An observatory

The clouds carry an excess baggage,
Disposing off,
Downsizing on the way
They pour
A few pints,
But why do they roar?
Declaring their clouded emptiness
Are they settling some scores,
Or roughly polishing their silver shores,
Winds wrap them up
in their folds,
Today, the sky is bereft of any borrowed gold,
But the pacific, silently watches them roar,
In its usual, observatory, the road.

Takalluff

Khidmatey zindagee aur kya pesh keroo,
dilo jigar kay baad,
Aabaad honay ki baat mat kerna,
hum to khemaa lay ker chal deeyay,
Aglay paarav ko, agarchey, aasman hai saaf,
Baat sirf takalluff ki thee,
So humnay, pooch leeya,
Verna, baitakullafee kaisee,
Vakt barbaad kernay kay baad.

The Galactic partners

To have a trans-galactic partner,
His unadultrated, remote sensing
Forceless fencing,
Transfusing powers, energizing
Imaculate imaging,
Heavenly supplies,
Are no star wars,
The transgalactic partners just do the sky gazing,
Open eyed,
Transfixed in their orbits,
Spin their universal timeless dreams,
In optic threads of electric blues and peacock greens,
Never measuring, their speeds,
They are just on the run,
A marathon,
Of the Suns and stars,
A few exploding,
A few fading
A few evading,
The galactic wars.

Khalee kagaz kee purdeeya

Kuch khalee pulinday hain
Dar aur dard kay,
Jo aksar, kagaz ki purdeeya say
Leeyay ghoomtain hain hum
Apnee jaibo mai.

Kuch khalee pulinday hain
Dar aur dard kay,
Khaalee kagaz, murray, huay
Vahmo kay,
Chutkee bhar khayyalo kay,
Aur unhay hum apna kehtay hain
Bund kamrey jo banayay humnay
mun kee, makree kay
chund Jaalo sai.
Aur unhay hum apna kehtay hain.

Kuch khalee pulinday hain
Dar aur dard kay,
Jo leeyay ghumtay hain
Saalo sai.

The killing

Sometimes,
the deadmen and deadwomen parade,
March, out and in,
in my dreams,
Sprinkling, hints,
On my psyche
To marinate
My being,
With a dead thing,
Bringing something to life,
In all its killing.

Sahar taq ka safar

Aaj mairey khwaabon ko
neend aa rahee hai,

Sab so gayay hain,
raat ko seenay say bheechaiyn,
Mairee palko kay neechey,
Unko, jo dar hai,
Ki woh sarakatee ja rahee hai,
kahee raat ro rahee hai.

Aaj mairey khwaabon ko
neend aa rahee hai,

Deemag say dil,
Dil say rooh ka safar hai,
Raat bhar ka katra,
Ghahra zahar hai, yeh gharee,
Jo Akhiri pahar ki lag rahee hai
Woh Fir fanaa kernay, sahar aa rahee hai,

Aaj mairey khwaabon ko
neend aa rahee hai,

Pyaree dushmanee ka nasha hai,
Dostee door say nibh rahee hai,
Sans sans bhar ker, jo
Dilrubba see lag rahee hai,
Woh Umrr qaid cut rahee hai.

Aaj mairey khwaabon ko
neend aa rahee hai,

Veerangee kee talhatee hai,
Lahar, ruksaad ho rahee hai,
Jaatee bahaar kay shararay,
Dareeya kay dil say ja kay poocho,
Poorey chand ki raat, jo lag rahee hai
Woh Uffaan mai bhee so rahee hai,

Aaj mairey khwaabon ko
neend aa rahee hai.

Ultee chaal

Jeewan ki aapa dhaapee mai,
Jab dourrd rahey thay aagey sabb,
Mai dabbay paanv ultaa chaltee,
Bheerd say aksar bhaagaa kertee,
Aur aaj bhee, ulta chaltee hoo,
Aasmaan kee jarddey khojtee mai,
Sookhay, murjhayay pairdo
Say aksar baatyain kertee hoo,
Kaheen to koi suraag milay,
Kaheen to aasman kay tukray sa
Jeewant, ujwal chiraag milay
Jo keh dey, mujhko, mairee khoj
Safal hui,
Mairee ultee chaal na vifal hui,
