jab nazm sunate mujh ko dekha

kuchh soch ke dil men muskurai

jab mez par ham mile to us ne

badh kar mire haath aise thame

jaise mujhe khojti ho kab se

phir mujh se kaha ki aaj, ‘parvin’!

jab sher sunate tum ko dekha

main khud ko bahut hi yaad aai

vo vaqt ki jab tumhari surat

main bhi yunhi sher kah rahi thi

likhti thi isi tarah ki nazmen

par ab to vo saari nazmen ghazlen

guzre hue khvab ki hain baten!

main sab ko Disown kar chuki huun!

”patthar ki zaban” ki shaera ke

chambeli se narm haath thame

”khushbu” ki safir sochti thi

dar-pesh havaon ke safar men

pal pal ki rafiq-e-rah mere

andar ki ye sada-lauh ‘Alice’

hairat ki jamil vadiyon se

vahshat ke muhib jangalon men

aaegi to us ka phul-lahja

kya jab bhi saba-nafas rahega!?

vo khud ko Disown kar sakegi!?
