Baarish hu_ii to phuulo.n ke tan chaak ho gaye

 
baarish hu_ii to phuulo.n ke tan chaak ho gaye
mausam ke haath bhiig ke saffaak ho gaye

baadal ko kyaa Khabar ki baarish kii chaah me.n
kitane buland-o-baalaa shajar Khaak ho gaye

[buland-o-baalaa = high and low; shajar = tree]

juganuu ko din ke vaqt paka.Dane kii zid kare.n
bachche hamaare ahad ke chaalaak ho gaye

[ahad = times]

laharaa rahii hai barf kii chaadar haTaa ke ghaas
suuraj kii shah pe tinake bhii bebaak ho gaye

suuraj dimaaG log bhii iblaaG-e-fikr me.n
zulf-e-shab-e-firaaq ke pechaak ho gaye

jab bhii Gariib-e-shahar se kuchh guftaguu hu_ii
lahaje havaa-e-shaam ke nam_naak ho gaye

saahil pe jitane aab_guziidaa the sab ke sab
dariyaa ke ruKh badalate hii tairaak ho gaye

[aab_guziidaa = scared of water; tairaak = swimmers]
