Mirza Ghalib's Gazal

 

mirii hastii fazaa-e-hairat aabaad-e-tamannaa hai

jise kahte hai.n naala vo usii aalam kaa anqaa hai

 

KHizaa.n kyaa fasl-e-gul kahte hai.n kis ko ko.ii mausam ho

vahii ham hai.n qafas hai aur maatam baal-o-par kaa hai

 

vafaa-e-dilbaraa.n hai ittifaaqii varna ai hamdam

asar fariyaad-e-dil-haa-e-hazii.n kaa kis ne dekhaa hai

 

na laa.ii shoKHi-e-andesha taab-e-ra.nj-e-naumiidii

kaf-e-afsos milnaa ahd-e-tajdiid-e-tamannaa hai

 

na sove aablo.n me.n gar sirishk-e-diida-e-nam se

ba-jaulaa.n-gaah-e-naumiidii nigaah-e-aajizaa.n paa hai

 

ba-saKHtii-haa-e-qaid-e-zindagii maaluum aazaadii

sharar bhii said-e-daam-e-rishta-e-rag-haa-e-KHaaraa hai

 

taGaaful-mashrabii se naa-tamaamii bas-ki paidaa hai

nigaah-e-naaz chashm-e-yaar me.n zunnaar-e-miinaa hai

 

tasarruf vahshiyo.n me.n hai tasavvur-haa-e-majnuu.n kaa

savaad-e-chashm-e-aahuu aks-e-KHaal-e-ruu-e-lailaa hai

 

mohabbat tarz-e-paivand-e-nihaal-e-dostii jaane

daviidan resha saa.n muft-e-rag-e-KHvaab-e-zuleKHaa hai

 

kiyaa yak-sar gudaaz-e-dil niyaaz-e-joshish-e-hasrat

suvaidaa nusKHa-e-tah-bandi-e-daaG-e-tamannaa hai

 

hujuum-e-rezish-e-KHuu.n ke sabab ra.ng u.D nahii.n saktaa

hinaa-e-panja-e-saiyyaad murG-e-rishta bar-paa hai

 

asar soz-e-mohabbat kaa qayaamat be-muhaabaa hai

ki rag se sa.ng me.n tuKHm-e-sharar kaa resha paidaa hai

 

nihaa.n hai gauhar-e-maqsuud jeb-e-KHud-shanaasii me.n

ki yaa.n Gavvaas hai timsaal aur aa.iina dariyaa hai

 

aziizo zikr-e-vasl-e-Gair se mujh ko na bahlaa.o

What Now?

We look at the sky

She has no future for us

We laugh then I cry

         -COKL

Mixed signals

yes ,no, maybe so

let's go see a movie OR

let's just change our minds

        - COKL

she draws her last breath

death is knocking on her door

one's life has been lost

the south is coming

we will retake what was ours

it is overdue

                                                       Water passes river flow

                                            banks that end but never flow

                                                   the water is alive

Words come to be shared

Blogging opens an ink vein

Aortically

Night wind bit icy

Water beats into bottles
