Naqsh-E-Taswir Na Wo Sang Ka Paikar Koi

naqsh-e-tasvīr na vo sañg kā paikar koī

us ko jab dekho badal jaatā hai manzar koī

kashish-e-harf-e-tabassum hai laboñ meñ rū-posh

gosha-e-chashm se hañstā hai sitamgar koī

jurra-e-āḳhir-e-mai hai ki girāñ-ḳhvābī-e-shab

chāñd sā Duub rahā hai mire andar koī

chaḌhte dariyā sā vo paikar vo ghaTā se gesū

rāsta dekh rahā hai mirā manzar koī

sadaf-e-bahr se niklī hai abhī laila-e-shab

apnī muTThī meñ chhupā.e hue gauhar koī

kho gayā phir kahīñ aflāk kī pahnā.ī meñ

der tak chamkā kiyā TuuTā huā par koī

saf-e-a.adā hai mire sāmne aur pusht pe haiñ

na farishte na abābīloñ kā lashkar koī

TuuT kar girtī hai uupar mire chaTTān ki hai

bai.at-e-sañg mire dast-e-hunar par koī

raat bhar tāqat-e-parvāz ugātī hai unheñ

kaaT detā hai sahar-dam mire shahpar koī

mere qātil ne baḌhā dī mire sach kī tauqīr

is sile ke liye mauzūñ thā payambar koī

aaj is qarya-e-vīrāñ meñ ye aahaT kaisī

dil ke andar hai koī aur na bāhar koī

kisī jhāḌī se kiran chhūTī hai sūraj kī ki ‘zeb’

chamak uTThā hai kisī haath meñ ḳhanjar koī
