1.
Aapse mulkat ki hai ye shaam hasin;aye naazneen, le chal,chale hum us dhalte hue sooraj ki kirno ke aagosh main;aye zarranasheen, tera husn to hai khudagawah ek sharara;aafreen, didar tera ho bas is nacheez ko nasib;aameen.
2.
Teri aankhon ke ujle ye paimane bol rahe hai ek anokha waqya, tamim hai teri ruh,benazir hai tera ishq;mera shukriya, tamaam jahaan main aisa manzar aur kahaan,sargoshi karta hai tera saaya, muskan bikher rahi hai teri ye nazar,wo khushi bhi to hai tera hi sarmaya.
3.
Aatif hai teri peshi,har zikra me teri hai ek ruhani khamoshi, aatish hai tera noor,har zarre par tere hi shabab ki hai tajposhi.
4.
Zeeshan-e-muhabbat ka rutba tujhe nawajta hoon aaj, ki is zindagi ka tu hai humnawa,tu hi is gazal ka saaz, pairo me teri jannat bakshu gar meri hukumat ho,pad gaye hai kam teri taarif main alfaz, gairiyat hai itni mujhme ki,fanoos saja doon teri rah main nikle jab tu pahne hijab.
5.
Ye lafz aapke zubaan se jo aaye is aabohawa main udkar, ye tohfe hai aapke hamare…

The girl on the porch...


Looking out of the window that shone azure,
My eyes found a girl on the porch,silent & demure,
she looked to me a lass of earth,unsoiled and pure,
a perfect woman for me,my beating heart told me for sure.

Repressing the urge to go and accost her was not easy,
because the prospect of loosing her made me queasy,
so,I took out my feet in direction of the porch,mind no longer dizzy,
she looked an angel,dress all white,her skin all silken and lizzy.

Battling her eyelids,she questioned my presence;all surprised,
I called out to her,to allay her fears;but instead had her mesmerised,
her silken voice was savoured by my eardrums;now I was petrified,
she blushed slightly,my heart jumped;it seemed she sympathised.

The conversation flourished,we seemed to have struck a chord,
the beautiful girl on the porch was now my friend,the skeptic in me now  was hanging by the sword,
true to my instincts,the evening took a beautiful hue,the stars twinkled,the lover within me roa…
