Aashufta Changezi

  • Ghazal


aankhon ke samne koi manzar naya na tha


āñkhoñ ke sāmne koī manzar nayā na thā
bas vo zarā sā fāsla baaqī rahā na thā

ab is safar kā silsila shāyad hī ḳhatm ho
sab apnī apnī raah leñ ham ne kahā na thā

darvāze aaj band samajhiye sulūk ke
ye chalne vaalā duur talak silsila na thā

ūñchī uḌaan ke liye par taulte the ham
ūñchā.iyoñ pe saañs ghuTegī patā na thā

koshish hazār kartī raheñ tez āñdhiyāñ
lekin vo ek patta abhī tak hilā na thā

sab hī shikār-gāh meñ the ḳhema-zan magar
koī shikār karne ko ab tak uThā na thā

achchhā huā ki gosha-nashīnī kī iḳhtiyār
'āshufta' aur is ke sivā rāsta na thā

aankhon ke samne koi manzar naya na tha
bas wo zara sa fasla baqi raha na tha

ab is safar ka silsila shayad hi KHatm ho
sab apni apni rah len hum ne kaha na tha

darwaze aaj band samajhiye suluk ke
ye chalne wala dur talak silsila na tha

unchi uDan ke liye par taulte the hum
unchaiyon pe sans ghuTegi pata na tha

koshish hazar karti rahen tez aandhiyan
lekin wo ek patta abhi tak hila na tha

sab hi shikar-gah mein the KHema-zan magar
koi shikar karne ko ab tak uTha na tha

achchha hua ki gosha-nashini ki iKHtiyar
'ashufta' aur is ke siwa rasta na tha
