Dhundlaayi Hui Shaam Thi..

Dhundlaayi hui shaam thi,
alsaayi hui si..
aur waqt bhi baasi tha main jab shehar mein aaya,
har shaakh se lipte hue sannaate khade the..
deewaaron se chipki hui khaamoshi padi thi..
raahon mein nafas koi na parchhaiyan na saya,
un galiyon mein qoochon mein andhera na ujaala,
darwaazon ke pat band the, khaali the dareeche,
bas waqt ke kuchh baasi se tukde the, pade the…

Main ghumta phirta tha sar-e shehar akela..
darwaazon pe aawaaz lagata tha, koi hai?
har mod pe ruk jaata tha shayad koi aaye..
lekin koi aahat, koi saaya bhi na aaya. !

Ye shehar achaanak hi magar jaag pada hai..
aawaazen hiraasat mein liye mujh ko khadi hain.
aawaazon ke iss shehar mein main qaid pada hun. !!

Kis Qadar Seedha, Sahal, Saaf Hai Raasta Dekho..

Kis qadar seedha, sahal, saaf hai raasta dekho..
na kisi shaakh ka saaya hai, na deewaar ki tek.
na kisi aankh ki aahat, na kisi chehre ka shor,
door tak koi nahin.. koi nahin.. koi nahin.

Chand kadmon ke nishaan, haan kabhi milte hain kahin
saath chalte hain jo kuchh door faqat chand kadam,
aur phir toot ke gir jaate hain ye kehte hue..
apni tanhaai liye aap chalo, tanha akele!
saath aaye jo yahan.. koi nahin.. koi nahin. !!

Subah Subah Ek Khwaab Ki Dastak Par Darwaaza Khola..

Subah subah ek khwaab ki dastak par darwaaza khola,
dekha sarhad ke uss paar se kuchh mehmaan aaye hain..
aankhon se maanoos the saare,
chehre saare sune sunaaye..
paanv dhoye, haath dhulaaye..
aangan mein aasan lagwaaye..
aur tandoor pe makki ke kuchh mote mote rot pakaaye..
Potali mein mehmaan mere,
pichhle saalon ki faslon ka gudd laaye the.

Aankh khuli toh dekha ghar mein koyi nahin tha.
haath lagaa kar dekha toh tandoor abhi tak bujha nahin tha..
aur hontho par mithe gudd ka zaaiqa ab tak chipak raha tha.

Khwaab tha shaayad!
khwaab hi hoga!!
sarhad par kal raat suna hai chali thi goli,
Sarhad par kal raat, suna hai..
kuchh khwaabon ka khoon hua tha …!

Bas Ek Jhagde Ka Lamha Tha.. [ Khudkushi ]

Bas ek jhagde ka lamha tha..
dar-o deewaar par aise chhanaake se giri aawaaz,
jaise kaanch girta hai.
Har ek shayy mein gayi udti hui,
jalti hui kirchein..
Nazar mein, baat mein, lehje mein, soch aur saans ke andar..
lahoo hona tha ek rishte ka.. so woh ho gaya uss din!

Ussi aawaaz ke tukde uthaa ke farsh se uss shab,
kisi ne kaat li nabzen..
na ki aawaaz tak kuchh bhi,
ki koi jaag na jaaye. !!

Shehtoot Ki Shaakh Pe Baitha Koi..

Shehtoot ki shaakh pe baitha koi,
buntaa hai resham ke taage.
Lamha lamha khol raha hai..
patta patta been raha hai..
ek ek saans baja kar sunta hai saudaai!
ek ek saans ko khol ke apne tann par liptaata jata hai.

Apni hi saanson ka qaidi,
resham ka ye shayar ek din..
apne hi taagon mein ghut kar mar jaayega .!!

Pedd Ke Patton Mein Hulchul Hai Khabardaar Se Hain..

Pedd ke patton mein hulchul hai khabardaar se hain,
shaam se tezz hawa chalne ke aasaar se hain.

Na’khuda dekh raha hai ki main girdaab mein hun,
aur jo pul pe khade log hain akhbaar se hain.

Chadhte sailaab mein saahil ne toh munh dhaanp liya,
log paani ka kafan lene ko taiyyaar se hain.

Kal twaarikh mein dafnaaye gaye the jo log,
un ke saaye abhi darwaazon pe bedaar se hain.

Waqt ke teer ko seene pe sambhaale hum ne,
aur jo neel pade hain teri guftaar se hain.

Rooh se chhile hue jism jahan bikte hain,
hum ko bhi bech de hum bhi ussi bazaar se hain.

Jab se woh ahl-e siyaasat mein hue hain shaamil,
kuchh udhar ke hain toh kuchh mere tarafdaar se hain. !!
