akhtar-hoshiyarpuri

Tha Ek Saya Sa Pichhe Pichhe Jo Mud Ke dekha To Kuchh Nahin Tha

tha ek saaya sa pichhe pichhe jo muḌ ke dekha to kuchh nahin tha

ab apni surat ko dekhta huun kabhi jo sad-paikar-afrin tha

vo phir bhi jaan se aziz-tar tha tabi.aten go juda juda thiin

agarche ham-zad bhi nahin tha vo mera ham-shakl bhi nahin tha

main ruk sakunga Thahar sakunga thakan safar ki miTa sakunga

kahin to koi shajar milega tamam raste yahi yaqin tha

kai chaTanen gudaz jismon men apni garmi se dhal gai thiin

buton ke qisse men tesha-karon ka tazkira bhi kahin kahin tha

na jaane kya dhund darmiyan thi ki kohkan ki nazar na pahunchi

jahan se phuTa tha chashma-e-mah-shab ka patthar bhi to vahin tha

main apni avaz ke ta.aqub men mavara-e-nazar bhi pahuncha

magar palaT kar na us ne puchha ki main ḳhala ke bahut qarin tha

vahi manazir luTe luTe se vahi shikasta makan ‘aḳhtar’

main roz-marra ke raste se jo ghar men pahuncha bahut hazin tha
