  • Ghazal


go dur ho chuka hun yaran-e-anjuman se


go duur ho chukā huuñ yārān-e-anjuman se
lekin mafar nahīñ hai ehsās kī chubhan se

husn-e-nazar kā jaadū sar chaḌh ke boltā hai
asnām-e-marmarīñ bhī lagte haiñ sīm-tan se

ġhuncha hī phuul ban kar jān-e-chaman huā hai
maiñ ne yaqīñ kī daulat paa.ī hai husn-e-zan se

aaj un ke rāstoñ meñ kāñTe bichhe hue haiñ
kal tak jo khelte the rañgīnī-e-chaman se

jaise chaman se nik.hat jaise sadaf se motī
aise judā huā huuñ maiñ jannat-e-vatan se

maiñ rāz-e-rañg-o-bū se nā-āshnā nahīñ huuñ
mujh ko gila bhī kab hai phūloñ kī anjuman se

merī ġhazal 'urūj' ik tasvīr-e-asr-e-nau hai
maiñ ne use sañvārā tahzīb-e-fikr-o-fan se

go dur ho chuka hun yaran-e-anjuman se
lekin mafar nahin hai ehsas ki chubhan se

husn-e-nazar ka jadu sar chaDh ke bolta hai
asnam-e-marmarin bhi lagte hain sim-tan se

ghuncha hi phul ban kar jaan-e-chaman hua hai
main ne yaqin ki daulat pai hai husn-e-zan se

aaj un ke raston mein kanTe bichhe hue hain
kal tak jo khelte the rangini-e-chaman se

jaise chaman se nikhat jaise sadaf se moti
aise juda hua hun main jannat-e-watan se

main raaz-e-rang-o-bu se na-ashna nahin hun
mujh ko gila bhi kab hai phulon ki anjuman se

meri ghazal 'uruj' ek taswir-e-asr-e-nau hai
main ne use sanwara tahzib-e-fikr-o-fan se
