Ghazal-Akhtar Yeh Dil Bhi Aap Ka Bigra Huwa Nawab Hay


Mana ke roshini teri taron main lajawab hay,
Akhtar-e-sham bujh bhi ja aamade mah-e-tab hay.
Kaisi giran muhabbaten jane kahan lutai haiyn,
Akhtar yeh dil bhi aap ka bigra huwa nawab hay.
Aariz damak ke kah gaye, naguftahaye raz-e-dil,
Akhtar tumhare dost ka chehra khuli kitab hay.
Akhtar tumhem quasam meri jao na aaj rat tum,
Kali ghataen chai hain, mausam bara kharab hay.
Akhtar yeh lams-e-aatisheen jam-o-subu men bhi nahin,
Ek ahmareen sharab hay ya ghuncha-e-gulab hay.
Akhtar baja hayn aap bhi lekin zara bataiye,
Peshani aap ki huzoor keyun aaj aab aab hay.
Akhtar barha to hat gaye, Akhtar khincha to aaye pas,
Keya dilnasheen yeh khel hay, kitna haseen sarab hay.
Akhtar tumhen jo jeena hay to khawab dekhte raho,
Ke zindagi woh khawab hay jo khawab bin azab hay.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
