  • ہم سرد نگر کے باسی ہیں

    ہم سرد نگر کے باسی ہیں
    اے گرم ہوا کچھ  دیر تو آ
    ہر اور  ہوا یوں چلتی ہے
    جیسے اک برف کا طوفاں ہو
    ہر رنگ گیا ہے ڈھل ایسے
    اک رنگ نظر کو دکھتا ہے
    اس کارن بھی من دکھتا ہے
    پورب کی جبیں پر برف اگے
    پچھم کے لبوں پہ آہیں ہیں
    اتر دکشن … Continue reading

    Eyelashes along with eyebrows brooding
    Over thorns … Continue reading

  • رنگ وکري ته ويا ڏينهن جي ويسَ تان

    رنگ وکري ته ويا ڏينهن جي ويس تان
    اُسّ آڪاس ۾ تِروِرا ٿي وئي
    رات ڄڻ بيوسيءَ جي فضا ٿي وئي
    آس، اميد ڄڻ ڪا سزا ٿي وئي
    تون نه آئين ته هينئڙو ڍرو ٿي وَيو
    ڪو نه ڏونگر هيو، پر ذرو ٿي وَيو
    ڪي ته سپنا هيا، جي وَيا پَنّ ٿي
