अब और नहीं : ग़ज़ल


Indian Bloggers

Her spirit craves to come out of the shell and strives for the sky of her share! My Ghazal portrays the plight of a woman in search of her true self and identity.

पथरीली  ज़मीं पे राहतें अब और नहीं,
तपिश में जले पाँव, मंज़िल का कहीं ठौर नहीं.


धूप में जलके मैंने, छाँव की क्या करली ख़्वाहिश,
रेत में जली मग़र नख़लिस्तां में कहीं ठौर नहीं.


दो ग़ज़ ज़मीं की थी तलाश, उन रहनुमाओं में,
वहां तलक पहुँच हुई फ़ना, किया ये ग़ौर नहीं.


कैसे दूँ मैं आपको अपनी इन साँसों का हिसाब,
सांस लेती भला कैसे, मयस्सर हवा अब और नहीं.


अपनी मुट्ठी में भरी ख्वाहिशें कसकर बाँधीं,
मेरे हिस्से का आसमां बंटेगा और नहीं.


Pathrili zamin pe rahatein ab aur nahi
Tapish me jale paanv, manzil ka kahin thaur nahi.


Dhoop me jalke maine chaanv ki kya kerli khwahish
Ret me jali magar nakhlistan me kahin thaur nahi.


Do ghaz zamin ki thi talash, un rehnumaon me
Wahan talak pahunch hui fana, kiya ye gaur nahi.


Kaise doon main apko apni in saanson ka hissab,

Saans leti bhala kaise, mayassar hawa ab aur nahi.


Apni mutthi me bhari kwahishen kasker bandhin,
Mere hisse ka asman bantenga aur nahi.

  • Soulful..As always..Beautifully penned!👌👌

  • Very powerful choice of words. Though written by you with a women in mind, I felt that it could apply to anyone-a woman or man, who keeps on running after desires, only to find at the end whether what he got was actually what he really desired.

    Good to see the optimism at the last lines.

    And yes, you have placed very powerful images in your recently posted haikus.

    • You are so right Saketji. Life turns out to be a mirage when we run after our desires, and it’s regardless of any gender.
      Thank you so much for your words of appreciation. Glad that you liked my haiku too. Means a lot. 🙂
