Sambhla raha hai kon, nashe me gira hai kon?

ab mahfil e ghazal me ghazal aashna hai kon
maana ke aik ham hain, magar dusra hai kon

Tum apni anjuman ka zara jaaiza to lo
kahne ko to chiraaG bahut thay, jala hai kon?

Maine jo chhedi apni apni nai tarz ki ghazal
wo puchhne lage ke ye naghma sara hai kon

sab dekhte jidhar hai, udhar kya hai kuchh nahi
ham dekhte jidhar hain, udhar dekhta hai kon

Daawa sukhan ka sabko hai, lekin tamaam umr,
Ek dushman e sukhan se mukhatib raha hai kon


An Incomplete Ghazal

A Poet loves his Ghazal as a father loves his son and when looks at and feels the beauty of every phrase, every word and every letter of his ghazal, he reaches the heights of tranquillity. If we deeply analyse the behaviours of few poets, individually, we will find that every poet has his own style of speech which could be identified individually as fingerprints. A lot of times just by reading the first line of newly written ghazal an expert can tell the name of the poet. Though this uniqueness lies in the Ghazals of all the writers but when the poet reaches the higher levels he makes his identity memorised to his lovers. To reach this level the poet has to pass through a lot of phases which is not an easy task. To reach this level Ghalib had to search the vast forests of possibilities but all that he perceived was just a foot mark. Faiz had to put his tongue in a loop of chain to attain that level.

The poetry of Shamim Hashimi seems to be soaked in sobs and tears of night, the dew,
which evaporates sketching diamonds on the leaves and petals but leaves the glittering
sign of its existence. He writes:
Urdu: “Sair e chaman karuN to wahaN bhi na ji lagey
PhooloN ki dilkashi me tumhari kami lagey”
