~ Majnun to Laila ~
To wind’s ear, Majnun did whisper, longingly for only his Laila,
Wind, impatient, mindless, spilled the message, in the gush of air ..
Flecks of sand imbued, devotion of Majnun dribbling from them,
Two strings percolating his words, resound in surroundings afar..
‘What doth East, West would signify, North, South, much a lie,
Thy footprints in the direction I trace, on that trail I Prostrate’ …
~ Laila ko Majnun ka ~
Majnun ne Laila ke liye hawa ke kaan main kuch kaha,
Hawa ne nasamjhi main peghaam chaar su bikhra diya ..
Rayt ka resha resha bheega hai ab Majnun ke alfazon se,
Do dori se bandhe lafz, goonjhte hain yun fizaaon main ..
‘Mashriq kya, Maghrib kya, Shamal, Janoob, se kya khaiz,
Nishan tere paon ke pade jahan, Sijda mera zaroori wahan’ …
